    In case you have been hiding in a hole, there isn't a grand awakening of conservatives wanting the government to get out of marriage either. The majority of conservaties AND the GOP aren't doing a damn thing about government being involved in marriage. Cons love using big government to be the morality police.

    Oh, so your concern was for gay people then? That's unexpectedly gracious of you.

    Well, in that case then thanks for the offer of removing government from marriage for the sake of gay people, but as government is now coming around to giving them equal rights that offer won't be necessary any longer.

    Thanks anyway, though!

    It wouldn't be an issue if the government wasn't in the marriage business. It's like this: once you grant the government the power to give a right, you also grant the government the power to take it away.

    A moot point as gays are getting their equal rights. Thanks again though, your concern is appreciated!

    Ok, but don't get pissy if it gets taken away, again.

    Understood. As you've enlisted your help you can write your congressperson and let him/her know that you support full equal protection for gays. It's not a lot, but every little bit does help.

    Thank you!

    Can you honestly tell me that you ever once expressed a concern like this before same-sex marriage started becoming legal?

    So you are concerned that the government is going to start taking away marriage tax credits and such? Hospital visitation rights?

    Is that what I said? Stop being so damned argumentative and ask me about what I said, not what I didn't say.
