Tempest in a Teapot

The U.S. Constitution mandates the separation of Church and State. As marriage is a religious sacrament--a contract between humans and God, the States have no justification for marrying anybody! Though they are free to provide Civil Union Status to any couple whom State Law permits to enter into a contract.
And despite California's Proposition 8, religions remain free under the constitution to marry whomever they wish.

Defusing the conflict in the Middle East

The Middle East conflict can be readily defused if Saudi Arabia and Iran would loan or give Palestine the necessary capital with which to build up light industry. With full employment, Palestine's problems would vanish.
But, SA and Iran much prefer their divisive policy of let you and him fight, so monies that could give Palestineans a better life are wasted on weaponry.
