    No church, or minister, should be forced to perform a gay marriage ceremony.

    Yeah I know. I think the whole Church of Satan is more a work of performance art than anything else.

    You're probably right. I've only come across one member, and that was on the net. He seemed to be drawn to the power trip angle. Odd bunch.

    Re: What if a Minister refuses to perform a gay wedding ceremony?

    This liberal is going on record saying that the religious freedom for clergy to refuse to perform a same sex marriage, or any other marriage, is far more important than the small infringement on equality such an action by a clergy member would represent. I am unequivocal in my opposition to forcing clergy to marry couples they do not want to marry. I would vigorously oppose any movement to force them to.

    I am an atheist opposed to the spread of religion, and who fully and vigorously supports same sex marriage.

    They won't have to. That is correct. Suppose to is debatable, but regardless, some will.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The notion that clergy will be forced to marry same sex couples is a red herring that the far right leadership is using in order to frighten it's ignorant followers. It is demagoguery with zero substance used to manipulate. Period.
