Everything must be sacrificed on the altar of esteeming and celebrating homosexual behavior. No freedom of speech, religion, or association will be tolerated if it conflicts with this.
If you want to make a Leftist twitch, tell them you're aborting your late-term fetus because tests showed the fetus is gay.
One of the problems state/local governments have with these services is that they are selling something by mileage or time, and when you sell something by some measurable thing, weights & measures enforcement comes into play. Taximeters and ambulance meters can be, and are, tested regularly. But the government is trying to figure out how they're going to fairly and consistently test the devices (GPS? Smart phone?) used to charge the customer of these new services. I love that technology is offering these solutions, and it would be nice if government could keep pace with innovation so as to not react by banning it.
But it will be interesting to watch the same court that said in the DOMA case that the federal government must defer to states on marriage turn around and let federal courts force the neutering of licenses on states.
It doesn't harm kosher food if my cheeseburger, topped with bacon-wrapped shrimp, is sold as "kosher". And yes, government can enforce kosher labeling.
States issue marriage licenses rather than making people jump through a bunch of separate hoops. You can "keep government out of marriage" until someone leaves the relationship, or dies, or wants to be recognized as next of kin, etc.
Yeah yeah yeah, precedent and separation of powers and all of that... none of it matters. Everything must be sacrificed on the altar of esteeming homosexual behavior.

I used to scoff at that, until Leftists started demanding human rights be applied to other species.

"Gay marriage happened because of decades of work done by millions and millions of gay people..." Oh, so it's OK deny minorities "rights" as long as they are a smaller minority?

I disagree that polygamy will come after pedophilia. It's a tossup as to whether polygamy or incest is next, but those will happen before pedophilia. Consent? The pedophiles have ways of arguing around that. And why does consent really matter, since we're just nothing at all but molecules, qualitatively the same as a pebble. Survival of the fittest, right? Unless something shifts, they will literally keep pushing until their are orgies in front of city hall in broad daylight, complete with whips, chains, children, and animals. I wish I was exaggerating.
Parents have a lot less power now, and many children have figured that out. Consider this. It is entirely legal to let your child grow up to be a spoiled or ill-behaved brat. Doing something to try to prevent that may be illegal. Some parents would rather be ashamed of their children than convicted criminals, so they don't risk breaking the law. As long as the children don't seriously hurt other people or their property before they turn 18, their parents can kick them out and they will be off the book. Society will have to deal with their horrible adult children, but they don't have to deal with them any more than the next guy.
