Suppose a same sex couple decide to get married. And they want to get married, let's a Catholic church. If that church refuses to marry them can they now be sued for violating the couples civil rights? Discrimination? Etc?

"You completely misunderstand the reference you cite. Separation of church and state was in place to prevent a single national religion while allowing citizens the freedom to practice any religion they choose, not to keep religious influence out of our society - quite the opposite, actually! Do some research and you will see what I mean."


You do the research. It blocks religious beliefs from indoctrinating the masses. No religious belief is upheld as the law of the land, that is what this clause does.

California is still a part of America? I considered that Mexico years ago - hey Moakler, shut your ridiculously disgusting face! It's really quite simple - and I'm no bible thumper ... there is a reason men were made the way they are and women the way they are! Freakin goofballs!

It also gives you the freedom to practice no religion if you so choose. It's in place so that religious views of any kind are pushed into the public eye. God, the bible etc etc just don't fit into our government.

"You people on here seem to miss a point here. This is a democracy nation. This was voted on by the people of california as it should be by every state and was voted against. Therefore no judge should have any authority to overrule what was voted on by voters. IF it had gone the other way then the gay people would be up in arms if he would of done it as well. I do not care if you are for or against this issue, you should be outraged over what is going on in this country. We fought wars in this country for a reason and are loosing more and more of those freedoms that were fought for. "

So if Alabama voted to ban interracial marriage that would be ok? Your an idiot.

"By the way, GAYs will NOT be allowed in the military, no matter what was promised by OBAMA. Guarantee it!"

Neither will women or blacks! LMAO. Your an idiot! If not by Congress then by the US Supreme court! There is already a federal case to end DADT in the works. So just give it time.

PS. 75k Gays are already serving in the armed forces.

"You call 30 million Gay people in our Nation small? You must be an idiot! You don't have to agree that is its 100% natural, just like people still hate black people. "

What is there to explain? Can you read?

YES MEN CHEAT AND LIE! i wont go back on my word when it comes to that . more and more women are going gay and alot of the reasons is because of the way men are .

What people do is there business. The problem is this is twice the people of California had said not 11 and 8. So your vote means nothing.

"Shocking, the most liberal court in the land struck down the ban. Thank God it will go to the Supreme Court and be reinstated, as it should be. A true marriage is between a man and a woman. "

Nope. You cannot reinstate an unconstitutional law. Why do you think they haven't reinstated the ban on interracial marriage? A true marriage has always been different. You must not read? Gay marriages and polygamy marriages have existed for thousands of years!

1 Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
