Gay Marriage Forced On Church’s

Gay marriage is now the law in six states.  I am sure most people in these states believe it is the right of gay people to be married, but probably feel it is a Church’s right to withhold from gay marriage ceremonies, if it is against the fundamental belief of that Church.  Some courts do not agree.

Ocean Grove, a United Methodist Church in New Jersey, was successfully sued by a lesbian couple for not allowing them to be married on Ocean Grove’s grounds.  The site in question is Ocean Groves’ seaside pavilion which is used in worship ceremonies.  Ocean Grove argued under the First Amendment they have the right to not allow marriages they do not recognize on their grounds, the judge did not agree.  Judge Solomon Metzger ruled Ocean Grove had to allow such marriages then went one step further and revoked Ocean Groves tax-exempt status on the pavilion and surrounding grounds.  The tax-exempt status has since been re-instated for most of the grounds after the church re-filed for the exemption.

This is not only an example of out-of-control judges, who willfully withhold Constitutional rights from one group, usually Christian/Catholic groups while extending non-existent rights to other groups, usually gay or Muslim groups but it is also an example of how liberal rulings and laws become dominoes.  Once a law is passed, gay marriage in this case, lawsuits are filed against organizations thought to be exempt, then one ruling against the organization is then used as precedence forcing all to be loyal to the law.

Here are a few cases from around the nation from NPR’s website, where other people’s rights are stepped on forcing them to recognize gay marriage:

Yeshiva University was ordered to allow same-sex couples in its married dormitory. A Christian school has been sued for expelling two allegedly lesbian students. Catholic Charities abandoned its adoption service in Massachusetts after it was told to place children with same-sex couples.

On January 28, 2008, the New Mexico Human Rights Commission heard the case of Vanessa Willock v. Elane Photography.

Willock, in the midst of planning her wedding to her girlfriend, sent the photography company an e-mail request to shoot the commitment ceremony. Elaine Huguenin, who owns the company with her husband, replied: “We do not photograph same-sex weddings. But thanks for checking out our site! Have a great day!”

In April, the state human rights commission found that Elane Photography was guilty of discrimination and must pay the Willock’s more than $6,600 attorneys’ fee bill. The photographers are appealing to state court.

This isn’t just about gay marriage.  This is the liberals attempts to gain and maintain power and control within the nation and the religious right gets in the way.  Religious people and morality are at odds with the goals of liberals and the left can’t control religious people in the same manner Nazi and Communist did…imprison them or kill them, no they have to control the religious by marginalizing them.  Once the left has a large portion of the nation in agreement (in this case the youth agrees with the left on gay marriage) then they can marginalize the rest making morality and religion antiquated beliefs and thus reducing those who practice Christianity allowing for more control with morality being a thing of the past.

As the election of 2012 approaches we must remember, it is the President who appoints judges to these benches and it is the Senate that approves them.  If you want to reverse the tide, vote against Barack Obama and any democrat Senator.

  1. this is crazy… so much for liberty, and what i do in the bedroom doesn’t concern you

  2. Anonymous says:

    I would say that’s backward. I would say Churches are forced on Gay people. Apparently State Sanctioned Religion is the new norm.

  3. Keith says:

    What you do in the bedroom doesn’t affect others???? Others are now being sued for not compromising THEIR beliefs in favor of gay beliefs. Sounds like what you do in the bedroom IS affecting others!

    Did you mean “churches?”

    Because I’ve not seen an onslaught of marriages happening at the local fried chicken joint.

  7. Tedlick Badkey says:

    Hysterical… New Jersey doesn’t even HAVE marriage for gay folks… you’re lying.

    What they do have is non-discrimination laws identical to what christians (and others) get from the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1968.

    Your hypocrisy is as thick as cold tar.

  8. Kevin says:

    So if the owner if a photography studio believes that interracial marriage is immoral, he should be allowed to deny them service?

    What about if the owner of a restaurant believes black people are immoral? Should he be allowed to deny them service as well?

    Basically you are asking to undo all of the reforms passed during the civil rights battle. There is no difference between someone who discriminates against homosexuals because of their belief and someone who discriminates against black people because of their belief

    America fell in love with baseball well over a century ago. It was interrupted by the Civil War between the states. When people wanted things to get back to “normal” after the war, baseball games sprung up everywhere. Farmers, former slaves, and factory workers alike played the game. One of my grandfathers actually did sell sodas from the back of a wagon in a number two washtub. Unfortunately, the game was on a hot Sunday afternoon in Joaquin, Texas and the powers that be at his church were appalled at the very thought. He was given the left foot of fellowship out the door. So, included is a fictional story based on that event. Somewhere along the way, baseball music sprung up with the game. This book contains the complete sheet music to 47 of those early, fun songs – from polkas to two-steps to marches and others. The music is very much a real part of the history of American Baseball. Baseball was then interrupted again by another war, World War I.
