Dave Brownlow on Civil Rights
Constitution Party Senate Challenger
A: God intended for marriage to be between a man and a woman. However, there is nothing stopping˙churches from marrying˙gays today, which has happened many times over the years --without most of us knowing or caring. This˙is not to say I support gay church weddings,˙I simply want the government to get out of the marriage licensing business. And, I do not want to be forced to subsidize or sanction their˙behavior.
A: I do not support churches marrying gays, but the 1st amendment prohibits the government from regulating church issues.˙ Therefore, I would not support any legislation that regulated church marriages,˙church building programs, church political activities, charitable activities etc. If we fix our tax system to adhere to the Constitution, there would be˙no need for special tax benefits for married heterosexuals either because there would be no tax on our incomes.
A: DO NOT SUPPORT--unless outright discrimination is happening in the workplace, the government should stay out of employment decisions.
A: DO NOT SUPPORT--there are already numerous protections against discrimination. As long as homosexuals are not asking for special rights or consideration, we should let them live out their lives any way they choose.
NO MARRIAGE LICENSE + NO TAX BREAKS + NO GOVERNEMNT CONTROL = NOBODY CARES! Why does everything have to be done the hard way?
As usual, we waste a massive amount of effort fighting the symptom rather than trying to figure out what is causing the problem--which is that whatever we let the government license, the governmen will also regulate. Is it any wonder this has turned into a total circus? The proper solution is to get the government completely out of the marriage licensing business and let the churches handle it.
Scripture, common sense, as well as the anatomic realities, makes it undeniably clear that men were designed to procreate with women. (Well, duh!) However, if a particular church wants to break the rules & make a mockery of the natural order of things, there is no need to get all shook up over it.
