    marry them anyway. Idjit.

    When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.

      What makes these right-wing gasbags think that if the religious exemption weren't in place, any same-sex couple would want to let someone who hates their breathing guts officiate over one of the most important and meaningful days of their lives?

      Do the right-wing gasbags really think that same-sex couples would derive such psychological satisfaction from sticking a thumb in the eye of a bigot preacher that they would want to get married by someone who thinks they don't deserve basic human rights?

      It seems rather far-fetched to me.
