Comment: Government shouldn't be

(See in situ)


Government shouldn't be

Government shouldn't be involved in marriage. Government shouldn't be involved in doctor's licenses either, but that doesn't mean government should be able to deny them to minorities. Fortunately, it doesn't. So let the gays get their marriage licenses. Just saying the government shouldn't be involved in marriage won't go anywhere. Even if it started to gain traction, you'd be attacked for "opposing marriage" by people all across the political spectrum, probably mostly by people who are already married. You'd be about as popular as a candidate proposing that females should have to register for the military draft (BTW, Wikipedia's article on Conscription has an interesting list of countries that do require women to register or actually serve)
