    The government obviously has to be somewhat involved considering that there are legal rights one gains when they are married. Overall, though, I agree that the government shouldn't have a say in who gets to marry who. However, the religious aspect of marriage should be handled by the religions. Churches that refuse to marry gay couples because it is against their ideology should be allowed that right.

    I doubt it... But that is why it is so amusing.

    And now you are getting defensive? Actually, I'm not sure if you are aware of this or not, but this is a public forum. If you want to submit private messages to other people, feel free to PM them. Otherwise, deal with it.

    It is up to the states, is it not? Most have decided to promote heterosexual coupling b/c of its obvious societal benefits. Potential benefits of promoting homosexual coupling is a topic worthy of debate, but I canít see how "getting government out of marriage" helps the country.

    You're doing it again. You can't help yourself.

    You're vs. Your

    Contraction "You Are" vs. Possessive "Your"

    You're illiterate.

    Your illiteracy makes angels weep.
