Another reason to keep religion out of marriage laws

According to the pope, the denial of marriages isn't reserved for gays. The Catholic Church is now wanting to exert its authority over straight marriages. According to him, even when it comes to straight marriages, "No one can make a claim to the right to a nuptial ceremony".

That's right. To the Catholic Church, getting married isn't a right. It's a privilege that they should get to bestow as they see fit. Fortunately, America has kept such nonsense out of our laws when it comes to straights, but hypocritically uses religious reasoning to prohibit gay marriages. Living in a country by secular laws, there is no excuse for this.

We should call these kind of laws "Christian-Sharia" laws.
