I am against ALL marriage, as I am an atheist, and think that any relationship between two people is not the business of the state.

Marriage is by nature between one man and one woman. It is designed and ordained thus by God.

exactly!! Marriage (one man one woman) was designed by God. We have no right to redefine marriage, what God has already put in place.

Marriage isn't a solely Christian institution, you know. People of other religions get married. Atheists get married. In some states and countries, gay people can already get married. Regardless of religion. Religion is not supposed to be a factor in government decisions, and it shouldn't be in this one any more than it is in any others.

Exactly. If we're going to play by that game, Christians are the only ones that should get married. Which is bull. Separation of Church and State is a thing for a reason.

Marriage has been around long before Christians. Marriage was created when Adam and Eve were created by God. You can take religion or whatever you like out of it, but it still is there. Christianity did not exist until after Christ died on the cross, so the Christian argument is not valid. Separation of Church and State is a red herring as well. Look at how and why marriage was instituted, then go from there. One can not simply take today's view and apply to a principle that has been around thousands of years before them. You can not 'reinvent' something that has already been. On a simpler note, you can not take a car and tell everyone that it's now called a bike. As hard as you try it still is a car.

A.) God isn't real.

B.) Even if he was, it wouldn't matter because some people don't believe in him.

C.) Here in America it is illegal for laws to be influenced or created in favor of one religion.

Marriage is between 1 man & 1 woman. It is Adam & Eve not Adam & Even!
