Im not knocking your logic at its foundation Im asking you to think about it in the reality of america. Even now in politics blue and red are the devil to each other and i think this will not work.
you know somebody might have lol
ALSO id have to disagree because many people used religion to keep women and minorities down, the reasons didnt apply then and should now.
So actually my example could very well be based on religion.
if it was that simple many things already violate that, non legal seen marriage which is already going on. so by default this argument is hugely hypocritical too
religion marriage alone has no legal rights
marriage is not owned by religion
the argument that the word is sacred is invalid for many reasons, a couple being right now gays can get married just not legally recognized. Two the state already marries people WITHOUT religion. So is that marriage being forced on you?
also if you think they are "separate" then legal marriage has nothing to do with religion which is true, but you want it too. You want the legal to ONLY reflect religion, that would already go against what you are saying hence the hypocrisy.
