Please correct me if I am wrong, but the Supreme Court’s ruling did not and cannot compel churches to marry homosexuals. It just means that some low-level bureaucrat must issue a marriage license for a ceremony performed by that official or an Internet certified “holy person.”
It marries them in the eyes of the government, not in the eyes of God. It’s essentially like a driver’s license.
Since the government and law confer certain benefits on married persons, they must be equally available to all. I do not denigrate the homosexual bond, I’m sure there is love.
But it will never be equivalent to the marriage of a man and a woman.
