And Virginia's case will be filed Friday, which means the SCOTUS will have 3 cases to sit on until the 6th & 7th & 9th circuits release their rulings later this year.

It is SIMPLE

It is NOT Complicated

Either we Equal Rights for everyone or WE do not

Either WE Have Freedom of Religion or WE do not

You/WE cannot have equal rights for everyone if some are discriminated against

You/WE cannot have Freedom of Religion if some religious groups want to pass laws telling ALL of us how WE should live and believe contrary to OUR beliefs and HOW WE want to live.

Yes, freedom from and of religion is vital. As these court cases have shown, the anti-gay have indeed been trying to curtail the freedom of religion of every church and denomination who supports same sex marriage.

Many of them have been tireless in trying to pass laws that force their personal religious views on individual citizens who do not share them.

That's why the courts become involved.
