No, I'm quite content with just imagining the pope tied to a chair forced to watch while I'm going down on ----oh what was i saying... Well, since churches get tax benefits...I mean, no and there's 6 churches in every shanty town in this country, so I don't see how to enforce this anyway.
They're ahead of you on that front

Before you criticize someone you should walk a mile in their shoes, that way when you do criticize them you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
Of course not. It's ridiculous to think for a moment that any church can or should be forced to marry anyone. It's perfectly legal for a Jew and a Catholic to marry... but most Rabbis and Priests will refuse to perform such a ceremony on religious grounds, and quite frankly that's fine. I guarantee that if SS couples wish a religious ceremony, there are plenty of religious folk who will be willing to perform it.

No, forcing a church to perform a gay marriage violates their religious doctrine and thus violates Separation of Church and State.

Of course not, churches are not forced to perform *ANY* marriages. They don't have to perform interracial marriages now, why would they be forced to perform gay marriages in the future? Anyone who thinks they will be is an idiot.
Of course no one should be forced to perform ceremonies. Each church can decide who and what they want to perform Holy Matrimony. SSM should be legal and eventually will be. Yet, firmly individual churches are within their rights for whatever customs or belief systems they hold within.
