Ronald Reagan: Same-Sex Marriage Advocate?

I think Reagan would have been smart enough to turn things around and try to take the government (and government benefits) out of marriage rather than engage that fight. Government is reduced, there is tolerance without approval, and churches can decide for themselves what a marriage is.

Indeed, that really is the libertarian position. However, if the state does recognize marriage as a legal institution then it must recognize same sex marriage by the 14th Amendment. Furthermore DOMA violates the 10th Amendment to the Constitution.

I agree on the government taking the benefits out of the classification of marriage. Especially, take the taxation exemptions either away or provide these exemptions to all, equally.

Here's the thing though. Marriage contributes to a stable society.
