Honestly speaking from a neutral standpoint, you cannot separate state & religion in the Prop 8 issue. Literally the argument cannot hold....why? Where do you go to get married? Church. Who is responsible for the marriage of 2 people? A priest/reverend. So if 2 people of the same sex get married, of course other religions will take note and go against it since it strikes a chord. The equality issue may make an argument, but the separation of religion and state is hard to hold up.
