Can I just take a moment to say:
I told you so.
Because I really really did.
The Church of England’s greatest fear over the legalization of gay marriage is about to be realized. A gay couple said he and his partner will go to court to force the church to host gay weddings.
“I am still not getting what I want,” Barrie Drewitt-Barlow told the Essex Chronicle. “It upsets me because I want it so much – a big lavish ceremony, the whole works, I just don’t think it is going to happen straight away.”
The British government recently passed a law legalizing gay marriage – but included a measure to protect churches from legal action.
How many times have I heard from a pro-“marriage equality” moron on tumblr or facebook or twitter that I was attacking a “strawman” argument.
“You’re being ridiculous, gay people would never sue a church to force them perform a gay marriage ceremony.”
Before you even start, I realize that the connection between church and state is 100% different in Britain that it is in the United States, that’s not the issue here.
The issue is that the claim you made was “gay people wouldn’t do that” and here we are now, right where you said we would never be. Considering the state of most of court system these days, with judges that tend to care more about legislating from the bench instead of upholding the law and the constitution, I can see this happening in our countries future and theirs no guarantee on how the case would play out.
Constitution-Shmontitution. Who cares about that stupid old thing anyway!
The liberal gay community appears more sue-happy than any other minority in this country, it’s only a matter of time.
“I am still not getting what I want” says the gay community.
You do realize that makes you sound like a 3 year old right?
