I posted last week something from the archives re my views on issues of marriage and the State, specifically as regards the current tug of war over definitions of marriage, Prop 8 and all the rest.
Here's someone (with no religious POV, as far as I know) who agrees with me- the only way out of this cultural quagmire is to get the State out of the "marriage" business altogether.
"While I don’t think that this is an easy path to adopt, it’s going to be the eventual solution. Not only does it take government out of people’s private lives, it also means an end to a divisive and essentially meaningless debate — and it protects houses of faith and ends a potential government interference in matters of religion."
