And this is in another country. If we threaten to harm someone, we can be charged with a crime here too. But their laws are different than ours. They can be arrested for many different things than we can here in our country. But it comes down to the fact that there are stories about these priests using force against homosexuals and their supporters already so it is not an "idle" threat. If the threat is considered serious in this country, a person can be arrested for it.

Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
I am of the opinion of 5 or less... it has already passed in my home state of Massachusetts, and they JUST passed it here in France (fun protests!).
I think there will be some states that will take a long time to come around, but if more presidents come out in being in favor of same-sex marriage, and more people come out in support then I think it could become legal nation-wide in less than 5 years.
The question is will it only be left to the states? Then the question becomes how long will it take a state like Alabama or Texas to approve same-sex marriage, and that will certainly take a lot longer than 5 years.
What kind of "line of thinking" are you engaging in?
It is almost as if (not saying that you actually are,but it sure is beginning to get the appearance of) you are trying to make excuses for what those priests done.
They committed violent act.That is what they were arrested for,not their beliefs.
In NYC the Son of Sam was arrested for committing murders back in '76.
He wasn't arrested for exercising his 2nd Amendment Rights because he used a .44 handgun to commit them.
