“Now, it seems, the 'religious right' thinks they own the word marriage. But, it's not about religion. Marriage is a civil contract that affords certain rights and privileges under the law. If marriage were about religion, we would go to the church to obtain a marriage license and not to our county clerk's office, wouldn't we? If someone chooses to make marriage be a part of his or her personal religious doctrine, that's fine. But don't assume it's about religion for everyone.”
