On the 3rd of April there was a rally on the Nebraska side of the Pedestrian bridge celebrating Iowa's 1 year anniversary of gay marriage. Time for Nebraska to follow suit!!!

I'm going to take a guess that you are a religeous folk who believes social laws need to be determined by religeon, and not on the basis of individual freedoms.

To each their own!

I fail to see how allowing men to marry men and women to marry women affects them anyway. When the Iowa Supreme Court ruled UNANIMOUSLY in favor of gay marriage they specifically said the ruling would not force churches to marry gay couples. Yet the conservatives and Christian right continue to make the false claim that churches will have to marry gay couples. Completely false. This was the same lie the religious right used to get Prop 8 in California passed. They lied, yet what do their Ten Commandments say about lying? Talk about hate, ignorance and hypocrisy!

Talk about stupid...

Regardless of the rightness or wrongness of the Iowa gay marriage legislation, there is no question that sometime in the near future, some gay couple will want to be married in some church. The church will refuse, and the gay couple will sue the church.

It's a given. If it hasn't already happened, it will.

I believe freedom gives you the power to do what is right, not whatever you want. But yes, each to his own.

There is almost no way a church can be sued for not marrying a gay couple. The Catholic Church (and others) has always refused to marry certain couples on the basis that they don't meet their "requirements."

Being married in a church of your choosing is not even remotely close to a fundamental right.

While I hate to admit it, I agree with Surf on this one.

That was my immediate thought as well.

Catholic churches have always had rules about who they will and will not marry.
And as far as I can tell, they've never been sued for it.

(Actually, I think I've made this counter-argument already in this thread. A dozen or two pages back. lol)

Well, I think the mere fact that the Catholic church doesn't let women be priests is evidence that there is little legal foothold to sue the church.

Default Never thought of Nebraskans as hateful people ...

Is it just me ... Or is anyone else just utterly exhausted of hearing people who don't get what they want, accusing anyone who disagrees with them of hate. .. Sometimes a request is considered, and the answer is simply ... NO.
