Church or State?

Just something to think about . . .

There are some who are calling the state to get out of the marriage business and leave it to the religious institutions to define and regulate.

At the time of the Reformation, it was the opposite: Luther was calling on the Church to stop regulating marriage and let the state do it. Why? The Roman Church was regulating marriage and had so many restrictions on it.

I'm not saying we should follow Luther and I'm not saying which is better. Just pointing out how greatly things have changed . . .
