Separating Civil Marriage from the Sacrament of Marriage

The Houston Chronicle has an excellent editoral about completely separating the state and religious functions of marriage from each other, based on none other than the writings of C.S. Lewis. I really think this is the best way to handle marriage, gay and straight, so that the sacrament of marriage can be defined by individual religious organizations without forcing that view on anyone else.

I was going to post this but you saw it first and did it better. ;) I think separating the sacrament from the civil arrangement would be the best possible solution to a number of problems.
