Actually the problem would still exist, and GLBT people would have no option in the matter. Most churches wouldn't preform same sex marriages. and two people who love each other would be denied the legal contract they desire because the clergy would deny them.
The easiest way to put it is, "If you are against gay marriage, don't marry someone who is the same gender as you." It really is quite simple.
I don't care what adult you choose to marry. Just as I don't care what adult another adult of the same gender chooses to marry. It does not negatively affect my life in the slightest .
The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
Say nothing of my religion. It is known to God and myself alone. Its evidence before the world is to be sought in my life: if it has been honest and dutiful to society the religion which has regulated it cannot be a bad one.
The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits.

If homosexual marriage is a US right, or SHOULD be a US right according to some. Why can't marriage between multiple consenting adults be legal?
