Oh, so I see you received the letter from Obama requiring you to go get gay marries. Good luck with finding a suitable partner before the deadline. And will you be wearing matching tuxes, or just coordinating the colors?

When the federal government starts issuing marriage licenses(by amendment to the constitution), we can talk.
Until then the 10th amendment says, a state can deny you the privilege.

The state has to have a good reason to deny you the privilege. Religious objections aren't acceptable, because denying a license based on religious objections is an inherent endorsement of a religion, and that's Unconstitutional.

So the government isn't forcing you to marry someone of the same sex.

And the government isn't forcing you to accept marriages you don't agree with.

What is the government forcing on you, exactly?

Perhaps but it also plays into equal protection under the law. Why should government deny a friend of mine from marrying their love when they are gay while you can? Why are you given protections and rights for having a "traditional marriage" while they can't because they can only get civil unions. I thought Separate-but-equal was rule unconstitutional 60 years ago.

No, forcing me to accept it, against my faith. That is against my 1st amendment right. Freedom of religion, I serve no man.

What are you being "forced to accept"? How is it affecting you at all? No religion is required to perform gay marriages.

How, exactly, are you forced to accept it?
