Gay Marriage: It's None of Your Business 

Let's assume there are two lesbians living in Santa Monica, California. We don't know them. We've never seen them. For all practical purposes, they don't exist for us.

Now let's assume that they decide to get married, and they tie the knot in California. We still don't know them.

We still have never seen them. So far as we know, they still don't even exist. Whether they just live together or get married, neither their existence nor their marital status affects us.

That being the case, what the heck business is it of ours what they do?

Charley Reese tackles the issue of gay marriage in this week's Rant.
