Bottom line, Marriage is a religious union that is TAXED by the

. . . GOV. By voluntarily buying a marriage license you are subjecting your relationship to be taxed(license fees) & governed by the state laws, and entered a state-created legally binding contract, dictated by state laws (not you) of child support, wage garnishment and asset division, in the event of a divorce, and you have to pay divorce court taxes (filing fees, mediation taxes (fees) on top of attorney fees, etc., .

Marriage licenses didn't exist 100 yrs ago. All marriages in the USA were private, non-taxed (separation of church & state) religious ceremonies.
WHY DO GAYS WANT IN ON marriage-equality-in-taxation, government control and taxation?

Gays already have Equality in social contracts and Wills and Living Wills, but the only obvious reason I can see is, the gay's objective in this 'marriage equality' nonsense is to REMOVE the religious origin of, and definition of marriage, or it is an attack on Christianity in particular, an attempt to suppress, control and define religious Freedom.

The State cannot redefine a religious-originating word's definition, the lawyers are having a hard time getting around this, which is why it never gets much traction, and is nonsense on it's face.
Coerced acceptance in the form of religious suppression or redefinition, or any form of Religious 'control' will never succeed.

Galatians 5:1
It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
