Secular Coalition Rally at the Supreme Court
Tomorrow we stand with the United for Marriage coalition
They claim a coalition of Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists and Americans, but IMO, they should also include us Christians who understand and respect the fact that the United States is a Secular Nation that is Governed was found on the Declaration of Independence and is Governed by a Constitution and a Bill of Rights. While it is true that many of the Founding Fathers were Christian in their beliefs that does not change the fact that each person is free to believe and to practice any beliefs that do not harm others. This is Why If the Supreme Court is True to the Constitution, then they should follow that with Justice for All, Civil Rights for All, Also and Give the Homosexual Americans the Human Right To Marry the person whom they love, which is also a God Given Right, since God Is Love.Starting at 8:30am tomorrow, the Secular Coalition will be outside the U.S. Supreme Court with United for Marriage, a coalition of organizations standing in support of marriage equality. Inside, the Court will hear arguments on Proposition 8, California's prohibition on same-sex marriage.
Millions of Americans are still denied the right to marry, even though support for same-sex marriage in the U.S. is at an all-time high. The main motivating factor behind denying this basic human right is religion. Opponents to marriage equality claim "religious liberty" violations, but the courts have already made clear that "no religious officiant is required to solemnize a marriage in contravention of his or her religious beliefs."The truth is the other religious clause of the First Amendment, the Establishment Clause, is the principle violated by laws like Proposition 8 that ban same-sex marriage. We reminded the Court that "religious rules cannot be written into law" in the brief signed on to by the Secular Coalition and several allied nontheist organizations.
Join us in defending the secular nature of our government by voicing our opposition to the laws of our country furthering discriminatory religious beliefs!
After all, maybe it is me, but I remember back in the day, the worst thing a 'White' girl could do was to bring home a 'Black' Boyfriend--Now, it is this. One day, one day, we shall live up to the Words the end the Gettysburg Address--"It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
I am one who is holding my breath, figuratively speaking, that this nation will have a Second New Birth of Freedom!!!
