Why should someone's civil rights be put to a vote? Would you allow your marriage to be voted on?

One religion shouldn't define CIVIL marriage however.

Your hate filled argument certainly makes no sense in the political sense. People shouldn't be denied rights based on hatred and bias just like the blacks were denied rights based on hatred and bias.

Well I am a Christian but I don't expect everyone else to be and I don't think a belief should be a basis to deny a group their civil rights for the U.S. is based on the Constitution and not a theocracy. I am tolerant of other religions and beliefs.

I know it's there. I know it's implied. I know the ACLU has proven it. Am I required to live by your religous beliefs? What if I refuse to? Should I be punished for that? I see that there is a constitution. I don't see anywhere in the constitution that says we have to base our laws on the Holy Bible or the Koran or some person's interpretation of what God wants.

You are the one that made the statement that it was in the Constitution. I did not address any of your other opinions. The truth of the matter it is NOT in the Constitution. Case Closed.

So if we are theocracy then what religion I am required to obey? What God? What religion? Which bible? Which book? I have asked these questions of people that say the same things you do all the time and I never, ever get a direct answer. Maybe that's because they cannot answer it.

Can churches be forced to marry a straight couple they don't want to or of a different faith? Can the state force them? I don't think so. In a case like that the church would be hollering about the constitution's separation of church and state. Due to the separation of church and state in the constitution California wants to marriage to go civil and be addressed in all their marriage laws as civil marriage since there is a separation of church and state they want to reiterate in their marriage laws the rights the U.S. Constitution gives the churches stating that churches are not required to marry anyone they don't want to and that the state cannot force them to. See, separation of church and state protects churches too. It keeps the government out of church's business and the church out of the government's business. If there wasn't a separation of church and state I don't see how churches could be tax exempt. If they get involved in politics they should not be able to keep their tax exempt status. I don't know of any political organization that is tax exempt.

People have a right to their beliefs. I have no issue with that as long as they don't try to make their religious beliefs the law of the land if it infringes upon one's civil rights. I don't see how the U.S. can take a segment of society that aren't even criminals and tell them they have to pay taxes but don't get to have the same rights, that if they are gay they are a third class citizen. One can be biblically correct in their church and home but there is a big difference between a religious marriage performed in a church and a CIVIL marriage performed in court, they are not one and the same.

Read this:

Separation of church and state in the United States

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separation_of_ch...

"The first amendment to the US Constitution states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" The two parts, known as the "establishment clause" and the "free exercise clause" respectively, form the textual basis for the Supreme Court's interpretations of the "separation of church and state" doctrine."

I don't know which poster you are referring to but if you are to me then I wasn't replying to myself I was posting a comment. There is a difference. What I am doing to you right now is replying to you. This is a reply post.

I don't think you know what you are talking about. Please don't make assumptions about me. This is a news subject and far from being a dead subject. The debate on same-sex marriage is heating up more than ever before. If gays issues offend you and you find it "unwanted" then you shouldn't and post on threads about it. If enough people don't post or read about it then it will prove itself to be an unwanted subject. It doesn't need your help to prove anything. That is my perspective. I think your perspective is wrong. That is my opinion. I also think you are probably not for gays having equal rights because I sense you are annoyed with this subject.
