On #religiousfreedom and #gaymarriage

For my slightly right of center friends who are still sucking down Pepto Bismol after today’s Supreme Court ruling:

You are conflating “right to religious principles” with wanting the rest of the world to be submissive to your religious narrative. Today’s decision doesn’t tell religious people how to relate to their “god.” What it does is say how the State should relate to those who choose to be a part of an institution, marriage, created by the State; an institution for which a citizen needs a license issued by the State before they can partake in it. Gay marriage doesn’t stop people from sending telepathic messages to Shango, Thor, Jah, Jehovah, or Odin….

It’s ironic that some churchgoers are more concerned about a section of the populace that want to enjoy increased inclusion in American society at no cost to the majority versus a small but dangerous portion of the populace that walks into churches and kill people because they believe that a certain race shouldn’t be a part of American society….

….the irony ….
