The government can define marriage however they want and the Christian church should follow what the Bible says on the subject. The problem that may arise is if the government ever starts trying to strongarm the church into going against the Bible.
    Separation of church and state would immediately go into effect here. There are so many places to get a secular marriage, I just don't see how the government would ever think it's a good idea to try and strong arm the church into anything...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    The idea that government will try to force churches to marry people is a boogeyman, and always will be.

    A Liberal government (if we ever get a predominantly one) would most certainly try. It would take a minor miracle for them to succeed, but they would most certainly try.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    No different then a predominantly conservative government trying to constitutionally ban gay marriage and abortions.(which was attempted).

    There is enough tricks with each party to keep the other honest(honest being relative....very relative....EXTREMELY relative). With todays politics its difficult to believe one party could take that much control. Its important to keep in mind that, by and large, Americans actually support a bi-partisan government. Its one thing that gives me hope in this country is that we are in favor of forcing compromises.
