Okay let me rephrase the question so that maybe someone can understand how I hear it better:
"Should black people be allowed to marry?"
"Should people with blond hair be allowed to marry?"
"Should Christians be allowed to marry?"
This is what I'm hearing and it's not right - not right at all! It should not even be a discussion - It's silly to the even ask; yet, it seems to be one of the top discussions of all time.
We Americans have a wonderful Idea: "Separation Between Church and State."
Their has always been a separation between State Marriage and Church Marriage. One still has to get a license to marry wither or not they do it in a
church or in front of a judge - This means the state doesn't recognize
the church as official, they recognize the license.
A church, I believe, should have the right to
turn down any couple they choose to - the "Freedom of Speech" and
"Freedom of Religion" protects that right - It's stupid, but it's their right. Individuals are allowed to discriminate; our government isn't.
I think religious people should stop griping about it and be proud to live under a government that protect
there rights to believe as they wish, but I already know that religious people feel strongly against the
idea, because they feel strongly against gay people, but I've heard
secular, non-religious, atheistic cases against gay marriage, which
really does not compute with me.
I'd like to hear from you all and see what you think on the subject?
