Religious freedom? Christian Right group demands govt cut off church that supports gay rights

Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition wants the federal government to end its “Save America’s Treasures Grants” to the National Cathedral because the church decided to perform same-sex marriages. While same-sex marriage is legal in Washington D.C., where the historic Episcopal church is located, the FFC claims that the cathedral is undermining the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and therefore should not receive federal money “until such time that it ceases the practice of homosexual ‘marriage’ certification.”

“Taxpayers are being asked to subsidize gay marriage ceremonies,” the FFC writes, “Pro-family and Pro-freedom Americans will not sit idly by as the government attempts to change the Biblical definition of marriage.”

That’s right, the same FFC which believes Obama is waging a “war on religion” and trampling on “religious liberty” wants the government to cut off its grants to a church due to its opposition to marriage equality.

2. They have huge problems connecting dots

They want the government to punish religions that do not agree with their religious beliefs .......... I would say that these people are complete idiots and god should come down and slap them silly

3. This is a dream come true...I'd love for there to be warfare between religious groups on whose

beliefs are legitimate.
That will really bring home separation of church versus state.

5. I'm a taxpayer....

and I am being forced to subsidize churches that

1) Don't support gay marriage
2) Defend pedophiles
3) Encourage the subjugation of women

So... perhaps I should demand that they not be given any federal money.
