Should marriage be a legal union between just a man and a woman?
Should marriage be a legal union between just a man and a woman or two (or more) people of any gender? 75% of republicans say it is a man/woman deal compared to just 10% of democrats. Only 31% of independants said M/F. Who is "right?"

I thought you were going to go and learn something and then come back an wow us all with your sparkling knowledge, if this is it, I'd advise going back and trying again.
Just out of curiosity, since you state that it's been this way since the dawn of time, given that you probably believe in the Adam and Eve story (even the Catholics abandoned that one). Genesis never states that they were married.
Marriage should be legal union between just a man and women.
So not a religious union then.
It should be like that all the time.
Why force your beliefs on others? "let he who is without sin..." and all that Jesus wisdom that asshole fundies are supposed to follow.

If a religion specifically states so and if marriage can be defined as a strictly religious ceremony and is not recognized by the state nor the participants given any benefits or disadvantages recognized by the state, then yes. But considering you clearly specify 'legal union,' I would say that the above doesn't apply.
So specifically with regard to the United States (and the majority of other countries in the world which are not theocracies), a country whose constitution promotes liberty above all else, and specifically states that “congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” it is unconstitutional to provide legal benefits which are granted exclusively to people who get married, and then restrict the people who can obtain a marriage based on an attribute of theirs that is not illegal.
That is discrimination.
