If gays shouldn't be married because the church disapproves then why can others marry?

If marriage is religious then I shouldn't be married because I don't believe in religion?

marriage is more than that it is for the protection of children and wife, there are far reaching repurcussions beyond wanting to extend marriage. Just call one marriage and one a union. They already use partner instead of husband or wife

I was told my some religious types that my marriage was doomed for failure from the get-go because we lived together before marriage and were "unequally yoked."

But since this religous type doesn't believe in divorce, I guess what she meant was that I was doomed for misery.

I'm willing to bet my marriage has less strife and drama than hers. I know her husband, and unless he's changed, he's moodier than a pregnant woman hyped up on hormones.

I don't get "religious" people any more--and I used to be one of them.

No religion should dictate what has government involvement.

The way I look at it, I have no problem with gay marriage. If a church decides that they do not want to marry gay couples so be it, but they should be able to go to a JOP and get married. My husband and I were not married in a church, we were married by a JOP we are still very much married no matter who married us.

I'm atheist and my husband is catholic. We didn't go through a church, but we're legally married.

There is seperation of church and state. Therefore the law should be able to recognize gay marriage. Also gay couples pay more in taxes because they cannot file joint married.

If its your religion than keep it in your religion.

I'm not saying I agree with it but its an interesting argument.
