Is the issue of Gay marriage a LEGAL issue or a RELIGIOUS issue?

Postby tripp » Mon May 14, 2012 3:48 pm

If gay marriage is a LEGAL issue, then isn't the proper place for it in the Courts?

If it is a religious issue, then how do people of one faith justify telling people of another faith (or, of no faith) that in the US, ALL faiths must follow the doctrines of the current, majority faith?

BQ: Are Christians, who tell those of another faith, (or, no faith at all) they all must adhere to a Christian Doctrine, committing EXACTLY the same thing they accused Obama of doing when the law came out to Mandate Contraceptives for certain Church-owned properties, like schools and hospitals?

The issue is based on religion.

Beware of hateful gods, they often have hateful followers.

If you ask them, it's a legal issue but the truth is it is a religious issue which is in itself not legal since there is supposed to be a separation of church and state.

Marriage is a government contract, if churches want say in the matter they need to help us move towards a secular society. We need civil unions for all people to cover the 'legal' side of joining, and marriage should be a separate, non-legal, private religious ceremony.

Personally, I have no idea why any of this is a government function. I don't feel like I needed the government to tell me it was OK to get married. Get them out, problem totally solved.

Government is never the solution. They start mucking around in stuff it always causes problems and never solves any.

Legal issue, the only way to respect religions is when religions respect humanity.

Neither, it's plain stupid to justify sick and unnatural lifestyles that promote disease and depravity .
