Tea For Two

If a government is large enough to give you everything what you want

it is large enough to take everything you have.

-Davy Crockett

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance,

and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Is marriage in violation of the separation of church and state?
It's Christmas time again and we are reminded by all the stories of forbidden nativity scenes, Christmas trees and other signs of what Christmas actually stands for, under the guise of separation of church and state.
This year simultaneously we have stories of government interfering with a solely religious function of marriage. The government originally got into the marriage business by issuing a license for the purpose of stopping interracial marriages. The history of marriage traditionally has never been a function of the state. Marriage was first performed by God himself when he gave Eve to Adam. Why is it that our courts of today cannot see that marriage is the most obvious violation of what they call the separation of church and state?
Wouldn't it be easier if the government just got out the marriage business and returned it all to the church? Different religions have different rules and regulations about marriage, and those with no religion have their own ideas of what marriage should be.

    The courts have turned the First Amendment around, concerning religion, to exactly the opposite of what it was meant to be. The Constitution is designed to keep the government out of religion not religion out of the government.
