It seems that this should not be an emotional religious issue, but rather a legal issue; after all, marriage is only recognized if first taken out by a legal license. Also, this issue is now at the Federal Supreme Court, thanks to Utah pushing it. Religion and government are not co-joined, but separate in our country. Too much money has already been spent on a legal issue that cannot be defended by religious books, and already ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge. Soon the Utah out-of-state lawyers will admit this publicly - after all none of them have won a case which ruled in favor of what traditional marriage. Sad loss for Utah's tax dollars with a price-tag start of two million dollars. Thankfully Utah County legislatures Saturday remarked that they would flush this SSM issue from their budget having seen the losing battle in California - instead they will concentrate on education and hopefully someday the homeless youth in our state (and sadly, 40% are LBGT youth kicked out from religious homes).

@Cats...Your self description is dead on perfect regarding yourself and the countless other right wing religious fanatics..."Somewhere in time" Wrong. It's 2014! Don't you believe it is about time that you realize this?

This country was founded on Christian beliefs and morality. Homosexuality, and subsequently, gay marriage, flies in the face of both.
John Adams said: "Our constitution was made only for a MORAL and Religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."
You do not have the" right" under to Constitution to marriage. The people of the State of Utah voted by an overwhelming 66% to keep gay marriage out. You are trying to use back door tactics to try to push thru a liberal agenda that the people of Utah don't want. You have your civil unions which give you all the same privileges as marriage without the destroying the sanctity of it. I support traditional marriage.
