You say "I do" when I say you do, or something like that. . .

Now the House Republicans are maundering on about the sanctity of marriage. You'd think they had no knowledge of the pre-religion origins of marriage, or the well-documented Biblical history of polygamy with or without concubines, or the marriages between siblings that kept monarchies going for centuries, or the real estate transfers that have been part of marriage-sealed treaties between nations and had nothing whatever to do with any holy mandate to reproduce.

But to give all credit where credit is due, they are getting really quite entertaining when it comes to putting on a pious face while claiming that deity gifted them with the authority to impose strict religion-based "blessings" on those who foolishly cling to the idea of the separation of church and state.
