Hanging out with Prosecco, a mouspad with 3D bewbs and homework.. Great! :-P
Look at that title, it contains two terms that still can’t be seen walking around the park holding hands. The terms being Churches and gay. Obviously i made that title up, there is therefore no actual law that forces priests to feel sick after they just married a gay couple.
Me making up that law has a function. I know many things i do serve no function at all but this has a function. I made a episode of Walter VS The World that contained various views on this topic. Yes there are people who still share their views even if it’s about something fake. I do that as well sometimes. Chatting about whether the girl that just sat next to me on the train had fake boobs…. ;-)
Knowing the history of churches and religious organizations in world, it’s not a big surprise we find it necessary to create rules especially for them. Part of that special “buy four, pay little” treatment is that churches are essentially allowed to be publicly subsidized and also discriminate to a certain extent.
Most synagogues won’t marry you unless you’re Jewish. A lot of Catholic churches won’t marry you if you’re not Catholic. Many of both probably won’t marry gay people, period.
yes, if you want to force a church to marry you, lawsuits can be activated but this isn’t new ground. It’s long-running practice that priests, preachers, rabbis, and other god fearing creatures get their say on religious freedom grounds.
But, what if churches are sort of forced to marry gay couples. I say sort of forced because they won’t get punished if they don’t. But and here comes the positive of the positive of that happy thing that is equality. If a church does marry gay couples then you as a government could give them a treat.
They can choose from a box of Peeps or a box of “not having to pay taxes” cookies. It is essentially a little more politically form of bribery.
Just to end things here, i want equality. If i have to give up my privately owned collection of moldy lollypop sticks and in exchange the world would accept everyone for who they are. would say that’s a deal!!!
