I would say that religions are heavily influenced by the dominant culture.
I know that there are many who oppose gay marriage on religious grounds, but the fact is that we don’t let particular religious sects or even the dominant religion dictate other civil policies, and they certainly shouldn’t have as much sway as they do with marriage.
And as for letting religious people maintain the sanctity of their ritual — there are religious gays and lesbians, too. So they can’t get a religious marriage in the churches they belong to because other churches oppose it? This makes no sense. And for those who aren’t religious anyway — they’re not trying to get married in churches and be sanctified by religious officials anyway. What is the problem with calling all these unions marriages? IMO it is no different than saying that interracial couples shouldn’t be marrying (or should call their marriages something else) because some religious groups oppose it.plk edited this message on 06/02/2009 9:56PM
