Same-sex marriage fight not going away

May 23, 2013

The same sex marriage law passed in Delaware has a caveat allowing churches, priests and ministers from having to officiate at same sex weddings if against their principles.

The state of California passed same sex marriage and the electorate objected. They placed the issue on the ballot and it was overturned by a fairly significant margin.  One couple filed suit with a federal judge and the votes of the citizens of California are now before the Supreme Court.

Prediction: within two years in one of the present states allowing for same sex marriage with the copout provision, a same sex couple who are members of a congregation will sue, stating they are being discriminated against and a federal judge will rule in their favor.  The case will ultimately end up before the Supreme Court.  History shows until all of the fences are taken down, this issue will not be settled.

A day of reckoning is coming and, I fear, the citizens of this country will rue the decisions that have been made.
