Marriage is a legal term above anything else. Like others have said, a man and a woman can get married without any religious influence whatsoever and will have the same legal benefits as a couple who was married by a church. A religious group will ALWAYS have the right to recognize whatever they chose. I'm pretty sure gay people aren't protesting the Catholic church to let them in. (LOL!) The issue at hand is a civil one and by that definition, has nothing to do with religion. People tend to get way too caught up in the semantics of the term marriage.
Look up wallbuilders.com this guy knows quite a bit about how this country was founded and whar the separation of church and state really meant.
He uses actual documents from the founding fathers.
