If you look at it just from a legal standpoint there is nothing to argue. You can argue from a moral standpoint. You can say, ‘morally, I don’t like the idea of gay marriage’ because your church teaches you a certain thing. That’s fine. And we’re not asking anybody, or forcing churches to perform ceremonies. We’re not asking anybody to go outside of their religious beliefs. But marriage is not a religious right. It is a civil right. That is provided by the government. A church does not have a right to marry someone—except that it is given the right by the government. The government issues marriage licenses. The government decides who gets married and who doesn’t.

This is too hilarious for me not to share. I am currently reading this interesting (to me, at least) interview with the New Girl showrunners, Liz Meriwether, Brett Baer, and David Finkel, which covers a lot of different topics. My favorite part is when they were asked what the most absurd note (from the network) they had received during their careers.
“Finkel: Last year I had a long conversation with our (awesome) Broadcast Standards and Practices person. The conversation went thusly:
BS&P: I’m not sure what this is, but I’m pretty sure you can’t say “B-Hole.” What does it stand for?
BS&P: That’s what I thought. You can’t say that. We’re not comfortable with that.
Me: What can we say? Can we say A-hole?
BS&P: No. No. How about “butthole?” I’d be comfortable with that.
Me: (giggling) So we’re good with “butthole” but not “b-hole”?
BS&P: (giggling) Yes.
Sometimes I love this job.”
