    Re: Federal judge strikes down Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage

    I've noticed that the "I don't think the government should be involved in marriage" line of reasoning and the push toward marriage equality seem to have evolved simultaneously and at an almost identical rate. Smacks to me of "If it's not just ours anymore, nobody can have it!"
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Everyone can have it once the state is not involved, you silly goose.

    There's no reason everyone can't have it with the state involved.

    The state is the reason (as you can see).

    You are free not to have the state "intervene" in your marriage.

    You don't like it, then don't get married. Don't try to dictate the terms for everyone else.

    I'm not sure you are responding to the right person.

    I do not support state intervention (which would be "dictating the terms for everyone else").
