And why does it matter to you if gays want to be together? What's with the hate?
2. That the pilgrims did something does not make it right.
3. Even though it doesn't affect the rightness of it, I'll point out that the pilgrims founded an even more religiously authoritarian state.
Just as it is wrong when some ME country wants to stone women for infidelity, or not having their face covered in public, it's wrong for a Christian nation to deny gays the ability to marry based on nothing but religious dogma.

Richard Jewell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Even though NBC stood by its story, the network agreed to pay Jewell $500,000.On July 23, 1997, Jewell sued The New York Post for $15 million in damages, contending that the paper portrayed him in articles, photographs and an editorial cartoon as an "aberrant" person with a "bizarre employment history" who was probably guilty of the bombing. He eventually settled with the newspaper for an undisclosed amount.Jewell filed suit against his former employer Piedmont College, Piedmont College President Raymond Cleere and college spokesman Scott Rawles. Jewell's attorneys contended that Cleere called the FBI and spoke to the Atlanta newspapers, providing them with false information on Jewell and his employment there as a security guard. Jewell's lawsuit accused Cleere of describing Jewell as a "badge-wearing zealot" who "would write epic police reports for minor infractions."
Piedmont College settled for an undisclosed amount.Seems like he made out with a bit of money. Probably more than he would have earned during what was left of his life. If everything goes right for this kid, he's got his education completely paid for.Although CNN settled with Jewell for an undisclosed monetary amount, CNN maintained its coverage was fair and accurate.
