    The ACLU is pro first amendment.

    How long do you think it's going to be before they start harassing ministers for refusing to perform gay wedding ceremonies?

    You forgot the word "liberal."

    Bull. Give one example where the ACLU has opposed a church or anyone from putting a nativity scene on church or private property.

    Who's to say they won't take the side of the minister? After all freedom of religion is a civil right.

    Right about never. This is nothing but a strawman and a despicable attempt by the right to scare morons. Are you one of the demagogues or one of the morons?

    The case law on this is clear and I don't think there is anyone that would seriously argue that forcing a church to perform a ceremony would not interfere with freedom of religion. Look at the poll, not one person has answered that they would support your strawman.

    Got any examples of this perversion or changing of churches? Cuz I don't think it is happening.

    this is a form of indirect form of racism , imagine the same situation with afro-amaricans or a certain group of christianity
    he fulfills a job that is responsible for all the people in his country and by this act he does not take the people in consideration that aperently voted for gay marriage ( other wise we would not discuss this topic ) there would be no problem to say no if the voters voted against gay marriage
