The Supreme Court of the United States of America has now spoken. Same sex marriage licenses are being issued all around the country. Since that decision many states have vowed to find a way to stop issuing marriage licenses all together. Are these publicity stunts to show disdain for the idea of gay marriage? Maybe. However, the idea that states should get out of the business of regulating and granting permission to marry is hardly monopolized by religious fundamentalists. In fact, more and more people from all political backgrounds are beginning to ask the same question. Why does the state have to give anyone permission to marry? Fact is, it doesn’t.
What Unites is greater than what Divides.
