Get married, fine, all my best. That was never why I voted no. But while many claim marriage is a "Right" it was and is my fear that those who demand rights and respect from others will fail to reciprocate. How long will it be till a homosexual couple sue the Catholic or other faiths that do not recognize or perform gay marriages. Will you use the government as your tool to force people to disregard their faith in order to not just have your cake but eat it too?

lordhawhaw: Nothing to worry about on that front. The First Amendment protects the free exercise of religion as well as prohibiting its establishment by government. The separation of church and state that religious conservatives love to rail against would be their ally if anyone actually brought such a ridiculous lawsuit.

Re: "How long will it be till a homosexual couple sue the Catholic or other faiths that do not recognize or perform gay marriages?" Long than it's taken women to sue the Catholic Church for gender bias in ordaining priests???
