20. It's not a goofy suggestion

 

a lot of people enjoy mandatory prayers in public schools. Is it really hurting anyone to continue this practice?

Well yeah kinda because it's a nonessential blending of the public and the church and is inherently discriminatory.

Why should people who choose to pair off in ways historically approved of by the church be granted special rights and privileges?

Marriage is well-established as a civic and legal institution


Again, no different than putting the 10 commandments outside of public institutions.

Or having prayer in public schools.

Or any number of silly religious based notions we're supposed to be moving away from.

The contractual benefits of a marriage can be achieved without a marriage. Let anyone who wishes say they are married following whatever ceremony they choose.

Let the state do what it does well: enforce contracts.
