We finally returned the rights of LGBT couples to marry that prop 8 took away several years ago. Not only did we get that back but we got DOMA too! (Defense of Marriage Act) which was ruled unconstitutional. Now our LGBT loved ones don’t have to worry about filing taxes as single people if they are married in California! It also affords so many other rights that we as straight people take for granted.
No! churches are not being forced to marry our LGBT loved ones as the Catholic, Mormon and Fundamentalist churches had told their parishioners to get them scared and vote to that right away from LGBT people. There are enough churches out there that will marry LGBT couples, churches that take the word of God to heart and are inclusive of everyone! Churches like the Episcopal church, Lutherans, MCC, United Church of Christ, Unitarian Universalist, etc. etc. red equal sign
