Lois Moreno needs to rethink her objection to same-sex marriage. She claims it is the government that is violating the separation of church and state. This is totally false.

Marriage might be a sacrament in certain churches but in the USA, marriage is a civil contract that requires a government license. Religionists who try and push their religious definition of marriage on the country are violating the separation of church and state.

Moreno is another example of a religious person trying to push her religion beliefs and bigotry on everyone else in violation of the U.S. Constitution. All the flag waving and Bible quoting will not change the fact that same-sex marriage is constitutional and therefore is legal despite unconstitutional bans by states.

These bans will eventually be overturned by the Supreme Court, and we will look back in shame on those who fought to make discrimination legal.
