A New Twist on Homosexual Marriage: Conscience Equals Discrimination

Gay Marriage Bill Falls Short in New Hampshire House

The link above will take you to the news story from the Washington Post, but the gist of it is that a bill came before the New Hampshire House of Representatives to legalize "gay marriage". The bill failed by a margin of two votes. Apparently the reason the bill failed was that the governor wanted a conscience clause added so that religious leaders could refuse to marry homosexuals on the grounds of religious conscience, and this was unacceptable to some because it would legalize discrimination. In other words, conscience equals hatred.

This is the way they fight the battle. It doesn't matter why a person does not approve of gay marriage. If a person disapproves, they're automatically homophobes and "gay-bashers". This is the kind of "tolerance" we're allowed to have these days.

When this becomes law anywhere I live--and I'm sure it will--I will no longer perform weddings at all.

Are you close to a state line you could jump across? :)

Dan--Right now the point is academic, as I'm not authorized to perform weddings anywhere. But I'm hoping to be a parish pastor again someday, and how long will it be before this becomes a federal law or a constitutional amendment.
