    Indiana GOP passes law making it a crime for clergy to perform gay weddings

    Indiana GOP passes law making it a crime for clergy to marry gays

    Speaking of ****ting all over religious freedom ... I thought the GOP was all about that, guess not when it comes to gays.

    A successful effort by the Indiana Republican party, which controls the state House and Senate, to legislate the permitted, and banned, practices of Jews, Lutherans, Episcopalians, and other mainstream faiths would appear to fly smack in the face of ongoing religious right efforts to brand the civil rights of gays as a threat to religion. In fact, it is anti-gay bigots who are now threatening to throw mainstream clergy in jail for simply practicing their faith.
    Granted, not the most unbiased source in the world. However, don't you think that a religion should be free to perform a religious ceremony?

    Wow, that sounds almost too crazy to believe. Absolutely terrible if story is as described.

    My feelings too. We'll see if it really is that way.

    It's also in Esquire. Possibly more up the ladder of credibility

    Nothing is too crazy for the Republicans these days. It's like they have a contest to see who can come up with the dumbest idea. the fact that this one may well be unconstitutional is just an added bonus to the lunacy.

    This story is a fabrication for a couple of reasons.

    1. The law has been in effect since the late 90s. The current changes are only to classifications.
    2. The violation is providing false information on the marriage license application. A clergy can perform a same sex marriage ceremony. They just can't try to have the marriage recognized by the state.

    Be wary of sites that do not source the actual bill.

    Or are you claiming that the law that was passed in "the late 90's" is part of the much ballyhooed "JudeoChristian tradition" ?...........

    Eh? You lost me.

    I think the OPs article was written by someone who misinterpreted the bill. I don't think it was malicious. I think they saw ill intent where there was none and they sensationalized something that was actually rather mundane. Unfortunately this misinformation is going to get a lot of gay rights activists heated under the collar and they are going to go spouting off about a non issue.

    Religious freedom is an oxymoron.
