This is how i feel on the subject marriage it's not even religious there is nothing magical about it and sure is hell not christian.
You and anyone even me can challenge marriage now vs biblical. Biblical marriage isn't one man one woman you could be married to a lot of people vs one person. 
That and hell historically speaking Classical Europe, China and the middle east of all places had same-sex marriages and unions. That and it wasnt until the middle ages
that the church put it's foot down to say marriage only between one man and one woman for obvious reasons of procreation. We're taking a page from the god damn middle ages and taking a step back. This won't fair well at all for them in 2018  Dodgy

I don't care much for 2018, but the repercussions of these are gonna last for decades

It's hard to know if cases like the cake case are real or just a clever way to deny people equal rights.  I'm always skeptical when I see such issues end up in court.

I honestly don't either. Marriage is now equal under federal law texas has to fuck off and get with the program.

Not with Gorsuch on the SCOTUS. You're really depending on the good sense and taste of Clarence Thomas to reign in the conservative side.

The same conservative side that has been champing at the bit to put homosexuals back onto the second class citizen list.

Um....

Quote:“The Supreme Court held … that the Constitution requires states to license and recognize same-sex marriages to the same extent that they license and recognize opposite-sex marriages, but it did not hold that states must provide the same publicly funded benefits to all married persons,” Texas Justice Jeff Boyd wrote.

Where did Justice Boyd go to law school?  Dachau?  It would take an asswipe Texan to come up with something like that.

And too think Australia just got through giving same sex couples this right . While America flees back to the dark ages . I'm sure some Trump cheerleaders will blather on about how this is not bigotry . But it is and there is no argument they have that it isn't .

Hey you know how it is in Texas: being fat is caused by genetics, but being gay is a choice.

I think it's great that people are standing up to christian bullying, like gays instead of running away to let's say San Francisco.
