"IT'S GOING TO RUIN MARRIAGES ALL AROUND THE UNITED STATES! IT IS ALL APART OF YOUR GAY AGENDA!"
I have heard this said to me on many occaisions, and let me tell you: There is no "gay agenda".
Why is the government even involved in marriage? Is it not a religious ceremony? This is the simple fact, and of course the government has to have their hand in everything, so marriage is one of them. Did you know that it costs $72 to get a marriage certificate from Harris County? It costs money to get a piece of paper saying that you are married. Just let that soak in.
Your religious convictions and I am a Christian I may add, are useless if you’re making marriage a political thing. The United States has the right of Religious Freedom, as guaranteed by the first amendment. That was the avocation of separation of church and state. If you have a problem with separation of church and state, then feel free to thank Thomas Jefferson for that. He came up with the concept in the early 1800s.
Any way that you look at it, the government should not have a say in your life, public nor private!
