Gay Marriage and The Supreme Court

One aspect of gay marriage that is not being debated with this week’s Supreme Court cases is the impact gay marriage has on religious liberty.

It’s an issue I explored 4 years ago for American Chronicle. I can’t say my feelings have changed since I wrote that article.

The article was never meant to imply the only legitimate marriages are done in a church. It is an argument that maybe the government should get out of the marriage business entirely and stop bestowing legal and tax preferences to married couples over non-married citizens.

Nor does the article imply the rights of religious organizations should be violated. Unfortunately, the Obama administration’s heavy-handed actions only serve to obstruct needed dialogue.

Nevertheless, the just course is to legalize same-sex marriage, and stop depriving consenting adults from enjoying the same privileges as their heterosexual counterparts.
