Gender has never mattered in marriage...

The Anchoress comments on the recent decision overturning Proposition 8. Gender No Longer Essential to Marriage

My first thought: the churches–any of them who wish to remain able to practice their faith in relative freedom–will have to seriously consider getting out of the business of acting as “duly recognized” agents of the state in legalizing marriages. The alternative will be inevitable lawsuits charging “discrimination” for disallowing church weddings, a diminution of our constitutional right to free worship, and a further emptying of church coffers as settlements and fines are levied.

Time for separation of marriage and State, it would seem.
