Almost there...

Oh this is just perfect. Absolutely perfect. For all those who want marriage as God intended, as written in the bible.

It still just bugs me that Christianity claims marriage as its own, insisting that modern marriage as we know it is the only marriage. Christianty started out believing firmly that celibacy was far more valuable than marriage, and it didn't become a sacrament until medieval times. Marriages were held at the church door rather than inside the church because the church didn't bless marriage. And now for the fundies to be running around defining it legally in the eyes of the state (a state that is supposed to separate chuch and state) as a union between a man and a woman and nothing else because anything else is an abomination in the eyes of god, well, it just chaps my hide.
