MARRIAGE: Civil law and religion don’t mix

Regarding the myriad articles and letters about gay marriage in Washington, I have not seen this perspective: As a heterosexual Christian woman, I have never been more proud to live in Washington and am relieved and thrilled that many lawmakers in Washington understand that specific religious beliefs have no place in civil law.

No matter what you believe your Bible says about being gay, no matter how much of an abomination you believe being gay is based on your religion, no matter how strongly you oppose gay marriage based on your church’s teachings, your Bible, your religious beliefs and your definition of marriage based on your church doctrine have no place and no authority in our civil laws.

End of story.
