“This vote on whether we stop the gay-marriage juggernaut in California is Armageddon,” said Charles W. Colson, the founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries and an eminent evangelical voice, speaking to pastors in a video promoting Proposition 8. “We lose this, we are going to lose in a lot of other ways, including freedom of religion.”
Can someone tell me how — even theoretically — gay marriage in California in any way threatens the constitutional guarantee of "freedom of religion"?
That statement only makes sense if one equates "religion" with "oppression". Which I do not, and I don't think anybody else does either.
