    But we should NEVER base law on the MOST availability, but on the LEAST availability.
    Many counties in North Carolina have 1 magistrate that handles both Civil AND Criminal matters at the same time.

    Pretending there is a long line of Magistrates just sitting around waiting for work, rather than a long line of citizens waiting patiently (and impatiently) for their opportunity to come before one is laughable.

    Also, pretending that in the rural parts of North Carolina (which is most of it) that there will be a Magistrate who DOESN'T have this "deeply held religious belief" is also quite laughable.
    Does North Carolina have a large Gay population?

    Well, let's be honest...same sex marriage isn't legit either. Sure there's a fancy piece of paper, but it's not a real union they way Jenner isn't a real woman. It's like installing a wheelchair ramp on your building, the person is still disabled, you're just accommodating them for the sake of everyone getting along. We call Jenner a woman so that "she" can function better within society, but Jenner isn't really a woman. We call gays "married" so they too can function better within society, but they aren't really married, just on paper. The state doesn't have the power to decide legitimacy no matter how badly it wants to pretend.

    Yes, it does beg the question...

    why is the government involved with who consenting adults are allowed to love and why are "small government" conservatives constantly trying to legislate what happens in the bedroom.

    Despite one obscure polygamous couple in Montana asking for recognition, polygamy is not nearly as popular for same-sex marriage, and there is no large push for it, so I don't see anything coming of it.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

It's the southern conservative states and Mormon strongholds (also conservative) where cousin ****ing, animal ****ing and polygamy occur the most anyway, so consider it a win for the south.
    If it's not your business then feel free to leave the thread. Many of us do consider public policy our business, though, seeing as how we pay the taxes that fund it.

    It's not about love. It's about pooling resources and and property inheritance.

    I was not thinking of that primarily. But even causes throws up quite a few legal questions and has led to new regulation in Germany. Even after that it is still problematic in not treating everyone the same. The real problem is the separation ie prohibition of state involvement in religiin and its practice.
