State pressure on churches?

Jordan Fowles has posted a thoughtful reply to my question for Irish Law: why should members of a particular religious faith worry about whether the government allows same-sex marriage? After all, the state wouldn't be dictating to the churches which kinds of marriage they should recognize, right?

Well, maybe wrong. As Jordan points out, it's not easy to keep the realms of church and state entirely separate.
