And so it begins. Denmark has become the first (but likely not the last) western nation to force churches to participate in gay weddings. This should come as no surprise, as the socialist nations of the West have been moving in this direction for years — and yes, I’m talking about America too.
For other evidence, we can observe none other than our good friends in England, who recently passed a law allowing churches to “opt-out” of performing gay weddings. This might sound good, “See, they let churches choose!”, but don’t get too happy yet. The law is being challenged as Britain’s gay community believes homosexual couples should have the right to marry in whatever church they please.
Make no mistake, the USA is also moving in this direction. Over the last couple of years we’ve seen more and more Christian businesses sued for refusing to participate in gay wedding ceremonies. The next logical step is for them to sue so that they can marry in the church… just as they are doing in Europe now.
Sadly, it seems that it may only be a matter of time before Christians who refuse to participate in gay wedding ceremonies will be forced to meet in unrecognized, “underground” churches…
The country’s parliament voted through the new law on same-sex marriage by a large majority, making it mandatory for all churches to conduct gay marriages.
Denmark’s church minister, Manu Sareen, called the vote “historic”.
“I think it’s very important to give all members of the church the possibility to get married. Today, it’s only heterosexual couples.”
Under the law, individual priests can refuse to carry out the ceremony, but the local bishop must arrange a replacement for their church…
