"GAY" MARRIAGE

A CIVIL SOLUTION TO THE CURRENT (INCORRECT) APPROACH TO HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE

Homosexuals want to get married. OK, but this flies in the face of most religious people in this country.  At this time, 17 States recognize homosexual marriages, only 6 of them by referendum or by State legislatures, the proper method. The other 11 States have had this notion imposed on them by courts. Here is where the problem arises:

"The Bill of Rights.
Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression.  Ratified 12/15/1791.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; ..."

That language is simple and hard to misinterpret. It seems, however, that the current crop of "activist" judges make a habit of doing so.

Now, lets consider some relevant facts...

1. Just because a thing or act is legal does not mean that it is mandatory.  Duck hunting is legal but no one can force you to go duck hunting.  Out-of-marriage sex is legal, but if is against your religious or moral beliefs you cannot be forced into it.

2. The courts have legal authority to grant marriage licenses and to perform marriage ceremonies, called "civil" ceremonies.  If a homosexual "couple" wishes to get married in a State where this is legal, this option is open to them. The States employ bakers and chefs who can bake them a cake or cater their festivities without infringing on the religious rights of people in the private sector. This would also  help fatten the coffers of the States, most of which are in dire fiscal condition anyway.     

 

 

My take on this issue:  If the courts wish to be "activists" let them be responsible for their actions. If they want homosexuals to be married, let them do the marrying. If they want the homosexuals to have wedding cakes, let them do the baking.  Meanwhile, stay the hell out of private citizens' business, and respect the rights our ancestors fought and died for.  They're Your rights too. 

 

A BUREAUCRACY, LIKE ANY LIVING ORGANISM, MUST CONSUME TO SURVIVE.
DON'T LET IT CONSUME YOU.
