Courtesy of Shakesville (thanks), the city of San Francisco and the government of Santa Clara County have just filed another challenge against Proposition 8 in the California Supreme Court (that link might not work correctly). I hope that same-sex couples are eventually allowed the same rights as different-sex couples.
Same-sex marriage does not threaten different-sex marriage. Here in Canada, same-sex marriage has been legal for several years now. My parents were married in the 1970s and are still married now. The legalization of same-sex marriage has not made them any less married, and neither will it do that to you. Allowing it to go here comes the bride, here comes the other bride, is not going to make it illegal for it to go here comes the bride, here comes the groom, nor will it allow here comes the bride, here comes the second bride, here comes the groom. You are not going to be forced to perform weddings against your religion. Following the Golden Rule (if you’re a Christian) would mean we should ban different-sex marriage, but somehow I feel that that isn’t gonna fly. The existence of divorce in no way infringes on the religious freedom of Roman Catholics, and the existence of same-sex marriage will in no way infringe on your religious freedom.
