Voting in ten states in the US all affirmed the position in those states on traditional marriage and family issues. The volatility of the issue brought a lot of evangelical Christians to the poll (and, in Ohio, are credited with the Bush win). Should this be a "national" issue, or is it better to remain on the local/state level? Will making a "national" decision infringe on the state's rights or on MY bedroom rights? Does ANYONE (government) have the "authority" to make a marriage except God? NOTE: THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION ON GAY/SODOMY but on the issue of national v state v no policy on "marriage/family". Thank you.
