One step at a time. Way to go Delaware!)

LOL at the crusader who worries that this brings Delaware one step closer to his dreaded "Marriage Equality" bugaboo. He should explain how his life would be ruined by marriage equality.

Government civil marriage has nothing to do with religion whatsoever. Separation of religion and government is a Federal Constitutional mandate.

Civil marriage records kept by the county courthouse is what this is all about. A civil marriage license is issued and registered, then Judges and Justices of the Peace can perform marriages without discriminating against the civil rights of chosen people or disturbing churches.

The new laws do not affect Holy Matrimony as perfomed by Churches in any way, shape, or form. Gays have been marrying in gay and gay/friendly churches, temples, and synogogues for decades, and it hasn't affected straight people's marriages one iota in all these years.

Interesting. With so many corporations being registered in Delaware, doesn't this mean that the home office can no longer discriminate? And if the home office doesn't discriminate, can it be long before non-discrimination is adopted company-wide?
