Get the government out of the business of Marriage. They can define a Sacrament like Marriage no better than one such as Communions, Reconciliation or Holy Orders. Let others that call themselves Churches define their Sacraments freely, of course, but do not taint what many consider Holy by forcing your agenda into a place both Holy and Sacred.

Exactly, government should get out of marriage.

This means either straight marriages do not get ANY benefits from marriage, or everyone gets benefits. Christian defined marriage should not be the same definition as the government definition and your benefits from getting married should only apply to the government definition of marriage.

Treat people as individuals, that is what conservatives believe in!

Last year while on a road trip with some friends, we turned on the radio with the windows rolled down and let our hair fly, something everyone should do when they have the chance. A song came on with lyrics that included the words “What do I stand for?” The same song popped into my head yesterday and made me think of the challenge I and my generation are facing: What do we stand for?

I love my generation. Our idea of fashion is choosing to buy shoes because part of the proceeds provides shoes for a child in another country....
