    marriage should not be an issue for government and yet she's in favor of government's restricting marriage to be between one man and one woman?  The hypocrisy and logic fail is a principle reason Prop H8 and DOMA were challenged in the courts.  

    If they don't want government involved in civil contracts between people, don't have any marriages (since in reality, it's the marriage contract which has force of law, not the religious ceremony which is entirely optional across these here United States).  If they do want government telling people who can get married and who can't, then it's based upon religious preferences and those, by the first Amendment, are right out.  

    I see parallels with the abortion and women's rights issues.  Conservatives want to end abortion and yet they also claim they want to limit government reach.  Well they're certainly reaching within women's bodies through these various forced ultrasounds and getting between a woman and her doctor in denying her health care.  Hypocrisy abounds.
