“Marriage is a sacrament of Faith. Granting this kind of authority to the state is sacrilegious.”
No, it is a civil as well as a religious institution. With many legal ramifications relating to criminal law, legal obligations for dependents, and inheritance.
You’re incorrect in dismissing my assertion which is factually and historically correct.
I have no problem with civil contracts as long as those contracts do not oblige third parties into the service of those engaged in the contract. Think about the Christian photographer that is persecuted by the state for refusing to record a homosexual event that, allegedly in the opinion of the photographer, masquerades as the sacrament of marriage.
Let’s say a homosexual couple decides to purchase a home and throw a party about their joint obligation — should they have the right to sue a photographer that refuses to videotape their party?
