    Great, then there's no reason to oppose gay marriage, is there?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Of course, the state isn't interfering in church business, the modern institution of marriage is a purely secular, legal institution that has nothing whatsoever to do with religion. Certainly some religious people would like to celebrate their legal marriage with religious ceremonies, but that doesn't make marriage religious, only the ceremonies.

    You can walk down all the aisles in all the churches you want, you're not married until you get that piece of paper from the state.

    While I'm sure it varies from state to state, whatever form the marriage license takes and by which the state considers you to be legally married.

    Re: How will gay marriage affect your marriage?

    Gosh I have divorced and married 6 times. Was it all because I met that gay lady in paris in 1965.

    I was told that it was because of a gay man, that WW2 started in 1939.

    I was once accosted verbally by a gay man, but I was more interested in his wife to care what he wanted. She was a Hot Fox.

    my goal has always been to live with 5 lovely beautiful rich ladies, and have them support me in a great fashion.

    If you are going to have a fantasy life that is completely unachieveable, it might as well be a good one...

    Then if marriage is nothing but a "purely secular, legal institution" as you are claiming and the state controls this "purely secular, legal institution" it would seem to me it would be easy for this "state" to change the laws. No. Methinks your explanation is trying to oversimplify what is a very deep, moral issue that the state has no business legislating and brushing this facet of the issue aside only causes more divisiveness.

    So you agree that gay marriage can in fact affect other marriages?

    Re: How will gay marriage affect your marriage?

    What's all this talk about churches, etc, when the OP doesn't address any specific argument? Anti-gm folks are claiming that gay marriage will directly harm their personal marriage? Ok, who's saying this? What exactly did they say? Please give a link so we can verify that you’re not simply taking an extreme example of the fringe and presenting it as a representative opinion of the main anti-gm argument.
