    The “” website states on it’s “Why Marriage Matters” page, as follows, “Protecting the interests of children is the primary reason that government regulates and licenses marriage in the first instance.” I believe there is a major element of misinformation which we may be missing here. Marriage is a union defined and instituted by God. The government should not be allowed to require permission in order for us to do something which was instituted by God in the first place. This site says that it is licensed by the government as a “protection” for the children; and yet, there are many cases throughout history which illustrate that just the opposite is true. This licensing by the state in fact implies a sense of “ownership” of the children by the state. The state licenses your marriage, and therefore they gain some say-so over what becomes of its fruits (the children).

    My wife and I were married without a license under what is called a Covenant Wedding Ceremony. It is a lawful ceremony and union, but is still not widely recognized by the (de facto) state of North Carolina. To us, we would rather not invite the state into our relationship, but allow our covenant to stand on it’s own between myself, my wife, and God. I would encourage the readers here to seek out more information concerning marriage to confirm what I am saying. I would like to leave you with a few resources so that you can do your own research. Most of the resources can be found in and at the end of the following blog post:

    Our Voter Lookup Tool lets you check on whether your friends and family are registered to vote, and our Voter Registration Tool lets you fill out a voter registration form for your state online, print it, sign it, and mail it in. Both are very simple to download and very easy to use.

    To add these tools to your website:

    1. Go to and click on

    2. Fill out the form. This will generate customized links and HTML code for your organization.

    3. Give the links and code to your webmaster to upload to your webpage.
