Why do people use the bible to justify why same-sex marriage should be illegal?
And why does it work?
For one we have a seperation of Church and State, or so i thought. You can’t impose your beliefs or “Family Values” onto a society if you are in government. And if people who use the bible really cared about protecting the “sanctity of marriage” then shouldn’t they focus their efforts on outlawing divorce?
The biggest reason is not religious. The gov’t doesn’t want same sex marriage legal because it
will cut tax funds and cost more in employee benefits. That’s why the feds recognize civil unions
except when it comes to monetary reasons. No qualifying for family in taxes or insurance.
