Lesbians to sue Church for Discrimination

July 9, 2007

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?

    I guess private organizations don’t have a right to abide by their own principles anymore. How ridiculous. Good post. Keep blogging!

    I think that’s what bothers me the most. I don’t care that gays and lesbians want some sort of equal rights under the eyes of the law… I do, however, care that they are trying to demand equal rights under the eyes of God, which is nobody’s business, especially not the government’s business. This goes back to the inability to leave well-enough alone. They fight their battles against the government and then don’t stop there. They then go against the church and demand that the church accept them, even if it’s against what the church believes. Is it fairness or is it going too far?

    If the churches want to accept gay and lesbian unions, then that is their choice. There should be no ground for the government to step in and force them. What’s next? They might as well start legally forcing individuals to accept them and ensure that every straight person – whether or not they accept the gay lifestyle – to have at least x number of gay friends…

    “…to have at least x number of gay friends…”

    i wouldn’t be surprised if this was on their minds already. here’s to hoping the case gets thrown out of court, simply because the organization Methodist or otherwise can decide who they allow to get married on their property.

    From Mrs. Pink Eyes, God gave us free will shortly after we were created. If we choose to follow God’s will, The Bible is the best seller!This is the Word of God,and will tell you all about it.Anyway if we choose to follow God’s will and believe His son Jesus Christ died for our sins and we are all sinners. no one is exempt Jesus Christ was without sin even though He had all human frailties. He was tempted, persecuted, beaten, and yet He remained without sin.Jesus died a criminals death and He went willingly to follow the will of His Father. No human is without sin yes even Mary and the pope have sinned. Sorry about this tangent.If you truly believe in your heart and God knows your heart you will have eternal life! Homosexuality is a sin. Following Jesus has to be definite and absolute a pastor cannot go against God’s will! The Bible says we will be persecuted for our belief and I for one will gladly take it like a Christian! Look at what a pit this world is God does know best. He has no boundaries He knows the future He created it! He knows whats best and He loves us.He wants everyone to enter His Kingdom. Every minute of every day is a chance to repent of of our sins and see God loves us Believe me His promise is good. Glory to God!
