It is wrong for the federal and state government to force churches to preform actions that are against their beliefs. The LGBTQ community has plenty of options on where to get married.

It is our right to life, liberty, and property. According to the US Supreme Court, churches have to. Who are we to say we cannot marry lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer people?

That is incorrect. The Supreme Court stated, "it must be emphasized that religions, and those who adhere to religious doctrines, may continue to advocate with utmost, sincere conviction that, by divine precepts, same-sex marriage should not be condoned. The First Amendment ensures that religious organizations and persons are given proper protection as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths, and to their own deep aspirations to continue the family structure they have long revered."

By forcing churches to marry a couple, the government is violating the first amendment. Which in turn, will be against the United States Constitution.

NO. Priests marry people out of his own velicia. If the priest does not personally consecrate the marriage it cannot be forced on him. He does it out of joy and appreciation of God.

The Church is a place established to specifically oppose perversion. and it is an illegal intrusion to force such things upon the church.

it is not discrimination against individuals, but actions. and the church condemns actions and opinions. That is not a judgement. That is logic.
