Lets get real...churches are businesses. Christians cherry pick what they want to believe. the whole thing about love can only be between one man and one women is total bs. Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines and he seemed to be one of gods favorites.
It's a form of discrimination, either marry all consenting adults or none. It is the only way
I vote yes because there are gay Christians who want a traditional Christian wedding. I noticed that the church do not object marrying people who eat pork, shell fish, sex out of marriage, wore mixed fabrics, works on Sunday (which is a pagan day), etc. etc. It is just another contradiction.
Church is about acceptance
You would take away someone's freedom to provide someone else with a choice to do something on that first person's property?
If gays have a right to get married then preachers should have a right to choose whether or not to marry them. It's only fair.
However the church would have to follow a set of rules because of its discriminatory nature and the fact that its a tax exempt institution.
Duh. I'm obviously going to take the side of the truism.
Churches have special rights to be d1cks.
They shouldn't be forced to act against their religious beliefs.
I believe most gays are secular anyway. Gay Christians probably belong to churches that do accept gay marriage, so it's not a problem. Besides, I'm against the idea of wedding in churches anyway. It diverts attention from the familial element, which is the true meaning of marriage, to religion.
No, I'm Pro gay-marriage, but it's their choice. Also, I can't imagine why anyone would want to get married in a place where their marriage won't even be recognized.
Why would you force anyone to do anything against their will? We live in a free country. Right? I said "Right?"!? I'm looking at you Democrat Party!
Why don't we just make Muslims eat ham too!
It is their right to deny a same sex religious ceremony, whether people like it or not. Deal with it.
I think they should do the weddings, but i dont think chirches should be forced to. Theres a million things churches wont do already. Divorce and all that.
Churches are for people of faith, gays have no place in the church. It would not be right to force people to do something that they do not think is right. It is not discrimination because if your gay you can not really call yourself a christian because your going against christian teachings.
As an openly gay man, I believe that no church should be forced to marry someone they do not want to. However, I also believe that ONLY churches can refuse to participate in gay weddings. Any other businesses should cater to all.
