Quick! To the voting booths everyone! The gays are storming your churches, your synagogues, your mosques demanding to be married!
Last time this was the whip-up-the-vote issue, I had an acquaintance tell me that she was voting for whoever was against gay marriage because her pastor had told her that if "the law" was allowed, they would be "forced" to perform gay weddings in her church.
I asked her, "Is your pastor now required to marry anyone who asks?"
"No," she replied, "you have to take his pre-marital classes before he agrees to marry you."
"And he wouldn't be able to say no to a gay couple?"
"Not if the law passes."
I was going to try to explain to her that her pastor's right to refuse to marry a couple on any grounds wouldn't be affected by a gay couple being allowed to enter in to a civil union (I know a gentleman who was denied marriage at his fiancee's church because she is white and he is hispanic), but my head hurt too bad.
