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.

Following your logic, Christian Identity has a right to lynch black people?. Listen, if you don't like gay marriage, don't marry a person of the same sex. End of the tape.

Sure, if by "love" you mean "torment, bully, and drive to suicide", and by "have a say-so" you mean "force my bronze-age morality on everyone else"...

We love our gay brothers and sisters so much we're going to deny them the basic human rights that we take for granted.

Kind of reminds me of how an abusive spouse will s/he's only hitting you because s/he loves you.

I just spoke to the Supreme Court. They are crushed.

Hello, First Amendment? Ever hear of that, Reverend?

Would this be the same SCOTUS made up of 5(of 9) right-wing fascist christ-stain conservatives? Are you implying that they actually had the temerity to interpret The Constitution correctly? *gasp!*

@Mudak
Hope they enjoy having a Fifth Column that outnumbers them.

In fact, Rev, "Bring it on"

That way we won't have to deal with your ilk anymore.

Here on FSTDT, many outrageous fundie statements are collected. But this fundie statement is extraordinarily outrageous.

Marriage as a right protected and given by the STATE has NOTHING to do with religion. This guy just dared in sheer infamy to overrule the democratic process. "OUR religion says so, therefore NOBODY is allowed to marry homosexual people."

Welcome to an only thinly veiled attempt at establishing a theocracy.

Well, that's the opposite of true. Believers, of any faith, have no special rights in shaping public policy and do not have the right to selectively reject rulings, or dismissals, by the SCOTUS.

If a war is between too unrelated parties it's not a civil war.

Dont want that fight? couldve fooled me. A right to do what? to bully gays and maybe persecute them?

I do believe that these fucks will be as effective as 4-year old boasting about their FBI connections.

And there is this age old expression "Nigga please"

Even as a bisexual atheist, I find it scandalous that churches are forced to consecrate unions that go against their dogma. Oh, wait...

Marriage is an institution older than your God, let alone Jesus. And it didn't wait for the evil libruls and their homosexual agenda to adapt to changing mores throughout history.

You can have whatever religious ethics you want. Hell, you can demand that your entire congregation go to church naked with noodles glued to their faces while riding a unicycle backwards if you want to. What you can't do is force your "religious ethics" on everyone else.

"We love our gay brothers and sisters."

We just don't love them enough to let them have rights.

You don't ever have a right to dictate how other people get married.

It's NOT YOUR BUSINESS!

If you want to dictate the lives of those who willingly submit to your religious authority then go right ahead. For those who are, according to your religious framework, not members of your gang then you are simply not allowed to influence their decision making with your house club rules.

"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"

The US Constitution (and the Treaty of Tripoli) says you don't.

"then we reject the Supreme Court on this issue."

Romans 13: 1-5 says you have to obey the Supreme Court.

Deal with it.

[W]hat the Supreme Court has set up is the greatest civil war between the church and the gay community.

I'm pretty sure that that's not even close to what the Supreme Court has done.

And let me just state for the record, we don't want that fight.

Of course not. You'd rather have everybody give in to your demands and live according to your rules. It's not going to happen.

We love our gay brothers and sisters.

Not enough to give them equal status to yourself, apparently. So much for "family values".

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...

...and gays don't?

...then we reject the Supreme Court on this issue.

You don't agree with the Supreme Court? Fine. I don't agree with all of their decisions, either.

However, don't think for one minute that your opinion carries the force of law.

Dear Rev. Evans:

I don't have children, but it seems to be a common practice to shut up whiny kids with a cookie. Do you want yours with or without walnuts?


Sincerely,

Yep, in YOUR culture and society. Don't get those confused with the secular counterpart(s). Kthxbai!

Hey, Rev.

I, a civil lay person, performed the ceremony for two irreligious people to get married over the weekend. No religion at all ever got into the ceremony. No word about any holy figures, including yours, holy duties, or religious ethics by any measure.

And yet, they're married now in the eyes of the SUPREME FUCKING COURT.

I reject you in a manner most irrespective.

I'm tired of these idiots and their "christian" agenda, trying to take over our government and demanding "special" rights, so they can stop anyone they don't like from marriage. Don't they realize that just believing in some kind of nonsense doesn't grant you rights other people don't have? Because if that were the case, I'd demand as a trekkie that we seize all capitalist ideas and convert to a resource based atheist society with its ultimate goal being the exploration and colonization of space under peaceful humanitarian ideals.
