The Religious Argument Against SSM Is A Failure

Whenever the issue of gay marriage comes up, one of the most common argument against it is the religious argument.
The argument goes something like this: Since God is the Creator of marriage, only God can decide who is to be marred or not. As the Bible condemns homosexuality, it is clear that marriage can be between one man, and one woman only.
The problem is this: People who use this argument must prove that God exists before their argument can become valid.
If you are arguing that God created marriage, you need to provide facts to back that claim up - and that doesn't mean the Bible. It means that you must prove that God exists, in order to prove that God created marriage, which is your argument. If you cannot prove the existence of God, your argument is invalid and must be dismissed.
In my opinion, there can be no religious argument in opposition to same sex marriage as God plays a central part to that argument. And as I have said, without proof of the existence of God, there can be no valid argument.
