    Considering he’s telling his story in heaven, I somehow doubt it.

    Well I guess since you’re all locked up and everything Homer, it seems as though that perhaps you have another friendship from the rat that you must take in consideration..

    If you think the rat has an attitude, just be grateful it isn’t a bear!

    Typical misinformation from a bible thumper. The government is not making churches marry gays, and has no interest in doing so, any more than they are interested in making catholic churches marry jews, or synagogues marry muslims. Unless gays can find a progressive church willing to marry them, they must have a justice of the peace perform the ceremony.

    Sigh.

    1 I attended Church schools from elementary all the way to undergraduate level university. Lots and lots and lots of Bibles. Even at university level they wouldn’t let us graduate unless we took theology classes. It is perfectly possible to have lots of Bibles in school… if you are attending privately run schools. In the United States government schools may not have any religious items because they have to serve everyone, not just those who adhere to one religion or another. Everyone who went to my high school, for example, had to go to First Friday masses; we were literally next door to not just a church, but the cathedral. Everyone. Including the Jews. They sat in the back, and didn’t actively participate, but they had to show up. if they didn’t like it, they could bloody well find another school. If I’d gone to a Jewish school I expect that I’d have had to do some Jewish equivalent of First Fridays which would probably have sucked just as bad. The school could do that kind of thing because it was private an our parents had to deliberately pick it and pay (a lot) for it. Government schools can’t do that, there are simply too many religions, they’d get nothing else done. I suspect that you want everyone to do things the way your particular sect of your particular religion wants things done… which would result in all of the rest of us uniting to stomp the living bejesus out of your sect, so be glad that you won’t ever have a chance to do things your way.

    2 the US government does not, and never has, told any church that they must allow so and so to marry. There are churches who still have rules about interracial marriages (they hate them) and about interfaith marriages (they hate them worse); one branch of the Methodists just had a big bro-ha-ha about one of their pastors daring to perform a gay wedding; a substantial subset wanted to toss said pastor out. Indeed, a few years ago a different pastor was heaved out for performing a gay wedding. This time, the Methodists decided not to… and not because the US Gov said so, but rather because of the Voice of the People: a whole lot of parishioners, the people in the pews who pony up the cash which keeps the church running, made it damn clear that if they tossed this particular pastor then the church could kiss goodbye to a lot of parishioners and their money too. Money talks. USG had nothing to do with it. Cash did.

    And that is why ‘gay’ marriage will because a non-issue soon enough. It used to be that there was a majority against it. Now that has changed. The US is, in theory, a democracy (OK, OK, a representative republic, fine, now pipe down) and the Voice of the People is being heard. ‘Tis a pity that you don’t like it, but tough.

    I simply do not see what the problem with ‘gay’ marriage is. I really don’t. And each and every argument that the anti-‘gay’-marriage people put forth reminds me of arguments made against interracial and interfaith marriages. Bigots are bigots, they sprout the same bilge.
