The right to marriage doesn't need to be explained.

Gay marriage is basically the same thing as taking Jesus down off the cross and then urinating in his wounds.

Like I said, gay marriage is like urinating on Christ.

Gay marriage is access to the courthouse for a government service - a marriage license. This is a matter of civli rights. There is no compelling governmental reason why consenting adults, who wish to join in a civil union should be barred from this. Couples of the same gender ought to be free to adopt children, share resources in common, devise property to one another as spouses, share pension benefits, file joint tax returns, etc. This is a matter of civil rights, not of church doctrine. No one is asking or expecting that churches change their rules re weddings but this has nothing to do with the right to access to governmental services. We must not maintain two categories of citizens, with one group having full and free access to the courthouse and another group who does not. This is not fair, or just.
