propose to tell OTHER churches that they cannot marry gay couples? I keep seeing posts about how marriage should be left to the religious, but what about the religions who have no problem with gay marriage?

Any church that chooses to marry homosexual couples needs to go back and read their Bible
About half of mainline Protestant pastors support gay marriage, and even more support other rights for gay families. That's a whole lot of trained clergy you seem to think you are qualified to order around.

From what I can tell, these folks think that the definition of marriage can only be applied to those unions that their religious membership deems appropriate. Why does 1 group think they can dictate laws that are guaranteed for all? Why can't people just apply their rules to their marriage and be satisfied? No, they want to dictate for those they deem amoral. 1 poster even mentioned that she does not care what other faith based groups do. I guess she does not accept that many religious denominations have no problem with gay marriage. Bottom line, You follow Your faith and apply your rules to YOU only. If gay marriage is unacceptable to YOUR faith, then YOU should not engage in such relationships.
YOUR religious rules should have nothing to do with the legality of others' marriages or their right to partake in the exact same relationship that YOU enjoy.
