Thanks for staying with us I'm Laura Ingraham in for Bill O'Reilly and -- factor follow up segment tonight as a Supreme Court considers to gay marriage cases.
Some folks are saying that the government should get out of the marriage business altogether.
One of those people is our own doctor keep tableau a psychiatrist and Fox News contributor -- he joins us now.
From Boston OK doc tell us what your diagnosis -- -- -- you saw this whole thing play out -- again.
And I am pummeled.
Not by ads mostly on the pro gay marriage side -- And the culture is isn't is knocking on the door of of American families on this issue and and meanwhile you have this dome on the defense of marriage act and this longstanding understanding that.
A man and a woman together it's good for society it's good to have kids and so we -- all these tax benefits to the -- -- what's what's your take on the.
Here's my take with these cases now reaching the Supreme Court I don't think states.
Nor the federal government should be involved in marriage at all.
We shouldn't be expressing the government shouldn't be expressing a preference for whether two people of any gender get together.
And call themselves married that should be a matter for their religious institutions gatherings of friends.
And then you simply do an agreement financially.
As to what the world will look like if you decide not to be quote unquote married we're not canine.
We're not we're not -- Eagles we don't need to head to town hall where City Hall for a marriage license.
This the government it should never been involved in these personal matters and that's why it's coming back to bite us because frankly Laura.
It's just completely illogical to me and I think highly prejudicial.
That a state or the federal government would say two men can marry but not to women a man.
Three people can be in lot of.
Love that about -- that your -- -- data from -- and I married.
But that's coming what.
It as I would assume it may sound -- some -- -- and -- group is already waiting in line did file their own petition if indeed.
This Don Myers tossed out it looks like it probably will they or prop eight.
They -- arguing that -- if it's not man and woman if that's not traditional.
Why is our love any less valid then to same sex people why I mean I don't really.
Know what argument I think you're right you can make against that -- two -- so why not for -- -- wanted.
-- -- and -- -- -- the Eiffel Tower in France -- try to attack there's some story about that.
And then not backdating is sick of friends or even a liberal friends and like several 100000 people this past weekend marching.
Same sex unions pushed by the socialist government and plant so.
Even for answers turmoil about this issue is state and church and -- that.
We have a very simple formula that we could adopt which is simply this -- governments out of the marriage business.
That should be the case that means no preferential treatment at tax time.
No preferential treatment for married folks buy insurance companies everyone should be treated as an individual you go to across the world of it's good it's.
You owe you nothing today right area I know about -- again -- single with kids you're kind of at the low end of the notables but that's why that -- -- -- the case after I have a that society has determined over -- -- millennia that the marital compact whether -- stunned civilly or with some religious ceremony com Melamed.
That it's it's good right I guess it was good because.
Of the judgment was generally made by the culture maybe that's changed.
That man a woman raising children is a good thing we want apparently a lot more people -- procreation.
It's stability people -- to be married.
I think don't they live longer the doctors either live longer think they suffer from left depression unless loneliness -- -- -- those things that I buried today.
But something made that decision -- I don't hurt Margaret just like they encourage businesses to invest.
To get tax credits if you you know if you invest in certain types of technologies.
-- -- the argument it's good for society we will give tax credits for all sorts of things that we think that the society.
Well people are voting with their feet number one most people get divorced so and in my -- that's right I -- that it'll get them -- well.
Now most people are married their marriage the divorce rate is close to 50% or let it but adding -- second time now apparently got out doctor Avalon such an accident I didn't merit the just like you don't I'm not an expert -- -- -- I shouldn't be -- now know you that you have a lot of good thoughts on this topic because -- that your student of culture and right now the culture is saying number one the divorce rate is skyrocketing never to a doctor Abdullah's office among the top three reasons that people get depressed and anxious and think that they.
Don't much want to -- the ninety's because their marriages are failing.
Thirdly the cultures marching and now they're saying men and men -- -- and -- June 25 men and one woman cry and I think that point the government should say were out of it.
That it is coming out it advice comment until we're done.
We're gonna go to your church go to your temple go to -- polygamous temple where you wanna go -- go do it.
Polygamy back against the kind of background like doctor -- great Pataki thanks a lot.
