I have no problem with gay people being together. NONE AT ALL. I have no problem with them in a union with each other that gives them the same legal rights to everything other couples have. Just because I do not agree with something does not mean # I hate them, #2 that I am going to picket them, call them names of even preach to them. #3 also does not mean I am judging them. That is up to God and in the end we will all be judged.
The problem I have is when you call it marriage and tell a church they must perform them. A Church follows certain beliefs and this I think will change how churches must conduct weddings. And when a church refuses to perform the wedding they may lose their tax exempt status along with other items.
IMO this is where the Constitution was talking about a Separation of Church & State. Not 10 Commandments on the walls of our Gov building but where the Government rules what the Church does based on their religions beliefs. If you go back in history the Church & State issue was argued because the King ran the Church. The Church was part of the Gov like a 4th branch of Gov and that is why we have a separation of Church & State in the Constitution.
What we have just done is far worse than saying men can marry men and women can marry women. We have created a STATE (or Government) run Church. Maybe not today but this is what the end result will be.
I have loved my country for all my life and still do. But we are no longer the America the founders intended. When the woman asked Thomas Jefferson “Sir what have you given us” and he replied “Ma’am, a Republic, if you can keep it” I can say that as of this week, we lost our republic and Barrack Hussien Obama, This Supreme Court Justices and all those who voted for Barrack Husien Obama are to blame for the fall of America.
If I have a place I knew I could go and life with the freedoms I am slowly losing, I would start considering it. No I am not abandoning America, not just yet. But the thought is now much stronger than ever before. If I knew all this could be turned around, I would not worry one bit. But my fear is that it is too late.
Some of you will jump on a few things said here and call me racist, bigot, hater of gays, etc. Well be my guest. Because I do not hate any gay man or woman. I do not hate any man or woman of color. I am one of those who would let you life as you wish and God in the end will judge both you and I. But some of you will want to make me conform to you and when I don’t I am the bad guy. You are once again entitled to your opinion.
