Rand Paul: Government Should Get Out of the Marriage Business AltogetherSenator Rand Paul

Back in 2011, I read as Tony Jones made the argument civil and religious marriage should be separated. That was back when states were restricting marriage to opposite-sex relationships. Well, now that the shoe is on the other foot, and gay marriage is now legal everywhere, it is interesting to see conservatives taking the same view. I saw the first conservative reference to this in First Things and our research found a surprising openness.

Now, the first Republican speaks to the issue. I expect more. Actually, if I was a betting man, I imagine this will gain significant traction in the days to come.
