MKs should show more seriousness. Civil marriage is a freedom issue. Civil marriage should be a honor for Israel, not the shame the religious parties think about. Every people should be free to marry anybody. Any Jew should be free to marry in a reform, conservative, or orthodox way. Any Jew should be free to marry any Jew. Any Jew should be free to marry any Arab. Anybody should be free to marry a same-sex person. This is freedom and it would be a great honor for Israel to wave its flag for freedom. Especially in the Middle East.
