"President Bush once said that marriage is a sacred institution and should be reserved for the union of one man and one woman. If this is the case - and most Americans would agree with him on this - then I have to ask: Why is the government at all involved in marrying people?" (ID 23514)

"But I think it's up to a local congregation to determine whether or not a marriage should be blessed of God. And it shouldn't be up to the government." (ID 23515)

"I propose that the government should get out of the business of marrying people and, instead, only give legal status to civil unions." (ID 23516)

"If marriage really is a sacred institution, then why is the government controlling it, especially in a nation that affirms separation of church and state?" (ID 23517)

"From the beginning, there have been some religious leaders who greeted the funding of faith-based social services by government with ambivalence." (ID 23518)

"After-school tutoring programs, care for the elderly, shelters for the homeless, disaster relief work, and a variety of other services would all benefit from government funding." (ID 23519)

"Clinton's successor in the White House, George W. Bush, was committed to expanding government spending for faith-based initiatives." (ID 23520)

"Getting the government to put money into social programs run by religious institutions is a practice that started during the Clinton years, when Bill Clinton advocated the AmeriCorps program." (ID 23521)
