Bingo Avatar John. Nobody on the right hates gay people. All the hate comes from the left.

I'm sorry, but this is just factually incorrect. It's more like this:

Oreo situation:
Right: "Meh, they're entitled to their opinion. I personally won't be eating any more Oreo's, but you can do what you want."
Left: "OMG! Oreo's are being persecuted by the right! Those hateful bigots, let's string them up and show them how their 'hate' is not to be tolerated and must be punished severely!

CFA situation:
Right: "Meh, they're entitled to their opinion. I personally will eat there more often now, but you can do what you want."
Left: "OMG! What hateful bigots! Their businesses must be ruined! Their personal property must be destroyed! They must be executed or at least run out of the country and genrally not tolerated for their difference of opinion! Let's protest! Let's kiss-in! Let's create a general nuisance of ourselves and try and destroy as many American institutions as we possibly can in the name of our insa

A minister is not a legal entity, they are "men of the cloth" not judges. Secular judges confer legality. All of which I *just said*. Ministers confer sacramental status according to their religious tradition. That's it.


So if two people go to a church in the USA and have a wedding as part of a Christian ritual, conducted by an officially recognised Christian cleric in an officially recognised Christian church with an officially recognised Christian marriage service...they're not legally married? Their wedding has no legal status at all? In the eyes of the law, they are still single and have no marriage-related rights or responsibilities?

Is that really true?

Or does it double as a legal wedding as well as a religious one?

Almost every time I see someone like you make an ignorant or bigoted conservative statement I just look over at their age and am relieved that they and their worthless brethren will be gone soon. Society progresses when the bigots die off.

Maybe so, but not until I've spent every last f***ing penny you've paid into Social Security, you gullible liberal f***tard! Ha ha ha ha ha!

Deciding to either go to a restaurant and buy a chicken sandwich, or not....is now a political act that puts you in either one hate group, or another.

Wtf.....

Northern Ireland is part of the UK, those poor people regularly have car bombs planted for them and they're killing each other in the streets over which river will take their collective barge to heaven, the Tiber or the Thames? If you didn't know any better you'd think you were walking through some enclave in the Middle East.

The US learned from Europe's gigantic religious mess and crafted our Constitution specifically to avoid that. And It worked too. Say what you will about our psychotic Religious Right, but at least we've never spilled blood over it.

Or are you telling me that religious marriages in the USA have NO legal status at all? They come with no legal rights and no legal responsibilities?

If they are legal marriages, that legality part is the point because the legality part has its roots in the law. So it's a secular matter, not a religious matter. They're seperate, right? If law and religion really are seperate, there's nothing stopping all legality being removed from religious weddings.

Feel free to continue to insult me rather than answering any questions or providing any evidence. I find it amusing and the more you do it the more you weaken your own argument.

With your fantastically limited understanding of this country's Constitution and your hubris & total ignorance about the way things are done in the real world, you ought to keep your great ignorant mouth shut. Or to use the British- you Git.


That doesn't distract from the fact that you didn't answer the question.

I'm going to assume it's because you don't like the answer.

As for the idea that religion is a bigger factor in politics in the UK than in the USA, that's very amusing. Nobody with a clue would think that. You can look at a couple of summary pages and see that the UK has an official state religion, but that minute or so isn't enough to tell you the reality of the situation. It's a formality for historical reasons and it's almost completely ignored in Britain. It's part of politics in northern Ireland, which is a big part of the problem, but not in Britain.

Secular authorities already grant marriage certificates, you can walk right down to the courthouse and get one, and religious ministers already perform the religious marriage ("in the eyes of god" vs "in the eyes of the law").

Because you know...of the Separation of Church and State.

Angie the 1st amendment to the US Constitution states two things about religion, 1 Non Establishment, there is no state religion, (*unlike in the UK and other European countries. In fact this is one of the reasons you'll never get rid of your Queen, she also functions as the head of the Church of England, vaguely like the Pope*) and the state cannot promote any religion. And 2, Free Exercise, members of any religion are allowed free exercise of their beliefs.

Creationism/ID whatever you want to call it has been illegal forever, every once in a while some county in Texas will try to force it otherwise and they immediately get smacked down and the 6th amendment expressly forbids any religious test for office.

Can a legally recognised marriage be carried out anywhere in the USA by anyone? So, for example, if someone was to stop a random stranger in a random shop and wed with someone else in front of that stranger, would that constitute a legally valid marriage under USA law?

I suspect some sort of approval is required from the authorities, either of place, person or both.

If so, then that approval can be withheld. Surely you'd want it withheld from anywhere that discriminates to such an extent? There certainly are people who do want that.

So maybe it wouldn't be possible to force religious places to perform homosexual marriages (and maybe it would be possible, since church and state are not seperate in the USA), but it would probably be easier to force them to stop performing marriages at all.

There would be a way. Your declaration that it's impossible isn't one you have the power to impose on the country.

And dynamo, no the federal government could *not* force houses of worship to perform gay marriages if that *private* house of worship does not believe in it. It could never happen. That's the whole point of separation of church and state.


Church and state are not seperate in the USA. Maybe they might sort of be on paper, but they're far from seperate in reality.

For example, which presidents have been openly atheist? Presidential candidates? Anyone in or a serious contender for any senior political office anywhere in the USA?

If there was seperation of church and state, there wouldn't be any chance at all of religion being taught in schools, let alone a deliberately deceitful attempt to corrupt and destroy the entire idea of science by abusing it as a host for religion and forcing that on children. Yet there continues to be an issue with "intelligent design", which is exactly that.

Only one single, and very essential difference: pro gay rights legislation doesn't hurt anyone. It doesn't limit the rights of anyone, nor does it force them to do anything. It's not discriminatory in ANY way, and is only INCLUSIVE.

Anti-gay legislation is, by its very nature, discriminatory. It limits rights. Period. It is, by *it's* very nature, EXCLUSIVE.

Not only should gay marriage be legal, it should be mandatory! Everyone should lay their sexuality aside and go explore. Personally, I am going for the first opportunity to sodomize the next legal boy I see.

When it comes to God and Jesus, I have learned one thing: Don't pray for God to give you something, like a bike or a car. That's not how He works!

You go out and steal one. Afterwords you ask for forgiveness! Ask the Pope, he knows how this works. And he does not allow condoms either, could it get any better? LOL

In the name of the Lord Jesus, I say to all his disciples thy shall all go man with man and lay down and explore every cavity and let thy semen rain upon thee as Gods own life giving rain does on the dry soil you live upon. Sing Hallelujah!

Those Oreos STILL look FAAAAABULOUS!!! Delicious too. Never had a Chick-Fil-A (none here in Canada) but I'd still like to try it. The owner's views are one thing, their food does not make one a gay basher. At least, I hope it doesn't. I mean, Orson Scott Card has the same views, but I enjoyed Ender's Game and playing Shadow Complex.

"Just because someone has a point of view you are too thick to understand, you hate them and lie about their point of view!"

Random, you obviously need to educate yourself. Only then will you not sound like such an idiot. There is a huge difference between a person having and opinion and practicing discrimination in a work place. One is legal and the other is not. If Chick-fil-a is allowed to get away with the discriminatory crap they've been pulling for years then it will be because of morons like you.
