Quote# 78969

(reaction to the SCOTUS rejection of a challenge to the D.C. marriage law)

[W]hat the Supreme Court has set up is the greatest civil war between the church and the gay community. And let me just state for the record, we don't want that fight. We love our gay brothers and sisters. But if the Supreme Court is not going to acknowledge the fact that we have a right as religious people to have a say-so in the framework of religious ethics for our culture and society, then we reject the Supreme Court on this issue.

Waaaah! I'm being persecuted for not being allowed to choose the members of society I want to persecute!

Umm... I'm pretty sure that you don't have that right. Not to the extent of influencing legal decisions, anyway.

So loonies with imaginary friends aren't being obeyed when they BAWW about people who do them no harm. Oh well.

We gays don't want that fight either. So if we all just mind our own business there won't be a problem.

The Supreme Court set up a fight? A civil war? WHAT? How about you stop going after homosexuals? Problem solved! No war necessary!

You do realize that there's a substantial number of religious people who would grant gays the same legal rights that straights now enjoy. Why don't you fight that civil war out amongst your own kind?

> We love our gay brothers and sisters.

And we know what the next word is going to be, don't we?

> But

Yes! There we go! Fundies are predictable.

You're really forcing our hand, we don't want to be despicable bigots at every given opportunity, but we will anyway, lolz.

"We love or gay brothers and sisters so much that we will deny them civil rights and harass and brainwash them whenever we have the slightest opportunity to do so."

I don't think gays need your kid of "love".

You do not have the right to have the ethical framework of your religion foisted by law onto the entire population. How you cannot see this is a case of abominable ethical standards on your part is staggering.

Except, you know, you DON'T have that right. The constitution and Treaty of Tripoli make sure that you can't impose YOUR religion on the rest of us.

I am now imagining an actual civil war between the church and the gay community. Hang on...hang on...I got nothing. Imagination fail.

Hey, and about that whole framework of religious ethics deal: you do realize you've enjoyed that for centuries now, right? Maybe someone else could get a word or two in edgewise?

[W]hat the Supreme Court has set up is the greatest civil war between the church and the race-mixing community. And let me just state for the record, we don't want that fight. We love our race-mixing brothers and sisters. But if the Supreme Court is not going to acknowledge the fact that we have a right as religious people to have a say-so in the framework of religious ethics for our culture and society, then we reject the Supreme Court on this issue.

Same shit, different decade.

By the way, Christians are supposed to obey secular law. Your own Bible says so repeatedly.

Antonhony Evans, you are not worthy to be dignified by the title Reverend. also you do not know the constitution of your country. Even I, a foreigner by your lights, seem to have a better handle on it.

so I can only conlude that your reference to your 'gay brothers and sisters' is nothing more than window-dressing. In a word, hypocrisy. Religion, per se, has no rights under your constitution except that the of non interference in its practice by the State. Nor have you the right to reject the Supreme Court. For even the Supreme Court, whilst interpreting, is bound by the constitution and precedent.

Now crawl back under the rock you emerged from before the Muslims take comfort from your words and persuade the Supreme Court they have the right of Jihaad against you.

Where the hell did you Christians get the idea you invented or control marriage. Religious ethics ( which covers only fuckin' everything with history taken into account)have no bearing on anyone who doesn't kneel to them Give it up, it's always been a legal arrangement the world over.

As a little-known pygmy of African/Irish descent, I must concur that we all know that religious ethics are the province of slobbering, drooling, insane, subhuman filth and their mandatory stupidity. So keep them to yourself you cretinous evil creature. Hmmm! There may be a better way of framing that?

No, your religious "ethics" do not get to be the framework for anything but your religion and your personal life.

Marriage is a CIVIL contract shit for brains. We let you gits have your religious services to keep your yaps shut.

What you need to understand is that not every religion is as discriminatory towards gays as you are. Some are coming around to the fact that many gays are Christians and they are accepting them into the fold, and they are willing to bless their unions even to the point of actually marrying them.
What you are forgetting is you live in a secular country that has secular laws that are not bound by religious "ethics." As such the Supreme Court did what it had to do. You can reject the Supreme Court all you want, I reject your entire faith. The funny thing is, I have protection by law to do so and you don't have protection to discriminate. It's a bitch, ain't it?

we have a right as religious people to have a say-so in the framework of religious ethics for our culture and society

All people, religious or otherwise, have a say-so in the framework of society. It's called "freedom of speech" and "elections". What other right is he looking for? The "right" to ignore civil law when it goes against one's particular religious beliefs? By that principle, the 9/11 bombers were entitled to exercise their "right" to blow up the Twin Towers.

You have a say-so in who you marry, perhaps also in who your daughters and sons marry, but that is all. You do NOT have a right to say "due to my religion, which you don't share, you can't get married because I think it's icky". Or rather; you have every right to say it, but you don't have a right to be obeyed.

And don't non-religious people have a right not to have their rights taken away from them by religious people? Since the principle of human rights is that you can do what you want as long as it harms no one and does not interfere with the human rights of anyone else, their rights not to be persecuted trump your "right" to persecute them, because no one has the right to persecute another. When will you dumbasses understand this?

Funnily enough, I originally misread SCOTUS as SCOUTS, as in, the Boy Scouts. Make of that what you will.
