Marriage is Unconstitutional and Illegal

If marriage is ordained by God or its clergy to be between only a man and a woman, then it is unconstitutional. This unconstitutionality is based on the doctrine of the separation of Church and State. No State should codify religious or “sacred” practices.

Marriage between only men and women is illegal because it is the systematic discrimination against gay and lesbian couples. Civil unions are illegal because they are based on the separate but equal doctrines previously deemed unconstitutional.

The solution is to copy many countries throughout the world. These States only licenses and allow Civil Unions no matter the genders of the couples seeking union and only Churches perform marriages. In these countries couples go through two ceremonies–one civil and one religious. In the USA, we could probably agree that a religious Marriage ceremony could fulfill the requirements for a Civil Union. Thus, according to the State all Civil Unions have the same rights. The bases of “sacred” unions is then left to religions. These practices maintain the separation of Church and State.

Finally, the “majority” does not have the right to impose their values on a “minority” by virtue majority vote. The courts have supported the rights of the individual in spite of the majority vote. This was and still is the whole basis of the civil rights movement.
