    If you're not going to write in readable English, then please don't bother addressing me. I'm not even going to try to read the incomprehensible garbage such as you've been writing this evening.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Should those responding to a poll be forced to structure their answers with qualifiers that have little to do with the question?

    My thoughts TK.
    Who has ever suggested that this should be done?

    If it ever happened I missed it.

    If you have never read the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution you might want to spend a little time on that.

    That should tell you all that you need to know.

    How would you force them to do this? It would be a violation of the 1st Amendment.

    I'd be interested to hear your story about how this could be done.

    As though extending beyond the traditional gender barrier on a civil marriage somehow negates the 1st amendment.

    correct correct correct and correct!


    this is an irrational fear based on nothing but pure conspiracy theory
    the constitution isnt going anywhere and "churches" are protected and have the right to discriminate . . and its a right the super vast majority support

    this mentally inane dishonest fear tactic doesn't work on anybody educated, honest and or objective on this subject

    its complete nonsense that just gets laughed at

    not to mention this has a NEW fear, based on equal rights for gays is even more retarded . . why? because the church has been discriminating against gender, religion, race and sexual orientation WAAAAAAAAY before equal rights started winning for gays. Where was the illogical fear before this since churches were already turning away straights, blacks people they felt was not religious enough etc etc etc

    was the church forced to marry blacks when minorities got equal rights? were they forced to marry woman they didnt want to when woman got equal rights? have they ever been forced to marry a different religion they didnt want to? have they ever been forced to marry ever in current american times? nooooooooope lol

    anybody that would try would completely fail


    Just last summer a black couple was denied a marriage at thier very own church, it was southern church and mostly white . . . it made news . . . it was talked about here . . . . . legally? NOTHING happened because they have every right

    friends of mine that are STRAIGHT and WHITE and CHRISTIAN had to try FIVE churches before one accept them . . the were both christian but getting married under the womans exact religion, they wouldn't do it because of him . . . eventually the one that would said they had to wait 6 months he had to official proclaim that religion his and take classes . . .

    where is the fear for the MILLIONS of those people that were LEGALLY discriminated against lol

    its nonsense that holds no weight and if its a new fear its even more of an illogical waste
    thinking this is a concern is pure . . . .

    What do you call a church that demands 10% of your income to be a member?
    [/Q



    I believe that Jesus Christ said a few words about churches like that.

    I hate the whole "left leaning" or "right leaning" but no "somewhere in the middle" or "other" option for polls like this.

    I voted "left leaning" based on my stance regarding SSM.
