Churches are allowed to practice their religion as they see fit, so the 1st Amendment would protect anyone clergyman who's bigoted enough to think gay marriage is morally wrong.

In fact that clergyman is not bigoted at all. There is no marriage between/for two same sex mates. That is only a sham marriage, totally invalid and not binding.

Furthermore, the whole matter is definitely one of unmistakable moral turpitude. Nothing is moral that involves sodomy.

As for example of Canada, they don't allow much private ownership of handguns, so I wouldn't let that run our lives.

That wouldn't be an example of bigotry, but of recognizing sexual perversion when one sees it.

So a clergyman believing ssm is morally wrong is a "bigot to you. Not someone with just different beliefs than you, but a bigot. In parts of Canada, private religious schools are told by the government that they cannot teach that homosexuality is morally wrong. Tht is what I fear, and what I sense is inevitable.

The Supreme Court decided today it will hear two cases surrouding gay marriage with rulings coming down as Spring 2013. More from POLITICO:

The Supreme Court announced Friday that it will take up same-sex marriage, hearing both a case stemming from California’s Proposition 8 voter-approved ban on gay marriage and a case from New York challenging the constitutionality of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

The pair of moves greatly increase the chances that the justices will rule this term on whether the U.S. Constitution guarantees same-sex couples the right to marry. However,...
