Marriage licenses are government sticking it's nose in. Tax status is government intrusion. Full faith and credit is government sticking it's nose in.
I'm not even against gay marriage, it's just stultifying to refer to it as equal rights or standing against government intrusion. Using those terms suggest nothing more than that the user doesn't understand what they mean.
It's simply amazing that so many people don't understand this.
