Marriage Equality Won but what about Religious Freedom?

Marriage Equality advocates are celebrating all over this country. They are free to marry in all 50 states. That’s the law and we are a land governed by laws. The Supreme Court said it and that makes it so, but what if your religious beliefs conflict with this law? Your religious beliefs should not be compromised by this law. You are still free to believe that marriage is between a man and woman, and as a minister you should not be compelled to perform same sex ceremonies. You also have religious freedom and that has to be respected too, but if you have a business that caters to the public you can not use those beliefs as a means to discriminate. I’m not a psychic but I predict the lower courts are going to be very busy as we navigate between the law of the land and God’s law.

    This is actually WORSE than we think it is. Now that you cannot limit marriage by gender, why would you limit marriage by number? I heard the most foolish rebuttal to that question. The person, obviously a gay marriage supporter, said, “Well that’s a dumb question, because polygamy is ILLEGAL here in America….” He seemed to forget that as recently as five years ago, SO WAS GAY MARRIAGE.

    The dam is burst, there is no turning back. We have arrived at an era where marriage is no longer special, it is “anything goes” whether we like it or not. I mean, if the only standard is “love”, who’s to say you can’t love more than one person? Love a very young person? Love an inanimate object? (That’s not a facetious comment. If you can leave your estate to a cat-as many people have-what’s to stop you from legally entering into a marital contract with one? Next it’ll be a car. I am not joking, this WILL happen if we do not stop this madness.)
