In a web piece published today, Jim Antle looks at the direction the gay marriage debate is taking. What’s at stake? Thomas Peters finds two clear examples of gay marriage infringing on religious liberty — one in the UK, and one in San Francisco. Whatever your thoughts on the issue, the inevitable collision between legalized gay marriage and religious freedom must be taken into consideration. In both cases that Peters catalogues, the tension is between Catholic adoption services, who refuse to allow gay couples to adopt their charges, and state anti-discrimination laws, which require that they must. This has already played out in Massachusetts, where the Catholic Relief Services responded by ending their adoption services instead of compromising their principles.
