The paradox of gay marriage rallies

Give this one a thought… it’s giving me pause these days:

At gay marriage rallies – rallies in support of gay marriage – people chant “separation of church and state.” Yet they are attempting to attain the right to marriage. The government gives ministers (of churches) the right to preside over marriage ceremonies and legitimate the state contract (“by the power vested in me by the state of….” for example) – the ultimate entanglement of church and state.

So the paradox is: You can either have the separation of church and state or you can have marriage, but as it stands right now, you may not have both – in fact, you cannot have both because the Doctor is not here to fix the space-time continuum rip that would happen from bridging a paradox of this magnitude.
