I know that many of you say Gay Marriage is against your religious beliefs and therefore shouldn't be legal. However, Laws in this country are not made because of religious beliefs. If they were we would have a very confusing (or even more confusing) legal system... Because from religion to religion beliefs are obviously different.
So, why can't we simply seperate the two? I know a good many people that believe they are seperate already. So why not make it official? Allow LEGAL marriage to be just that, and religious marriage to be before God(s). If you want to be legally married just go pay your $35 for a license and get all the legal perks to marriage...

I understand that older... However, I don't see why this would be such a difficult thing to do. Many of the "Anti-Gay Marriage" politicians have said that they would be okay with "Civil Unions." So, what I am saying is instead of only allowing Gay's to have Civil Unions and Everyone else have Civil or Religious Marriage... Why not allow anyone to have a Civil Union/Marriage (with equal rights to marriage) and Keep the religious aspect separate... As it should be... At this point Gay Marriage is not legal here in PA. But I know many that are Handfasted... (Pagan religious "marriage"). So, why can't we just agree to disagree and allow the legal aspects and religious to be separate?
