and now the storm...

I knew it was a matter of time when my Christian "brethren" would start with outlandish claims and acting ridiculous. It's starting with blaming the victim. They deny me marriage and once the highest court in the land rules in my favor, they say THEY are somehow a victim and it's "open season on Christians" (stated by a Christian lawyer on the 700 Club) because they can't force their anti-gay views of gay marriage on believers who might not agree with them and non-believers in a secular land. Next they say ignore the rulings from the Supreme Court judges (on DOMA, Prop 8) in your actions (stated by Focus On the Family), knowing that is going contrary to Scripture ("Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God" (Ro. 13:1)." "By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth" (Pro. 8:15-16). So basically they're obsession with gays run so deep, in a dying world of the spiritually lost and the physically hungry, they are telling Christians to defy Scripture over it.

The court made the ruling so no one will be forced to engage in any aspect of gay marriage if it's contrary to their religious beliefs, but that doesn't stop Christians from making this false claim, an untrue tactic that worked to pass Prop 8 to begin with. The irony is the only time a court case was filed on the issue of gay marriage and the clergy was a woman who sued her church because they married a gay couple against her wishes, otherwise there never was, never will be, a case of the clergy being forced to marry a gay couple.
