    they make the situation worse, not better, by continually confusing civil marriage with religion.

    The government HAS to be in the marriage business because marriage is a legal state - if we kept religion out the legal marriage business it would make more sense.

    In some countries to be legally married you have to see a government offical, and then those people who wish to can go have a religious ceremony  seperately.

    Saying the government should be out of the marriage business just confuses things, which isn't very helpful in a ally

    •  Fine... (0+ / 0-)

      go find everyone who thinks just like you do, drive out all the "heretics" from the temple, and....

      you'll be just like the Republican Party is about to be, with a bunch of close-minded social conservatives talking into their own echo chamber.

      Good luck...

      •  How is it closed minded (0+ / 0-)

        to state the fact that civil marriage is a legal entity ?

        I am just trying to prevent rampant confusion which only serves the purposes of the religious right.
