Gay marriage is only the beginning. Words do have meaning and do have consequences Mr. President to wit:
This morning, the Supreme Court recognized that the Constitution guarantees marriage equality. In doing so, they have reaffirmed that all Americans are entitled to the equal protection of the law; that all people should be treated equally, regardless of who they are or who they love.
Do not think that this stop with gay marriage but all other kinds of marriage band are going to fall now. I do not believe this was an unintentional act either. I think you were fully cognizant of the ramifications of this ruling. That second sentence says it all Mr. President. It will soon be legal to marry anyone or anything you wish and as i warned in a previous post (Obama’s lawyers even said the following during arguments: Religious institutions could be at risk of losing their tax-exempt status due to their beliefs about marriage if the Supreme Court holds that gay couples have a constitutional right to wed, President Obama’s attorney acknowledged to the Supreme Court today. )
So churches I repeat my call. When are you going to drop your NPO status to at least buy some time before you are TOLD you must officiate gay weddings or loose your tax exempt status? How many will capitulate to keep that (inset golem) “preciousss” tax break? The ones that boldly have faith in God and renounce their NPO status and adhere boldly to the Bible are the ones who will flourish….the rest will flounder.
This will put me at odds with some friends I know. I see it this way. If a church doesn’t want to perform a same sex ceremony they shouldn’t have to. They should also not fear reprisals(VERY common right now) from same sex couples either. A new wave of attacks and persecutions are going to fire up. My question is are the militant LGBTQ’s also willing to go after the Mulims for whom homosexuality is more violently opposed? If they are so right where’s the outrage against the Muslims?
