Give it time and a liberal judge and churches will go bankrupt defending that right.

Churches HAVE ALWAYS been able to deny marriage to anyone they wanted. Churches WILL ALWAYS be able to deny marriage to anyone they want. Marriage is not an exclusively religious contract. If it were, my heterosexual marriage would not be recognized. Churches can continue to discriminate all they want regarding marriages. The government will no longer be able to. And it is about darn time.

nusenior- you claim marriage and family have been under attack. How is wanting to join the institution attacking it? I would call that supporting it. And you are right- people who want to build families are not the bigots. Those trying to prevent people from legally becoming a family are.

I see NOTHING wrong with gays getting married...and I also see NOTHING wrong with churches saying they do NOT want to marry them...think about it if you are getting married would you want to get married where you are NOT wanted anyway? I don't think GAY couples are gonna want to get mearried in a church where they are not wanted anyway so why worry about it...

Marriage and family has been under attack for many decades. Those who what to build families are not bigots. Unless they limit the definition for family to a man and woman who are married in their church. Which means all other men and women who are married in another church are living in sin. Marriage is both a religious and civil contract churches have the right to set rules the religious contract but not the civil contract.

Too bad our state representative did not have the courage and guts to vote yes. Just once I would like to see him vote against the party line. He is a rubber stamp for the GOP.

Excellent. I've been waiting for an article like this to appear in the Journal. Now we sit back and watch the angry comments.
