I know we have separation of church and state here in America, but that does not mean that religious ideals (mainly Christian) don't influence decisions our country makes. I honestly believe that is the main reason why the government wont allow homosexuals to get married in America.

have freedom OF not FROM religion. Unbelievable that people are so badly educated to think that religious values have no place in decision making. Their historical ignorance is really hurting this country. Without a firm grounding in right and wrong, how could any person decide what to do...guess?

The Constitution-1st amendment.
But they do not say the religion should be a part of government and they do not say that any member of the government should be allowed to make decisions based on their religious beliefs.

It's naive to think that an individuals most closely-held ideals would not influence how he/she votes or otherwise participates in the political process. Whether or not these ideals come from a religious basis should be immaterial. It shouldn't be about why you vote but how you vote.
