Maggie endorses a lie about govt. nature, there will be CONSequences

by Jeremy Hooper
Maggie-Gallagher"Gay marriage is not an increase in liberty; it is a government takeover of an institution that government did not create and should not redefine.

When the government endorses a lie about human nature, there will be consequences.
"

- Maggie Gallagher, writing an Opposing View column for USA Today

Civil marriage equality = government. Period.

If Maggie thinks marriage had been subjected to government takeover, then she and every single married person who agrees with her needs to return the marriage license that he or she obtained from the state. Until this happens, the ones who will be lying about the institution are the ones who seek both religious and government exclusion (the latter primarily based on the former), not those who recognize the clear and present separation between personal faith and public policy!
