Lesbians to sue Church for Discrimination
A lesbian couple in New Jersey has filed a complaint against a Methodist-owned campground, claiming illegal discrimination because their request for a civil union ceremony on the property was denied.
This is further proof that gays and lesbian couples will not be happy until they have totally destroyed the religious aspect of marriage. It doesn’t matter that they have all the legal benefits, they even want to have the right to marry on church property. Why should the church wed two people that they don’t believe should be married? What right do the courts have in this case? We have been told there is a separation of church and state, even though that phrase does not appear in the constitution. So how can the courts tell a church who they can and can’t marry?
Brian Raum, ADF senior legal counsel, said enforcing the complaint would intrude on the rights of the Methodists as a religious organization.
“The government shouldn’t force churches to violate their own religious principles,” he said. “Private, religious property owners have the right to decide what can and cannot take place on their property.”
This is just the beginning. There are already stories of New Hampshire co-habitating couples ready to sue for equal rights. Also a story of a polygamist ready to sue for equal rights. Where does it stop?
