Christians should just get married in the church and refuse to apply for a marriage license etc.

If the state does not recognize what a marriage is, why ask for their permission or give them the information?

Marriage is a religious sacriment, so if the state thinks it is something else, why should I bother with the state when I am involved in my religious sacriment?

Get a church marriage and file the appropriate legal paperwork for limited powers of attorney, guardianship, etc.

Marriage predates religious sacraments - and manmade civil codes as well.

Exactly. Some faith’s already don’t really think little pieces of paper from the gubberment necessarily make anyone married or not.

The statists and homosexualists love that many have been conditioned to think the state defines marriage, that way they accept whatever the state says about marriage, including impossibilities like “gay marriage”. Same thing with education and charity.
