Comment: all governments should be out of the marriage question.

(See in situ)

all governments should be out of the marriage question.

It is not a state function. There was a time when only churches dealt with marriage and they determined what it was. For 100 years or so ago for health reasons they claimed that the state would protect us if we knew more about our spouses and we did health testing and you had to get a license to get married. When the goverment is involved in the liscencing of marriage they can now because they give the parents the license to marry take away the kids from the parents and they know more about the spouses and put that information in a database and they put the information from the health testing on you in a database. Know they put the information you gave them for your license and your license in a database. This if a very good reason for governments getting out of the marriage business. It is a privacy issue. You do not want a totalitarian government. John Stossel Interviews Ron Paul on Personal Freedom, Drugs, Prostitution and Gay Marriage:
