So far, “gay marriage” has restricted the ability of Catholic organizations to perform adoption services. It has coerced Catholic and other Christian agencies into paying for abortion and birth control. It has punished Christians and other business owners who don’t wish to support it. It threatens to boycott any state that does not enforce it. It takes away the religious freedom of dissenters and calls them hateful and homophobic.
And that’s likely only the beginning. “Marriage equality” advocates won’t stop there. If I were a pastor, I’d be worried about being the next target of all this tolerance. After all, some forms of equality are more equal than others.
