I actually have a fair amount of agreement with that first statement. If the opponents of same-sex marriage want to make a claim that marriage has some special, sacred meaning, and that there is a "higher purpose" to it than could be achieved in a homosexual pairing, then they're talking religion. And that brings up a huge issue with separation of church and state.

I wonder if the SJC responding to those arguments with "Oh. You're right; the state shouldn't be in the marriage business at all. Your marriages won't be legally recognizable as anything more than a civil union either." would point out the hypocrisies inherent in the argument.
