Virginia has just found itself in the middle of a long lived debate.. that just ended last night. Gay/lesbian marrige... Now maybe im more of a liberal.. But I say that it should have nothing to do with the state.. If a church wishes to marry a couple no matter if they are gay or lesbian... it is then up to the state to back up that agreement between married couples. We ask the state for permission to get married when we should be asking our priests/ministers.. perhaps this is why so many marriages get started on the wrong foot.. the court dosent care how much you love one another.. or if you are aware of the extent of your agreement to wed.... they just see it as 25$ per married couple.. and a couple of thousand if they dont make it.. and divorce.. think about it people. I feel that if a religion wishes to marry ANYONE, who is a devout follower of that religion.. and i do mean.. a devout follower.. they are free to do so.. it is the states role.. to make sure that these religions are only marry those which it deems... devout.. each religion establishing thier own criteria of which conditions they will marry... tell me what you think!
