    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
    Actually, priests and churches do not have to marry blacks or any one else they chose not to.

    Priests are not ministers. There is a separation of church and state. Neither of those comments addresses my point or contradicts anything I said. Churches, synagogs, priests, ministers, are under no obligation to marry any one.

    There are many Christian churches that deem homosexuality perverse. It is in the Bible.

    The government cannot intrude upon religion. It may not impose itself upon religion without repercussions.

    if there is a law for something then no minister can go against this , so if gay marriage is accepted in the law then there is clearly a problem ( imagine he is the only person who can marry people then the couple wont get married at all ? even with the law on there side ?

    Secular government cannot impose upon Christianity.

    This is what I mean about ACLU perversion, Redress. I suspect the ACLU, which is within the government, will force traditional Christian churches to marry homosexuals because it's now "legal".

    They will not stop pushing Christians.

    There is no law saying a priest, minister, church has to marry any one.

    They will argue that churches cannot prevent people from exercising their "fundamental right" to marry.
    Or something.

    you're confused.

    Just because a law says gay marriage is legal someplace, that law does not REQUIRE religious officials in any organized (or non organized) religion to perform said marriage. That's what the Justice of the Peace is for.

    If it's not against the law to **** a sheep, meaning it is therefore legal, does that mean you are required to do it?

    Of course you know that some in the gay community are already trying to get it designated as a hate crime if a minister gets behind the pulpit and preaches against homosexuality.
