    Oh, and just to add to my previous answer without interrupting any potential replies to it, here are what some states have to say on how defending same sex marriage bans are paid for:

    Utah Plans To Spend $2 Million In Taxpayer Dollars To Defend Anti-Gay Discrimination | ThinkProgress

    New Utah AG: Cost to defend same-sex marriage ban worthwhile :: The Salt Lake Tribune

    "However, Tarbet revealed that Monte N. Stewart, a Boise attorney and founding president of the Utah-based Marriage Law Foundation, has helped the state craft its legal theory so far and will be the attorney of record on the stay application. Stewart also will assist the state with its appeal to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in what could be an estimated $2 million legal battle over Amendment 3."

    PA-Gov: Tom Corbett's (R) Lawsuit To Uphold PA's Same-Sex Marriage Ban Costs Taxpayers $400 An Hour

    "Taxpayers will spend $400 an hour — and possibly a lot more — for Gov. Tom Corbett to hire an outside law firm to fight a federal lawsuit challenging the state's 1996 ban on gay marriage. "

    Just to give you a couple.

    Are you referring to those based on Judeo/Christian values or the other kind?

    Since morals are not only defined by (any) religion, there must be a common ground for any laws to be based on them in the US. You of course may act according to your beliefs personally (within the law).

    So...how do you define morality? You can use your religious context but then you should understand why others do not view it the same.

    Everyone has morals. Other people may have different morals than you in a lot of ways, but everyone has morals.

    Who gave you the keys to marriage? What contract gave you that right to define marriage for eveyone else...where does that power come from?

Would you be more likely to get divorced if a gay couple next door got married?

    Exactly what about your life or your marriage, or anybody else's marriage, is being harmed here?

    Why is your approval of someone else's marriage important? Is my approval of your marriage equally important? If I disapprove of your union, should it be illegal?
    Can you answer any of these questions for me?
