Gaddy said it.

QFT.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The head of the national Interfaith Alliance says people of faith should engage in civil dialogue about gay marriage, but government should rely on the U.S. Constitution -- not religion -- in deciding who can marry.

The Rev. C. Welton Gaddy says marriage is a legal issue in the United States and only government can grant a marriage license.

Gaddy spoke Friday at Sunstone, an annual forum for Mormon culture and academic study in Salt Lake City.

Gaddy commended church goers who support gay marriage, but remain active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The church opposes gay marriage and has worked against marriage equality legislation nationwide.

Gaddy says laws legalizing gay marriage doesn't prohibit churches from practicing their beliefs.

Gaddy should be more specific: Only the state government can grant a marriage license.
