    any church that does so violates biblical scriptures.
    Actually Churches have no choice but to follow their parishioners or die. Is that what you are suggesting? That they go down with the ship? Biblical scriptures have been interpreted in different ways since the beginning and it won't stop now.

    I'm in agreement with God that gay marriage is bad. ISIS is apparently in agreement with Muhammad / Allah, who isn't God.

    I'm just glad it's over. Maybe now we will only see a few threads here on gay marriage instead of 20 per week.

    This issue has deserved to become a non-issue for a LONG time now.

    Congrats America!

    But the legal argument is sound. No state interest exists in barring a same-sex couple from signing a legal contract and therefore the equal protection challenge is upheld.
    That's your argument, not Kennedy's. He never considers whether or not a state interest exists.

    Man, the amount of whining about this is just wonderful. What a great week to be an American.

    Go read the bible and get back to me on what it says. I can tell you that there is only one way to read it. the only way to read it differently is to distort what the bible says into something else which is altogether a different biblical issue.

    Tim-
    "Many scholars" is code word for those that agree with your position. Most scholars, from what I've seen, agree with the majority's ruling on this.

    Been there, done that, don't agree with it. Nor do I believe that you have any right to decide how others read or interpret the Bible for their religion. What you are proposing is not freedom of religion, but rather "they should see it my way, the way I see it or they aren't really a religion".
