A marriage is a social contract by law. Essentially, it allows two people to be treated as one interchangeable person. That gender of the participants should have no bearing on how the government recognizes that contract. Churches shouldn't be compelled to perform religious ceremonies that are proscribed by their dogma. The drama is unnecessary.
Oh, thou clear spirit, of thy fire thou madest me, and like a true child of fire, I breathe it back to thee.
