The more I think about this, the more I agree with those who think that government should be out of the marriage business.
The sodomites love that position. In public forums I've seen them stand to their feet and cheer it, in fact. I ask you to please rethink this.
Fact is, marriage is not only a spiritual thing, a sacrament if you will, it is the foundation of civil society. It is the most basic building block of human governance and economy. The state has an overriding interest. The survival and health of the natural family is of the gravest importance to any nation, a matter of our very survival.
