    Well you see that is one of the major problems because if gays get to marry in a civil ceremony the next thing they will be fighting for is to be married in a church. Remember my left wing friend its a step by step process to get gays accepted as a suitable alternative life style...........You give and inch they want a mile.

    I'm sure that there will be some who will claim discrimination against churches that they aren't allowed to wed at. However, I don't think it will be significant enough to amount to anything. Besides, it's not as if the government can step in and force religions to allow gays to marry at their churches.

    Not in most you can't and for sure not in mine. We welcome you to our church but you understand when gays engage in illicit sex its a mortal sin just like it is for straight people who do it. We are taught to love the sinner and hate the sin. I personally don't judge anyone though. God will do that on the day of judgment and I don't believe that day is far away.

    I think most gay people want equal rights and are willing to call it a civil union but there are a few loud militant gayd and a bunch of "Feel good" liberals that are pushing the issue.

    The sad thing about religion is it puts the mere words in a book above the thoughts, feeling, and being of a real person...

    In more churches than you think. I will have a religious marriage, and there's nothing you can do to stop that.

    We do want equal rights, and that includes marriage, plan and simple.
