    But it's never been that way, it's not even possible for it to be that way. In fact, you don't even want it to be that way, I'm sure you're not out there demanding marriage equality for gays. That's just tyranny of Christianity, something you're apparently all in favor of. You're just a bloody hypocrite, you only care about it when it's *YOUR* side not getting their way. When it's someone you don't like, screw them.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    My thoughts TK.
    No. If: The church collective/body which that ordinator is connected to got together and decided on their stance before a case presented itself. Only IF: That church body is legally and officially recognized as a religious structure.

    However irritating it might be - I still believe a religious body has the right to determine how they perform according to their religious edict. It's not denying someone the ability to get married.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Because it hasn't happened. But for these people, it's just a hop, skip and a jump from "churches forced to perform gay marriages" to "anyone who claims any religious justification for any kind of discrimination."

    This much is certain. Can you imagine....perhaps some of them have a pipedream to go back to marriage where the women was submissive to her husband and remembered her place.

    According to statistics half of them can't even stay married...some "sacred institution". Won't it be funny if more gays don't get divorced than straights.

    Fear mongering based upon old testament.
    I always ask those types, please provide an example of where Jesus condemned homosexuality. He did not.
    I am a Christian and (SSM) Same Sex Marriage is a basic human right.
