Gay marriage in Britain and America: Is the right to disagree being eroded?
However, there is a danger that while one freedom is granted, another is taken away. California, Iowa, Maine, and Massachusetts have no provision in their gay marriage statues for religious officials to be able to decline to perform services for these couples. It is possible in these places that a church could be forced to provide services related to a gay marriage ceremony completely against their will. While this does sound like a theoretical problem, it has had some real world consequences.
Cake shops and florists in several states have been subject to boycotts, legal attacks, and even death threats for their refusal to provide services for gay wedding ceremonies. In Washington, Arlene's Flowers, operated by Barronelle Stuzman declined to provide flowers for the wedding of Rob Ingersoll and Curt Freed, his partner of nine years.

I suppose that now the end grows closer we must expect that Satan and his followers will increase in size and in activity. The signs of the times.
US and UK society grows more vile and the abomination is definitely defiling the land as the prophecy states. Lev 18:24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
The US and UK are defiled and God sends iniquity upon these nations. Yes this prophecy is taking shape in western nations today.
30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.
John Y, my answer to your question would be that they are the enemy of God, that's why.
Mr. B, spot on. What's more sad, is that more, and more churches are accepting sodomy. There is a church in Shreveport La, 60 miles from where I live called "simple church", and they accept you however you are gay, straight, child molester, whatever. They don't preach against any of that just Jesus loves you drivel. Not only that, one week they read out of the Bible, the next the book of Mormon, and other heretical writings. The duck dynasty people spoke there last weekend, so that sealed the deal for me: they are definitely not true Christians going to that ministry of Satan. What sad times these are.
They want tolerance but they are the most intolerant, they disagree with those against what they want but no one can disagree with them without being crucified by this immoral faction of society in cohortswith this anti Christ government. Everything we know and love about America has changed for the worst . They also love to use the " god loves me and I can do what I want " line. Then they call you a " hater" which is the furthest thing from the truth, we call it what God calls it , sin, We love you but don't have to accept and embrace what you do . Example , my brother was a murderer , do I love him? Yes, did I like what he did ? No. Don't think for one second God is going to excuse sin. You cannot live like you want here and expect to live in eternity up there.
Pretty sickening. They want to be left alone, but they actively work to disrupt, condemn, and take legal action against anyone who even dares to say that their disgusting lifestyle is wrong. They got their way...gay is ok, even glamorous, they can now marry (yuck), but it's not enough. They have become so litigious that business owners, churches, etc, are on high gaurd already, and who knows how future laws to protect these people will play out. Amazing to think that not long ago, these people were hidibg in their closets and that sodomy was considered a mental disorder.
