    Laffing, no I was just pointing out the ONLY people claiming a same sex marriage law would force churches to do the marriage are firmly stuck on the 'conservative' side of our political spectrum. When I ask just who on the left side was considering this you can't name anyone.

    just some more knee jerk right wing babble with absolutely nothing to back it up...

    As if your spelling isn't bad enough, you throw on top of it poor logic and faulty assumptions. Great job.

    By forced, I mean anything that the govt could use to penalize churches for failing to performing the ceremonies, including removing tax exempt status if they don't, etc.
    Skipping to the end of the thread and I'm sure this has been said eight zillion times already, but that would be in violation of the barrier between church and state.

    And you would be wrong.

    Absolutely not. Churches should have the right to freely decide who they'll allow to get married there.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    dance away but the fact remains you have NO evidence anyone on the left wants to force Churches to perform SSMs, it is just the radical right who keeps claiming that.
