My Ups and Downs about Obama in Members' Lounge Posted February 3, 2009 What are you talking about, man? Almost every state has a ban on gay marriages - it doesn't matter what institution you do it in, if it's not recognized by the state you live in then it's worthless. Ok...that being said, why is everyone pissed off at the church then? Probably because the people that run the states and ban gay marriage are usually conservative Christians? Or something like that. Would be my guess at least.
