You can't have it both ways - if marriage is nothing more than a "business licence" then the only business any level of government, local, state, or federal, has in "defining" it is as a voluntary contract between two adults. The GOP needs to stop letting the religious right lead it around by the nose on this issue and get on the moral and ethical side of individual liberty: the right to manage and dispose of one's personal property and assets and to establish legal contracts with other adults. If it were to do that, then it could also easily support the rights of others to, on an individual basis, recognize or not any such contracts that violate their own individual rights to religious freedom or voluntary association.
