    If marriage is a holy union between a man and a woman, and by holy I mean religious, then:     
     
    why are atheists allowed to marry?     
    why are people allowed to marry without any religious ceremony?
     
    If marriage is for children to grow up in a home where they can be cared for by a man and a woman:     
     
    why is divorce legal?
    why isn’t there a movement to make it illegal?
    Isn’t it the biggest threat to marriage?     
    why aren’t people who create children compelled to marry?     
    why aren’t childless married people compelled to create children?     
    why are there so many children in the foster care system?     
    why are divorced parents allowed to keep their children?
     
    Does freedom from religion exist if law abiding citizens are denied equal rights because one religion disagrees with those rights?
    Religion is a protected choice.
     
    IF homosexuality was a religion that believed marriage to be a union between a man and a man or a woman and a woman, would it be protected?
     
    If marriage is a religious union, why does it involve the state at all?
     
    There is no state involvement in a baptism, or a bar or bat mitzvah.
     
    Why is marriage different? What if marriage wasn’t a state issue?
     
    What if all adults were able to join in a civil union or domestic partnership?
     
    And marriage was a religious ceremony held separately by people who practiced religions that believe in it?

  1. I agree with your underlying theme here. I like how you think. Thank you for posting this. Coming from a previously religious background, I can see and empathize with your frustration.
