    You only care about government involvement in marriage because gays are getting it. All the fake ass "pro family and traditional marriage" crap is going away and the true anti gay animus is coming to the surface.

    Actually marriage has simply changed function with changes in society, since it has never had the same prime function for every couple who has ever been married. There is a reason for the phrase "merger the old fashion way" referring to when two companies end up merging because the owners' children get married.

    I'm not willing to give up my protections nor bankrupt the government or cause people major legal battles and costs just because you and a few others don't want to share.

    Untrue. But the situation throws up the question for debate and the natural thing to do with a dysfunctional government activity is to get rid of it.

    And the new function is a private good and no a public good. Like most of the school system it has been overtaken by developments and is no longer a legitimate activity for government..

    Not true. The public benefits, as it has for quite some time, from all marriages and is involved in protecting people and recognition of legal kinship, which is what marriage establishes. Should we do away with birth certificates as well?

    Nope. Never was a concern for anyone on this forum until gays started getting marriage. Your true agenda is transparent.

    Just checking, since there are people who wish to completely deny the Lawrence decision and it's affect on sodomy laws. Didn't think you were one of them, but sometimes my brain gets jumbled.
