"Gay" "marriages" start in California

In related news, the California Supreme Court ruled that mauve is a primary color, the square root of 20 is 91208, circles are square, and squash is "yummilicious."

Seriously, if sanity doesn't rule this November, any and every Christian organization in California should brace for concerted, heavy financial impact. Then it will spread to other states.

Sounds like California has been particularly Democratic lately.

But seriously, I do hope that sanity does return in November. Otherwise, the courts will then be burdened with deciding whether the civil rights of same-sex couples trumps the religious liberties of everyone else when they clash.

In Massachusetts, apparently, Catholic Charities shut down their adoption services rather than be forced to "do business" with same-sex "married" couples.

Catholic adoption agencies in the UK are now closing because the alternative is to be forced by new equality laws to place children with homosexual couples. (The Telegraph, 05/06/2008)

A Church of England bishop has been fined for not giving a youth work job to a gay man who had previously been in sexual relationships, although was single at the time. (The Telegraph, 09/02/2008)

Catholic blogger The Anchoress wrote a good post about this. Let same-sex couples marry civilly, but only grant that with the stipulation that the churches will not be forced to compromise their beliefs or be persecuted for them. Real marriage is more than a list of legal protections anyway, and no court ruling will change that.

I'll just have to take the persecution. Not an easy choice, but neither is taking the truth of the Gospel as an afterthought.
The path narrows...

I imagine the 9th Circuit [Kangaroo] Court Of Appeals, the most liberal group of activist judges in the country is just chomping at the bit to rule the state constitutional amendment, if it passes, is itself unconstitution. This will put it straight into the hand of the SCOTUS and by the time they get it, whomever wins in November will be firmly planted in office. And frankly, this current SCOTUS can be an unpredictable bunch although the libs on the SC rule consistently very liberal.
