Economic rights do not exist, certainly not the right to work with a decent salary comfortably above poverty. Apparently, even voting rights are shaky now with the new restrictions imposed by the right. Universal health, commonplace in most democratic nations, does not exist in America. 12 million children go to bed hungry in America, and a Church which is supposedly concerned about children are silent about this (as about most other social rights) but militant against gay marriage. There has been a massive redistribution of wealth, but mainly from the have nots to the haves. Where is the Church's voice. Growing poverty is ok. Demonize the poor themselves, it seems. Hunger is Ok. Homelessness is OK. War and profiteering at the expense of the common good seems ok to thse theocratic hypocrites. But mention a gay couple getting married, and many Churches and churchmen are willing to wage a holy crusade.<quoted text>
I think that might violate tenents of the Social Gospel
Actually they're standing up for all people in this regard, particularly the children, who seem largely forgotten in the desire for "rights". The right to marry already exists, just because some folks don't want to exercise it the same way as the it is intended, doesn't mean they don't have the right in the first place.
If this is the attitude of the Church then to hell with the Church.
