Inside your churches you can do whatever the hell you please -- discriminate to your heart's content -- after all, your lord and master did. Only men could be priests, only Israelites were chosen, only men could be disciples, only men could be elders and bishops, only males could have more than one spouse ... ad nauseum.

Now, as for how long your churches will -- or should -- be able to discriminate TAX FREE, that's anybody's guess!

Yep, and now the anti-gays have yet another ready made ad with the NY couple that is suing because a business refused to let them use their facility for their marriage.

Hate to say if folks, but until we get marriage rights nationwide, we're gonna have to use a bit more common sense and stop suing every private business which discriminates against us.

We are in the stage of our struggle for Equal Rights wherein increasingly "hearts and minds" matter more than taking on every fight that presents itself in every location ... especially when to do so can be spun to lose us votes.
