As long as it's not hurting or endangering anyone, nobody should care about what is going on in another person's home. Separation of church and state. The concept of marriage (straight, gay, or otherwise) shouldn't even be acknowledged by government. A person's rights should not be different because they are married or not, gay or not, female or not, etc. I say repeal all laws related to religious contracts such as marriage! Live free or die. Those who do not have the courage to defend freedom, don't deserve it. - thorie (twitter) vote up image vote down image 0
