I just saw that I’m not supposed to discuss politics in this section.
*I have been thinking about one of the most sensitive issues in the United States today: gay marriage. What would you think about the idea that we Catholics (and other Christians) ought to begin campaigning, not for the banning of gay marriage, but for the abolition of civil marriage licenses altogether. In the final analysis, I am beginning to think that the only way to protect the institution of marriage in a secular society is to remove all references to it in civil law.
Oh, and I don’t mean “civil law” as contrasted with “common law”, but the laws of states in general.*
