My question would be, "is gay marriage more important than religious freedom?"
When you use the word "important", I question what is important to Americans.

There's a huge part of our population that shows no interest in upholding the constitution.

Who wins an Oscar or stars in a new movie gets the attention of so many people.

Uphold the rule of law? Deport illegals? Insure religious freedom? Not much interest from the lefties on these issues.

Interesting point. Gay marriage is now the law.

Will you uphold the rule of law?

OK, if the government can't define marriage, perhaps it shouldn't be offering tax breaks for marriage.
Ummmm. They just did.

The definition of marriage as between a man and a woman no longer applies. You and all others are free to marry who or what you like.

In other words the definition of marriage as we have had for thousands of years no longer applies regardless of religious beliefs.

But, there is a little clause in the constitution that's says congress can make no laws against our right to practice religion. I guess that no longer applies.

Liberty once lost, is lost forever.

And which law is that?

What was the HB number on this "law"?

When did the President sign this "law"?

The 14th Amendment is rule of law. I pay more taxes. Let's start there. I don't have equal protection.

As for a religious institution being forced to perform a ceremony against their religion, shouldn't happen. Gays can still marry through Justice of the Peace. It'd be a violation of the 1st Amendment to force a religion to perform a ceremony outside of it's creed. It's a religious ceremony. Not a legal one. Married couples who did their ceremony in a church still have to go to JoP to make a marriage legal. The ceremony is a separate issue.

More likely, there will be new age religion churches that perform homosexual marriage ceremonies.

You gotta expand that to mean a marriage between (anythings) and (anythings).

Doesn't mean you have to live together. Heck, a fire plug can marry a flock of geese flying by. Later in the day, that same fire plug can marry a stream of dog urine.

Why not??? Once the ridiculous has been passed, there is no limit.

He didn't. Neither did the congress or senate as they were intended. They did not have the balls. So, SCOTUS got it instead and created new law that was a legislative responsibility.

Just like they did with roe vs wade.

Like I said, what if I want to marry myself for the tax break? If you say that is impossible, you are a bigot who is limiting the definition of marriage. Bigoted against single celibacy?

You can shut me up just by removing all the unfairness in tax code. I don't care WHO marries WHO but when it costs me in greater relative tax burden, YOU BET IT'S MY BUSINESS.

But SCOTUS is forbidden to create laws. They only determine the constitutionally of laws created by the legislative branch.

So, they have ruled against a law defining marriage as being one man and one woman.

Why couldn't a single person claim eight personalities and marry them all?

Marriage is between a male and a female. That is the ONLY limit.

But I want to marry my pillow.

You know what the fix is?

Get government the hell out of the entire institution of marriage.

If marriage is religious, government doesn't belong in it.

If marriage isn't religious, and is a mere contractual and legally binding agreement between two parties, then why is government able to say what is and isn't a contract? And why does government honor a contractual arrangement with a tax break?

Get government out of the institution of marriage.

I can see the health insurance industry (ACA) licking their chops on this.(SCAM) Employers will now have to insure their employees other half and any kids they adopt.(SCAM)
How many more (Government Worker/Contractor House Husbands)will be on the government dole for free medical provided by the tax payer?
Even the Gold Plan of Obama Care is a total rip off with out of pocket expenses. (SCAM)

Is gay marriage now more important than religious freedom to disagree?
That's the million dollar question.

Divide and Conquer___gaining and maintaining power by breaking up larger concentrations of power "(Christian's in this case)' into pieces that individually have less power than the one implementing the strategy.

Divide and Rule___The use of this technique is meant to empower the sovereign to control subjects, populations, or factions of different interests, who collectively might be able to oppose his rule.
