Quote from: Mike Cl on June 28, 2015, 11:38:09 PMI don't think any church will be forced to marry anybody they don't want to--and that includes gays. A gay couple can always get a civil marriage.

Quote from: SGOS on June 29, 2015, 06:50:05 AMA wedding in a Church is a extremely popular ritual. Atheists are the notable exception, but I suspect most gays are not atheists.

They may now feel that based on this decision, they have that right. Some will want it because they always have. A minority few will want it as a "fuck you" to the church - either way, get your popcorn, this should be good!
Quote from: TomFoolery on June 29, 2015, 08:50:52 AMI would think that many gays don't attend churches that hate them.
Quote from: SGOS on June 29, 2015, 10:38:27 AMThat would make sense logically, but it may be problematic for say a gay person born and raised, for example, as a Catholic. Throwing off the religious indoctrination is not that easy, and many religions teach it a sin to convert to something else. I could see a gay Catholic wanting to be married in the Church of his birthright.
