  •  I don't have a problem with combining the 2 (0+ / 0-)

    Not all churchs are bigoted, plenty will legally marry gay couples.

    •  Combinint the two is half the problem (0+ / 0-)

      if not more. We are prone to think of marriage as something sacred in the US, which makes it much easier for the more conservately religious to object to same-sex marriage because even where a marriage is entirely civil, those folks will never view it that way. The confusion is part of our national habit. And allowing clergy to act in the role of civil authority when it comes to marriage perpetuates that confusion.

      •  I'm arguing that it's not, if they want to (0+ / 0-)

        combine the two, that's fine by me, because my religion supports and endorses gay marriage. If they make that argument, answer it with this one "you're religion is not the only religion in Untied States, and other religions have an opposite perceptive on this issue.  What gives you the right to set the law for them?"
