Only reason of gays not being able to marry is because of wording.. The law states "The union of a man and a woman"
Untill the gay rights activitsts get there wish of changing this, then there will always be this issue.. but this is not what this is about..

As for Church and state.. That is in the government, When in the court of law, you can't bring up religion to protect, serve and uphold the law.. This would be unfair.. Reason being, I could change my religion, Kill my wife because she talked back to me. then say This is what we do in our religion. The law is the law..

Flag burning, "When done in protest" is a right of expression, protest, and assembly.. you cannot ban this because you would be going against the 1st admendment.. I like my free speech.. most people take it for granted..

Without our free speech we would have this..

Start making laws that go against our constitution then we will lose our rights.

You dont have to.... Most places courts dont use a bible anymore. You just have to raise your hand. Plus if they do hand a bible your way you can tell them not on that bible.. they will remove it..

Flag burning is not a right of expression, period. I'm not going to discuss this. It is called creating a public disturbance and should be banned out-right. It is dangerous. It is not freedom of speech. yOu are stretching the rights given to you and abusing them.
