It's not the state's job to tell others who can be married and to reproduce.

I'm so glad I'm an Atheist so that I can make up my own opinions and just leave people to their own business.

I want to rip off your superstitions and make passionate sense to you

The really frustrating hypocrisy, among numerous obviously, is that this is being propagated mainly by the Republican party who is constantly pushing for LESS government but in this case they want MORE...I just do not understand.

LOL! I don't know why I didn't think of that. Although some of them might think that even a Satanist is no match for their magic underwear. And yes... that is TRUE. They wear an undergarment that they believe somehow protects them from what I don't know. They are not allowed to wear it though unless they've earned "Temple Rights". In order to earn those rights they have to give them 10% of their salary. One Mormon told me that they aren't required to pay the tithing if they can't or simply choose not to they're not kicked out of the Church but they simply don't get Temple Rights if they don't. Also I was told that those with Temple Rights have a certain number of kids. I never could confirm that because if you ask them directly they're vague about it and I was never sure if the number of kids they had to have was 3 or 5. But there are some other weird requirements they have for the Temple Rights and certain things they are allowed and not allowed to do once they have them.

I think more specifically it's the Mormon Church that's behind it. I know they were the largest contributors to prop 8 and prop 102.

They are also one of the major supporters of the Boy Scouts of America which does not admit gays, atheists or agnostics...you make a valid point.
