"UnMarriage Until Gay Marriage" in NYC's Central Park

Activist 'Reverend Billy' is holding a Valentine's Day unmarriage mass ritual to support marriage equality. The protest will include hundreds of couples who will suspend their wedding vows in a mass ritual and disavow the institution of marriage until it embraces same-sex couples.

The Reverend Billy will conduct a mass sermon and tragic and hopeful love songs will be sung. Participants will receive an official unmarried certificate.

I hate this! I told one of the interns at my work so this week. Look, it's well-intentioned and sweet. However, I don't want people in mixed-gender relationships to forgo marriage on our account, just, you know, vote our way and be prepared to discuss the issue sometimes. I notice it's not actually a legal divorce. I still don't like it. It gives the impression that we *want* others to go without, that we want to punish!
