no you didnt
your religious cult and theri belifs have nothing at all to do with the legal, binding contract of marriage.

Military chaplins were forced to perform these ceremonies, regardless of their religious beliefs...that is an infringement...is it not???
that is because they are gov't employees before they are ministers or priests or whatever they are. they can always quit if they want to.

your cult has absolutely no say in US laws. none.

keep your cult where it belongs, in your tax subsidized church, or you just may lose that subsidy to your faith and watch your church fold like the house of cards it is...

Why do fundietards, teabaggers and righ wingers get so upset over an issue that is not likely to affect their personal lives in any meaningful way? It would appear that they want to impose their bronze age mythology on normal educated people!

yes they are, and following the rules of their jobs in no way prevents them from practicing their cult's rites or beliefs.

if their jobs duties are in conflict with their cult's beliefs, that is a problem they have with their chosen profession.

see...when people are in the real world, they have to abide by real world rules, not those of their cult. when they are in their tax subsidized church, they can then do as they wish.(don't even get me started on how wrong that taxpayer subsidy is if they don't follow federal law...)

no, no it doesn't. no matter what you 'believe', marriage and your cult's rites are not hte same thing. this is reality.

You made my point for me...the government overrode his 1st amd rights therefore ssm has infringed on our first amd rights...

Wrong and here's an article for ya:
Gov. David A. Paterson has directed all state agencies to begin to revise their policies and regulations to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions, like Massachusetts, California and Canada.

In a directive issued on May 14, the governor’s legal counsel, David Nocenti, instructed the agencies that gay couples married elsewhere “should be afforded the same recognition as any other legally performed union.”

The revisions are most likely to involve as many as 1,300 statutes and regulations in New York governing everything from joint filing of income tax returns to transferring fishing licenses between spouses.

Did ya notice that Canada was mentioned?

Sorry, not true...NY didn't recognize ssm until 2 years after the death of her partner...they were never legally married in the United States....
