A federal judge just ruled that the Pennsylvania ban on so called same sex marriage is unconstitutional. I’ve read the Constitution.I’m not finding it and i know i haven’t missed much. Marriage is between one man/one woman for life. It is because this has been marriage for 1,000 of years I oppose a redefinition to something that cannot exist;evidently that makes me a homophobe who suffers from homophobia. The problem with this term is that there is no such thing therefore there is no such word. The other problem is that because i accept the institution of marriage(one man-one woman)some people will say i either hate ‘gays’ or fear ‘gays’ or that I’m intolerant. Ok. I’m intolerant. Since when did it become a requirement to tolerate everything and anything?
I was also told to move to the Middle East where the religious beliefs are tied to the state.I take it what they are saying is that because i accept marriage that i support a theocracy. I don’t accept murder either. Maybe i support a theocracy?
PLS read the Catechism of Catholic Church for a clear understanding of Catholic teaching on same sex attraction and marriage http://www.scborromeo.org/ccc/p3s2c2a6.htm
Some questions;when the marriage license is drawn up what will it say? Husband and husband? Wife and Wife? Husband and “husband” or wife and “wife” or is it going to be a fill in the dotted line?
Do we throw the consummation of marriage out the window now?
An unmarried couple comes to us and wants to rent a room. We say no because we believe living together in a sexual relationship outside of marriage is immoral.
A same sex ‘married’ couple comes to us and wants to rent a room.We say no because we don’t recognize their marriage and believe the relationship is immoral. So we’re discriminating?
We have to violate our conscience and be forced BY LAW into doing so?
Law would have forced us to accept slavery.Our conscience would not allow us to obey this law because it was immoral.
You mean to say in the 21st century we haven’t come along far enough to recognize that people cannot violate their conscience?
I’m with Pope Francis.If a person with the disordered attraction is trying to live a good Christian life who am i to judge?
I’m also with the Catholic Church in saying that a person with the disordered attraction(as stated in the Catechism)is called to live a chaste life and not engage in the immoral practice of homosexual relations.Pope Francis was not saying anything different. I do not hate people with the disorder. I don’t fear them-that’s utter nonsense. I am intolerant because there is no requirement to tolerate anything and everything especially when in good conscience i am not to tolerate an immoral behavior.
I also want to know how a federal judge can overturn this ban? I also want to know how the judge arrived at the conclusion the ban was unconstitutional?
The Mormoms(LDS)and Muslims-one who used to practice polygamy and one that still does may as well stand up and ask for the right to marry several partners. What difference does it make? NAMBLA may as well stand up and say that their right to marriage is being violated.
I feel very angry that much is being shoved on the American people and we have very little(if any) say.I would call it the dictatorship of relativism.
Could anyone point out the Constitutional basis for the judge’s decision? I would like to see this.
