Is there anything in the rulings that address religious recognitions?

The 1st may be preserved.

I think this is Civil Law only.

Maybe the "forced" recognition stops too?

This could start more arguments.

I"ll have to agree.

Personally, I'm saving any future arguing over it with people in support of the countless law suits and appeals that will be filed.

You can disagree all you'd like as far I'm concerned, but conservatives who are usually so gun ho about the following the law, are going to have to accept the fact that this isn't changing.

Good.

Now can we move on?

Glad this issue is over with.

Also glad I could agree on a SC ruling.


Move on?

This decision is bound to usher in more abominations!

Disease, polygamy, marriage to animals etc.

Wouldn't it be good to reciprocate?


I don't think those against marriage equality would appreciate reciprocation from me... They haven't been nice AT ALL. And I'm going to choose to ignore them instead of reciprocate with some of the vile, nastiness I've seen from them.


Or now that marriage is now legal for gays, is it time to bash and insult Christians who may disagree?


It doesn't matter that they disagree. They are free to disagree. The law is the only thing that matters in this.

People are still free to think religiously any way they want to.



That includes you.

Why? What is with your obsession of turning assholes into heroes and gilding hate? What respect do they need to be shown other than standing by their right to speak whatever they want?

Here's a wacky thought!

Now that gay marriage (otherwise known as marriage) is now legal, can we at least, show some respect for people who think differently?

I mean, for decades, the gay community and those for same-sex marriage fought for just a little respect from those who thought differently.

Wouldn't it be good to reciprocate?

Or now that marriage is now legal for gays, is it time to bash and insult Christians who may disagree?
Christians are free to believe however they want. Just as I'm free to mock that belief. The 1st Amendment is a beautiful thing!

To be clear, I don't ever mock my more moderate Christians. I respect their beliefs, and am proud to count some of the most devout Christians among my best friends. Usagi-kun, I feel you're moderate, and I respect you, and your beliefs! I also respect that adorable fluffy tails of yours.

Pretty sure this just applies to civil realms. I don't ever see a time where any religious organization will be forced to recognize, or otherwise marry same sex couples in their establishments.

Besides, plenty of denominations are starting to accept LGBT who are in search of the same kind of spiritual enlightenment as they are. And they aren't denying them the right to marry in the church if they so choose.

I'm confused as to what this has to do with Islam at all... This country isn't under Sharia Law and it isn't illegal to draw a picture of Mohammad.


I'm not nearly as confused about Islam as I am about the conflicting rationalizations of protest movements .

If someone want to do anything purposefully that is deemed offensive against Islam ( drawl a picture ) it is protested by people throughout this country . And it is vilified by being called offensive to Muslims !


Perhaps you'd like to point out where it is written that the pro-gay rights crowd is EXACTLY the same as the anti-Islamophobia crowd.


Yet a minority chooses to do something purposeful against Muslim beliefs ( Homosexual marriage ) And it is good because it wins political correctness's and favor ?

I'm sorry this is a double standard !!!


It's not a double standard. You just don't understand that people can defend a religious group from being ridiculed and not implicitly support the actions of that religion.


It's not that I disapprove of gay marriage it is that I disapprove of the idealistic protesters/ mainstream media and government officials that sponsor such a hypocritical thoughts in the selection of which of our rights are right and wrong .


I blame your lack of understanding of the issues at hand.


If you look at my first two comparisons they seem to have absolutely nothing to do with the rights ? The only concern I see on these two issues is" what is the political correct choice" ?


Let's see... One issue was JUST ruled on by the Supreme Court and the other issue is some random SJW issue about Islam that has NOTHING to do with the government. Yeah TOTALLY comparable situations...

Ah yes. I must have missed the commandment that said "Don't diddle your same sex flatmate."

God, in his infinite wisdom and never-ending lifespan, ruling over the endless expanses of the cosmos, nay, the MULTIVERSE of cosmos, really cares where you put your thingy.

Yep.


Well, actually, that God fella did:


Punishments for Sin

The Lord said to Moses, ...

...(11 other verses)...

13 “‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."


Not that I subscribe to the crazy nonsense about killing people for the myriad of crap listed in Leviticus, Chapter 20, but it is in there (no pun intended). In fact, he seems very preoccupied with where I can or cannot put my thingy. Click the link...some creepy stuff. It even addresses having sex with a woman while on her period--both people shall be shunned.

That crazy Bible, I tell ya...

Gays and lesbians who have fallen in love and want to marry haven't fallen in love with a person of the same sex in order to purposefully challenge Muslims or Christians or anyone else.

This SCOTUS decision isn't a statement against religion it's a statement for the separation of church and state.

To show forgiviness to Christians whom might otherwise not be so forgiving themselves might be a growing moment for everyone involved.

The god of haven doesn't give a crap about same sex marriage, the God of man is the one that keep getting piss up about what man does

At the end, we are all the same once the egocentric human body is shed.

I always feel that life, our human life is too short to be wasted in pursuing the human mentality, liberate yourself, know the true heavenly god and live a fruitful life and a happy live, become enlightened within the constricted human mentality, and human religious believe, it is possible if you try, we are after all beings that are capable if incredible beautiful things.

So gay marriage is now legal in this country . I thought homosexuals were offensive to radical Islam ? Let me get this straight I'm just trying to keep up .

Exercising your rights to draw a picture of Mohammed is called bad, baiting and offensive ?

But a minority exercising their right to gay marriage even though offensive to Islam. Is good ?


I really don't understand the rationality of protesters sometimes ? To me it appears the deck is stacked .

When did Islam become the dominate religion in America? Oh yeah I forgot all those states where Sharia has taken over will not stand for this will they.

Maybe it's just me.

I'll have to show restraint and respect for those that disagree only because they are members of my family and my church.

I don't have an exclusive membership of friends and family that agree with everything I support.

Yes, this is how I know*

I pity you, and your ilk.
You firmly believe that your eternal sky-daddy will punish with eternal damnation any dude to puts his mouth on another dude's naughty bits. Nay, you believe this sky-daddy will punish an entire COUNTRY for simply allowing them the same title of "married" as people who DON'T fancy their locker-room pal.

And you pity me.

Neat.
