    I am willing to bet that you don't know squat about the political/religious hassle that has been going on in the Episcopal Church for the past 50 years -you're just butthurt that individual Christians aren't knuckling down to your demands.

    Knuckling down to my demands? My only demand is that you don't force your religious laws on me and my fellow Americans, and considering that's exactly what the Supreme Court just decided, I don't need you to do anything at all. So keep crying, we've already won.

    As opposed to going against muslim, hindu, buddhist or atheist marriage? I suppose that's an easy position to hold when you think christianity invented marriage and as such must purely be defined by only christians. Luckily we live in America where they have the right to marry, and you have the right to be sour about it.

    I don't know "butthurt" might not be a midge insulting in the context.

    I think your demand is to have the world all to yourself.

    Re: Episcopalians Vote to Allow Gay Marriage in Churches

    Since the Episcopal Church has now decided to extend the "sanctity" of marriage to same sex couples, I wonder how many of the SSM opponents (who think the recent SSM decision by SCOTUS to forbid bans on SSM's infringes on *their* religious freedom) will now oppose such bans because they infringe on the Episcopalians right to express *their* religious beliefs by marrying same sex couples

    My guess is "exactly zero"

    More christian victimhood complex. Yes, you saw right through me. I didn't mean equal rights, I meant a holocaust for christians.

    The hyperbole doesn't serve you well here.

    sounds like it to me.

    come from those that preach tolerance and acceptance this is I think the opposite of that.

    Well, there you go. One guy said:

    “Churches that lobby to have freedoms and rights taken away from ANYONE should absolutely have their 501(c)3 status revoked"

    means the "pink mafia" is after you Christians and it's just a matter of time before the pink mafia achieves its goals. BE AFRAID OF TEH GAYS!

    LOL.
