I'm Confused...

I know. What a shock, huh.  Anyway, I just read where a Focus on the Family spokesman at CPAC railed against:

"government [that] has grown way outside its proper sphere by getting into moral and spiritual realms, such as redefining marriage, such as encouraging women to leave their children at home and go into the work force."
But I find this utterly confusing.  How come they do not approve of government getting into moral and spiritual realms by allowing all people to marry, but they INSIST that government get into moral and spiritual realms by PREVENTING all people to marry?   How is one different from the other?  Why is one unacceptable, while the other is mandatory?

Over and over again, we find that when people try to overlay religious beliefs on secular legal and governance practices, the best you can hope for is blatant hypocrisy.  The more common outcome is tyranny...
