    The New York law makes it clear no church is required to preform same-sex marriages. As I remember, anyone wishing to marry[or any rite or ritual] through the catholic church has to meet with the priest and if the priest sees there is a problem in the relationship, he can reject marrying the couple.

    Somehow I don't think they'll listen to a fallen Catholic agnostic, even if that person does largely agree with the rest of their views....heh, heh...

    Yes, but that very same priest will have no problem taking their offering in the collection plate at Sunday service....

    Meanwhile Rome burns.

    This is a news section, and things like this are news. So yes, we will have a headline every time it happens.

After all, if you are a homosexual you are not an ethnic minority, just a group of people wanting to get married....Other than the couples themselves, religious zelots, or future divorce attorneys, we have more important issues.

    I tend to think that the legalization of gay marriage is one of the more important issues. Thats fine if you really dont care but I definitely want to hear about each and every state that legalizes gay marriage.

    That's because most New Yorkers are IDIOTS. The sensible ones are the ones who don't vote for Democrats or Liberal Republicans.
