    You have your church where you can hold to those views and practice the weddings as you see fit...but you don't get to impose your religious views upon the rest of society in the realm of law/civil marriage.

    That has been my point all along. We all impose our religious (or lack thereof views) on others in the creation of any law. Somehow we are pretending the system is better than this, but it is what it is.

    Then that was wrong and why he was fired, which has nothing to do with his actually being gay, but rather his inappropriate behavior at work.

    My beliefs in what God wants are no more "invented" than what you or anyone else believes God wants.

    Gay People? Are they all in lock step with each other?
    Everyone who believes in God but disregards his Truth bows their own god. Usually it is ourselves, but often it is ourselves disguised as something other.

This seems to suggest a prejudice, as it wasn't indicative of the % of gays in the population at large, nor of the particular part of the business.
    And under laws that protect unfair treatment based on sexuality, if it could be shown that sexuality was considered in who got hired, fired, or promotions, then there could easily be a legitimate case against such a company.

    My point was that, right now, from the way it seems, sexuality considerations in regards to hiring, firing, and promotions tends to favor heterosexuality, not homosexuality, if it favors any sexuality. This may not be the case in certain companies, but in general, it is true.

    Um, no, that was the difference I was highlighting by contrasting your religious beliefs against the concepts of individual secular rights. It is not a matter of religion vs atheism. Secular is not atheistic.

    Heterosexuals tend to be poorer and younger when they marry, and the most frequent cause of divorce is financial issues. More gay marriages will probably bring the divorce rate down. You're welcome. Now stop mucking about and teach heterosexual kids to use birth control so they don't marry at 19 because they have a baby. Another situation that no homosexual couple has ever found itself in.

    It doesn't matter. God doesn't have standing in American courts.
