    I don't think there's any chance in hell that's going to happen now, once the ball starts rolling, and it's rolling really fast now, there's no stopping it. Only the idiots and the religious retards are standing in the way and I hope it runs all of those freaks over.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    There is nt really a rationale that leads to forcing churches to marry anyone. If they open a school, or a hospital, or any other business, those secular endeavors are subject to anti-discrimination laws. But not churches themselves.

    No of course not. Nor is it reasonable to believe that they would be.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    More likely it's the people calling others "idiots," "retards," and "freaks" that are standing in the way - no matter what side of the argument they're on.
