I cannot wrap my head around why anyone would be opposed to gay marriage. The only arguments I have heard against gay marriage are religious. I hear that we “need to protect the sanctity of marriage” a lot.
The sanctity of marriage? The marriage full of divorce and abuse and adultery? Sounds real sacred to me. And we aren’t asking for holy unions, which I assume is what you mean by “marriage.” That is something you have to debate through the church because a holy union is, indeed, a religious institution. What the LGBT community wants is legal marriages: To be legally recognized as, and to have the rights of, a couple. And, if anyone besides me has heard of the separation of church and state, this should have nothing to do with any religion. It is a legal battle, not a religious one.
