"let's just give the government the ability to pick and choose who gets what rights based on the mandate of a foreign power" - Theocrats on the other side

You can get married without the government, it's just that the government won't recognize it. Faggots could have traded vows and put a ring on it since time immemorial.

Le atheism is worse than theocratic.

Traditional marriage is a contract, based around three main value props.

  • Exclusive reproduction rights for exclusive access to resources
  • Security for comfort
  • Emotional empathy for emotion stability

The modern religious groups get hung up on the first point, the other two somewhat apply to non-traditional marriages.

The problem is the breakdown of the social contract between those that reproduce and those that don't.

The rest of it is nonsense.

I love it when fags ignore secular arguments against gay marriage and just smear everyone as a braindead religious nut.

You are the ignorant ones.
