19. Oh, I agree.......
I'm appalled at the numbers, the vast numbers of people who don't understand that there are two kinds of marriage - religious and civil - and civil is the only one that matters, legally.

The fundies, big surprise, have capitalized on that ignorance and there they stand.

It's like abortion - if you don't approve of it, don't have one. Same with marriage - if you don't want to marry someone, don't do it, but you can't prohibit others from doing it just because you don't want to do it.

Nice use of the word "mundane," by the way...................
