Prop. 8 Decision: Constitutional protection for all: separation of church and State
Original post made by Timothy Gray, Charleston Meadows, on Feb 7, 2012
I hope that the value of equal rights for all, stands supreme.
To opponents I point out: your church may not recognize gay marriage, however marriage under the eyes of the law, which carries with it many rights and priveleges under the law, MUST be recognized.
To set the law according the the standards of religion would be a clear violation of the separation of church and State -- the constitution doesn't just protect the rights we like. Liberty and Justice for all. Period.
I hope the Courts and fair-minded people of Goodwill will share this clarity.
