113. That actually mirrors what happens with opposite-sex couples

My wife and I could not have been married in most churches, because we're atheists. Most churches will not marry people who are not part of their faith.

Yet most people against same-sex marriage pretend that situation doesn't occur. That making same-sex marriage legal at the courthouse would require it to be legal in a church. Since that's already not the case with opposite-sex couples, it's a stupid argument only designed to rile up the base.
