It’s enough to make you blush

November 17, 2008

“Religious freedom, without intrusion by the gov’t, demands that marriage remain a man-woman union, a critical building block of our society, and hands off. The court became a rouge with this decision.”

Cheeky judges.

    If marriage was religious, this person would be right. But it’s civil/civic, and therefore, they are wrong.

    I’d have no problem whatsoever with giving religions the space to define unions as they wish, and have civil and civic recognition of interdependent relationships (whether sexual or not) recognized in a different way, much as people like Lisa Duggan propose.

    People who say marriage is about religion are missing the 1000+ ways that marriage is involved with the state.
