I read this over a couple of times but I'm not seeing how it explains why churches won't be required to marry same sex couples, if it is written into law. The government is already blocking funds for Catholic institutions because they don't want to give out birth control. I believe even if there isn't government enforcement, there will be pressure on all religious institutions to marry gay couples. If that isn't the case, I would support (vote for) gay marriage but I'd have to trust that it is first.
