Christian Bakery Faces Legal Action after Refusal to make Bert and Ernie Gay Marriage Cake | All Things Catholic | Scoop.it

This means millions of ordinary people who don't agree with gay marriage, face the threat of legal action  if they, out of conscience, decline to provide goods or services to groups they do not agree with or support. It establishes a dangerous precedent about the power of the state over an individual, or business to force them to go against their deeply held beliefs.

With Gay Marriage, Black Pastors Voice Opposition

With Gay Marriage, Black Pastors Voice Opposition | All Things Catholic | Scoop.it

At a recent rally, a large group of black pastors voiced their strong opposition to gay marriage.

"American media or other factions erroneously characterize the traditional meaning of ‘marriage’ as being on par with the civil rights deprivations of Black Americans.  Comparing the dilemmas of same-sex couples to the centuries of discrimination faced by Black Americans is a distortion of our country’s cultural and legal history."

An enlightening read. What do YOU think? Is atheism better or worse than lukewarmness?
