I'll be joining a panel discussion at Huffington Post Live at 11:10 a.m. this morning (that's 8:10 a.m. for you West Coasters) that asks the question, "Should Religious and Civil Marriages Be Separate?" Here's their summary:

As gay marriage laws change, some conservative pastors say they won't perform any type of civil marriage. Even liberal clergy are asking if civil and religious unions should be explicitly distinct. Does marriage need a separation of church and state?

I don't know if we'll get into any sort of libertarian discussion about whether marriage should be separated from the state entirely, but we'll see. Tune in here.
