im bored. its friday. so lets stir things up. i dont understand the whole gay marriage and i really dont care one way or the other, but it seems to me its fairly cut and dry. it seems to me that marriage is either a religous or civil "event". if it is a religous event then the gvmnt cant intervene whether you marry someone of the same sex or species. i mean if its ok with your particular religion marry a goat they cant do anything. if its a civil event then they have already passed laws against discriminating against people based on sexual orientation. so why is it filling so much of my paper?
