    2.) religious freedom is exactly the reason why its silly to believe churches will be forced, they wont because of religious freedom
    but to speak more directly of your comment, no freedom works like you just stated . . .speech, religions etc

    if facts bother you dont ask the question.
    if you disagree with the facts please list the business that were FORCED to participate in gay weddings or go out of business?
    you will find you cant list any. . . .not ONE . . what you will find is some people that BROKE THE LAW and VIOLATED rights, laws and ordinances . . . .

    churches, as facts prove because i bet 1000+ did so just today. . . are NOT violating any laws, or violating rights, laws or ordinances by denying religious marriage . . .

    HUGE difference, facts and reality are important
    let me know if theres anythign else i can help with

    Well, guy, if you can't demonstrate how religious wedding ceremonies have been required to abide by similar protections for other protected groups, your suspicions are irrational.

    1.) what is the militant gay lobby? seems you are including everybody in the gay lobby which is the fast majority of the country and you would be wrong
    2.) not unless the constitution is amended

    a link from the a blaze blog further shows how thinking the constitution is going to change i.e. churches will be forced to marry is even more silly. Thank you for posting it.

    let us know when you have somethign rational that supports the silly notion churches will be forced.

    Re: Do you believe the idea of churches being forced to marry people is likely/ration

    Just a few decades ago, the idea that anyone would even consider the idea of “same sex marriage” was rightly seen as absurd. It was clearly understood what marriage whats, just as it was clearly understood what a sick, immoral perversion homosexuality was, and nobody would even have suggested that one had any place in the other.

    Not five years ago, even those who were so sick as to think that there could be any such thing as “same sex marriage”, would certain;y not have argued for forcing anyone who still held to any decent moral values to have anything to do with it.

    Now, we are at the point where we will allow the power of government to force those in private businesses onto this evil, against there rightful moral objections. There is really no significant line left to cross, to force churches into this evil as well.

    Unless this sick trend is reversed, we will live to see the force of government used to force churches to perform immoral homosexual mockeries of weddings; within the next few years at most.
    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.

    also id say the vast majority of religious people dont follow all thier beliefs. i certainly dont, i have no problem admitting that nor would i ever (follow them all)
    If a Christian misses a few minor details such as procedures on handling communion, that's a trivial matter to me.
    If a Christian misses something fundamental such as "love thy neighbor as thyself," it's not. And we have the right to call him out on that.

    Don't even try the "no true Christian" fallacy. If you believe that Jesus is the Messiah, you are a Christian, pure and simple.

    How does it make you feel to know that this attitude is literally dying out?
