So the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favor of gay marriage.
Big deal. I’m not going to celebrate even though I want gays and lesbians to have that privilege. I am concerned with a few things.
First off, is this ruling to be enforced by churches across the nation, regardless of the belief of that church? If so, that is a clear violation of the separation of church and state many liberals and atheists keep pushing forward to remove any mention of Christianity in government.
The fight involved religion simply because the people pushing for gay marriage needed a villain, someone/something to evoke an emotional response for their ‘fight’. And what better way to get liberals, democrats, left-wingers, and atheists on board than to make Christianity the villain. They want to make Christianity the villain, enjoy it, so it was an easy partnership.
The real fight here wasn’t about religion, but law.
Gays and lesbians wanted to have an equal partnership in the eyes of the law. They wanted the same rights under the law that normal married couples receive. Be treated the same by insurance companies, who until a ruling can easily say they won’t cover a ‘partner’ of a same sex because its not recognized by the law, not religion, but law. Or if a couple has been together for years, decades, one is injured goes to the hospital and only ‘family’ can visit. The hospital can deny the visitation due to law, not religion, but law.
There should have been no reason why in the eyes of the law such marriages should be illegal. But when government says that any religion should accept it, and start practicing it, its violating the separation of church and state.
Of course liberals only care about that when its in their favor, otherwise it means nothing.
