"[A gay president] would be bothersome to me personally because I consider it immoral.[...]

Marriage is a religious institution. The federal government has no business redefining what it is. Governments should not be in the business of promoting a behavior that's proven to be destructive to our society."

--Sen. Jim Demint, talking to Bloomberg News, warning complacent Americans about the threat posed by gay and lesbian presidents

If marriage is a religious institution which the government should not be involved in, then I would like to propose to Mr DeMint that any federal or state benefits accruing to married couples should be terminated immediately. I mean, that sounds like a classic church/state separation problem to me.
