My band mates know my beliefs. This doesn't change how I feel about them.
Serious question; does this now remove the protection from religious institutions from refusing to perform gay marriage?
I hope not. This should not be a battle with religious institutions or their definition of marriage. It is a battle with the government, and that is how I have always seen it.
But, and someone please correct me if I am wrong, this removes the federal protection on religious institutions to deny people marriage based on sexual orientation. If so then I am rather unhappy with the decision. If not, then I will continue to not care.
