Subscribe to RSS - Marriage (including same-sex Marriage)

Marriage is a civil agreement that couples often choose to solemnize with a service in a house of worship. Attempts to ban marriage for same-sex couples are often based on religious rationales – the Bible says it’s wrong, papal dictates condemn it, etc. In a nation with a secular government, such arguments must fail. Laws should not be based on religious tenets, and the rights of individuals should not be curbed because of religious dogma. At the same time, no church can be compelled to sanction or perform a same-sex union.
