Sacred Institutions

Just a quick note: MoveOn is running a petition on the marriage vote coming up tomorrow. The vote would reword the law to define marriage as being solely between a man and a woman. You can sign the petition here: http://www.moveon.org/unitednotdivided/

I realize I’m preaching to the choir here, but it really pisses me off that Bush is arguing that allowing everybody to get married would make marriage a hollow business contract instead of a sacred bond. Can someone please explain to me how allowing marriage for people who love each other and want to commit to each other permanently makes it a sham or a business contract? I would think the opposite: by reserving marriage for people who share your political and sexual views, you make it a hollow act.
