Rob, while I know this is satire (and very clever satire), marriage, under civil law, in the eyes of the government, is not a sacred union. It is a civil contract. Religious bodies declare things sacred and their declaration has no force of law. Governments can declare something legal, but not sacred, at least the United States government cannot.

This distinction is not made very often or very well by those of us who advocate for marriage equality. Marriage in the eyes of the government is not a religious matter. And while some religious bodies insist it is not a government matter, they are mistaken.

Anne Romney has a message for NOM and all its NOMnuts:

This is hard. Stop it. Just stop it.

revchicoucc, the position of the National Marriage Organization is that marriage is inherently religious, was ordained by God when He created the earth 6000 years ago, and governments cannot define it, merely recognize it as it was intended.

Rob, I love these satiric ads. Very well done!
