Yes! Finally. People who realize that Democracy sucks when its used to trample the rights of the minority.
Which isn't what Democracy is, so you can't use it in that way anyway.
There are many forms of democracy, but democracy at its purest is 2 wolves and a lamb deciding what's for dinner.
We are a republic, but when an issue is put to popular vote that's democracy, and in the case of these marriage amendments democracy is used to pick on a minority.

CAN I GET AN AMEN?

There's something funny about amen-ing an essentially sober argument.

I'm not a religious person, but I'd park by butt in his church every Sunday if this is his normal style of preaching.
I'm an athiest, absolutely demoralized by the backwardness and religious tyranny of my home state, and I posted this fucking thing

If it's between fear and ignorance or calm and reason, always bet on the fear and ignorance winning out... at least until things get so bad there's no way to ignore it anymore.

Actually, the correct question is: "Given that acceptance of homosexuality among the majority of Americans is inevitable as the elderly die off, do you really want to have the state deciding church matters when the gays take over?"
Because we will gay marry you fuckers out of spite. You'll be wishing you had a separation of church and state then. We'll call it the Gaypocalypse.

It's almost like conservatives *want* to go backwards!

A church pastor should not be convincing his/her congregation to vote for/against ANY amendment or ballot issues, regardless of whether or not we agree with it. It's the same exact problem of church leaders telling their congregations TO vote for an issue.
It violates the separation of church and state, and they risk their 501(c)(3) status by doing so. He should know better.
The ironic thing is that he's making a valid constitutional and legal point, but in the wrong context. On a more personal note, I don't want someone who believes in an invisible bearded man who lives in the sky to start making rational arguments for us.
HA. I'm dumb. This was actually at a press conference.
Let the mocking commence.
it doesn't matter anyway, every fucking pastor, priest, imam and level 50 cleric politicks from the pulpit anyway and if anyone ever tried to stop them the weepfest shitstorm would bury the united states faster than a nukkake bomb
FYI, as far as 501(c)(3) goes ... turns out the IRS has restrictions against endorsing candidates, but not against endorsing issues. From IRS publication 557:
Political activity. If any of the activities (whether or not substantial) of your organization consist of participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office, your organization will not qualify for tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3). Such participation or intervention includes the publishing or distributing of statements.
Whether your organization is participating or intervening, directly or indirectly, in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office depends upon all of the facts and circumstances of each case. Certain voter education activities or public forums conducted in a nonpartisan manner may not be prohibited political activity under section 501(c)(3), while other so-called voter education activities may be prohibited.

Finally, a Christian who realizes their goddamned fucking batshit retarded death cult is on its way out, so has to pretend to be a human being rather than a reptoid baby raper for once.
dang, you could give him a little more face-value credit than "pretend to be a human being"

I was not expecting that.
