The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington said Wednesday that it will be unable to continue the social service programs it runs for the District if the city doesn't change a proposed same-sex marriage law, a threat that could affect tens of thousands of people the church helps with adoption, homelessness and health care.Under the bill, headed for a D.C. Council vote next month, religious organizations would not be required to perform or make space available for same-sex weddings. But they would have to obey city laws prohibiting discrimination against gay men and lesbians
"The city is saying in order to provide social services, you need to be secular. For us, that's really a problem."

Why should they be forced to hold same-sex marriages? Discrimination is never acceptable no matter who you are, but if the church doesn't want gay marriage then they shouldn't have to
