Because freedom can't protect itself
Who knows, when the government decides whats right and whats wrong, Churches might not have the decision.
Darax, why are you so concerned about what might happen, despite assurances and legal precedent to the contrary, and ignore what actually is happening - the church deciding what is right and wrong for the State?
I don't believe a word of it. The far-left is well known for it's intolerance of views they disagree with. Ask any conservative or christian speaker at any university campus of how tolerant rank and file ACLU members are of them when they attempt to speak in their auditoriums and such. What is spoken in the public forums and what is whispered in the back-rooms of any ACLU board-meeting is entirely two different things. The majority of those sitting in the leadership of this organization follow the philosophies laid out in the communist manifesto. When the governments of these nations came to power, the citizens were told there would be greater freedom for the people if marxist were put in power. It was all a lie. The ACLU has the same vision for those they oppose in this nation.
People marry each other, contractually, and the ring is the offering and seals the deal when accepted.
Family, friends, ministers/priests in churches are
a lot of talking about nothing..
