Marriage

Here's a thought--with marriage equality spreading throughout the nation, conservative religious groups are getting louder about their rights being assailed by the "redefinition" of marriage from their standard of one man-one woman. Since their numbers are shrinking rapidly, and marriage equality will be nationwide before long, perhaps they should come up with a new name for their version. How about one that already exists--Holy Matrimony? (or just Matrimony). That conveys the religious nature of their union, without conflicting with the legal definition of marriage that is being expanded to include same-sex couples. They can also get a legal marriage if they want the government benefits, or not if they want to remain pure to their faith.

That's flipping the equation:)

I'm always aware that all of the conservatives on the Supreme Court are Roman Catholics.

Isn't that essentially how it works in Europe? You have the civil ceremony, and then a religious one, if you so desire? And the two aren't really connected?
