It should be a loud and not "frowned" upon. It's a human right or at least it was.it shouldn't need to be voted on. It shouldn't even be an issue. But because of the church doesn't except people that are different so the state has forgotten about the constitution "The separation of church and state".

First of all it is not a "human right", it never has been.

Secondly marriage by definition ia formal union of a man and a woman, the definition does not leave room for any ambiguity

It is not a matter regarding separation of church and state. It is merely adhering to the definition of the marriage, why should we condone something which doesn't fall within the definition of marriage, that doesn't make sense. Why change something that has functioned well for so long. Which is why civil unions exist, for gays and lesbians, that is specifically designed for them and the wording is broad enough to encompass the legal union of same sex couples
