since the 'publicans are making this a wedge issue i might as well state my position. consenting adults should be able to marry anyone(s) they want to marry under civil law. the 'gument should simply issue a certificate that states people have a marriage contract between them. each church can decide what the rules are for people who follow that religion. the church should not be able to decide anything for people who do not belong to it. who you marry is a private, cultural issue. if there is one thing the 'gument should NOT be doing it is determining who people can marry.
