"A state does have the right to sanction single gender marriage." Nope. Read the 10th Amendment.
If you have such strong fiscal concerns then I would hope that you would support getting rid of tax breaks for straight married couples and churches. No? Didn't think so.
Conservative Republicans are terrified of them. You guys think that if same sex marriage is legalized then the country, nay western society, will collapse. If that's not an irrational fear then I don't know what is.
What tax dollars are going to be used for gay marriage?
It's not a phobia because you're against it, it's a phobia because you have an irrational fear of it.

If marriage were about rearing children then post-menopausal women couldn't get married or would have their marriages annulled. Infertile people would be banned from getting married. Polygamy would be legal. Your attempted secular argument is incoherent.
