Church v. State

The Supreme Court did not rule in June that same-sex couples have to be married in a church or place of worship.  No one has ever been arrested for refusing to perform a same-sex wedding in a church or place of worship, nor will they ever be.  A marriage license issued by the city, county, or state is not a religious proclamation.


Kim Davis made it about religion not the state.  And lucky for her it is perfectly legal for her church to burn gay couples in effigy on the altar every Sunday if it wants to.  It can pray for them to burn in hell and refuse to even let them in the door. The government, on the other hand,  is not allowed to deny gay couples a marriage license. Everything’s separate, as it’s always been.

We don’t live in a theocracy, Ms. Davis.  You’re thinking of Iran.
