    Here's a stone you'd better watch out for.

    I support government getting out of the marriage business. I also support the right of businesses not to service gay weddings if the weddings offend their moral sensibilities. Basically, I don't care if gays marry. I just don't want to be forced to bake them a cake, sell them flowers or take their pictures.

    I'm good with this. In the end, it doesn't matter what it is called, as long as legally all couples obtaining this legal status have the exact same rights and responsibilities. It'll most likely still be called marriage by society as a whole and even by government workers. But the legal aspect is far more important than the label.

    I might be able to let that one slide and a Jewish thing as it was more an OT type of thing vice NT. But how about Christians who have burned women at the stake (men too), drowned women, tortured and executed others all for the sake of their religion.

    Oh what's that? You don't personally know of any such people? Guess what? You don't personally know of any such Muslims either. Oh sure you know of such individuals via news and other information sources. You also know of such Christians via information sources. Any denial of knowledge of the Inquisition and the Witch Hunts would have to be a lie on your part as these are common knowledge items. Knowledge of details, yes, but there is little credibility of not knowing about what Christians have done, and still do (abortion clinic and doctor bombing and murders, Irish Catholic/Protestant war) in the name of their religions.

    Of course all this still has nothing to do with the fact that you claim that there are countries that ban religion and yet you cannot name a single one.

    I'm good with the latter part, but legal marriage is still needed to establish legal relationship status between those who are not blood related, similar to how adoption works. Marriage is still needed as a legal status, but I will agree that all the currently is attached to marriage in the legal sphere is not necessary. Some but not all.
