    Where are all these other "left-yes" votes coming from? More than 20 in the poll, but just one named poster.
    Someone's punking the poll, I'm guessing. 20 is a pretty lame effort thought. I had, probably, 300 fake votes in my Palin poll. I have to appreciate that commitment.

    No, at least not now. You have to respect the rights of the church.

    3.) then there remains nothing in the way of forcing the same thing on churches and ministers.

    1.) well since this has factually never happened no line was crossed. Please stick to facts and not made up fantasies BUT thank you for answering and saying you think its possible even though your reasoning is based on a lie.

    2.) the line has factually NEVER been crossed, repeating the lie that it has wont make it true.

    3.) yes theres nothing in the way except the constitution, rights, laws, and countless cases of court precedence and the 1000s or occurrences of legal church discrimption that probably happen a day in this country. LOL

    just in your opinion the governments "lack of restraint", peoples authoritarian behavior, equal rights for gays all of the above or other things?

    Churches shouldn't be forced to do anything they don't want to do.

    I think minimal standards should be enforced at least, such as building codes, fire safety, not advocating murder, etc

    I agree 100% with one possible exception.

    I think a good many should be investigated and possibly forced to start paying taxes.
    Other than that...they should have 100% freedom to be as biased, ignorant, and discriminatory as desired.

    Re: Should churches be forced to perform gay marriages?

    If God [or his Son] came down and announced to the entire world that SSM should be legal and performed in all churches, then OK.

    Otherwise, "are you serious"
