    We're a secular country. We don't have a religion that controls us. Get over it.
    Not yet, but after the Bible is out the quaran will still be here and growing like a cancer. Get used to it, your great grandchildren will be dealing with it.

    I can't help if the uber liberal values of this country are morphing our country to something it once wasn't.

    Oh yeah.....I'm not homophobic as liberals like to label those who live believing in the Bible. It's just the belief that a marriage is between a Man and Woman as stated in the Bible.
    yeah right, that's why the very 1st amendment establishes separation of church and state, and many founders were openly hostile to christianity

    in other words, you're homophobic, got it

    And I'm guessing the Quaran has its own definition of marriage.

    You want to follow YOUR religion's view on marriage, go for it. Doesn't mean the rest of us have to follow your religion.

    Got anything to say about the justices in Alabama
    I already did, but you took me down a rabbit trail.

    If it feels good then it should be legal, right?

    It's just the tip of the iceberg for the possibilities......it's all about individual liberties after all, right?
    At least the Bible did define marriage. So did the courts up until our generation.
    That's your argument against individual liberty? "It might lead to other examples of freedom I don't like?"

    Slippery slope of personal freedom doesn't sound scary to me.

    I can come up with arguments against child marriage that are readily sufficient to pass the test of the 14th amendment. Can you do the same for same-sex marriage?

    You might want to look at what the 1st amendment was really about regarding the separation of church and state.
    The catholic church in England was dictating political policy to the state.....

    The better option is to prevent any religion from being used as the sole basis for law. Then you don't have to worry about Islam deciding US law, and I don't have to worry about Leviticus deciding US law.

    The trouble with people in absolutist religions is that they tend to assume that only theirs is correct and only theirs will be used to set the law.

    If Islam is growing, you should be building that wall between church and state as high as you can make it.
