“A Pennsylvania pastor charged under United Methodist law with officiating his son’s same-sex marriage is scheduled to go on trial.”
This is an absolute outrage. Banning same-sex marriage has already been deemed unconstitutional. I don’t recall ever being more offended in my life. If I was the son of Reverend Frank Schaefer, I would want my father to officiate my wedding.
The interesting part about this “trial” is that it will be held at the church’s retreat.
Another problem with their argument is that he officiated the wedding ceremony in 2007. Get over it, people!
There are so many other things in this world that should be focused on.
This is not a good representation of how God says in the Bible to treat people fairly.
I’m disappointed by this specific situation. For others who have faced or are facing the same situation, I am utterly sorry.
A lot of times in society, we hear the “two cents” of every adult and their dog about gay marriage; everyone has an opinion about everything. However, how often do we make a big deal about what children have to say, even about arbitrary things. What about significant topics, such as marriage equality?
Let me tell you, this video is a B I G D E A L!
It’s quite interesting; this generation is becoming more and more accepting of marriage equality and gay people in general than previous generations. It’s true that we still have a long way to go, but we are making steps of progress. For those of you actually reading this, let me know what you think of the video.
This video has surely solidified how strongly I feel about marriage equality. Also, a tear or two may have been shed.
See how children of varying ages react to marriage proposals between people of the same gender!
In case you don’t know whom this lovely woman is, Ruth Ginsburg is a Supreme Court Justice in the United States. She not only supports gay marriage, but she married her two gay friend’s marriage. Thank goodness we have someone like her holding a position in the Supreme Court.
“Ginsburg said equality has always been central to the Constitution…”
This is a crucial point to bring up. I don’t believe everyone realizes how the document our country was founded on distinctly touches on how all people are equal, including gay people.
Ginsburg continues on, “So I see the genius of our Constitution, and of our society, is how much more embracive we have become than we were at the beginning.”
