In Their Language

I understand that many people feel that permitting marriage between gays is essentially a sin, but if we legislate against the right of gays to marry, then we should also be legislating against divorcees remarrying; since no man should be permitted to sunder what God has joined together, divorcees are still married and cannot remarry.

And what other sinners should be legislated against after that, if we keep gays and divorcees from marrying? Should those who engage in pre-marital sex be barred from the right to marry?

Leave each church to censure amongst their own congregations, and let those of us who belong to a different church or faith live by our own religious beliefs. Don't violate everyone's First Amendment rights and hold one church's ideas over all of us.

Even sinners have equal protection under the law.
