    When the courts agreed that people should marry regardless of there sexual orientation...that was not a ruling against religion. That was a ruling against states that banned same sex couples from marrying. Religious people can still ban same sex people from marrying. Their religious right is still intact.

    No, it is not. No one is being punish for their views, and it is dishonest (not to mention revealing a persecution complex) to say they are.

    This is not actually characteristic of most religious people. It is just that those are the ones we hear from all the time.

    However, it's very possible that a person reviewing candidates for a social work position will not hire someone who shares such opinions, out of concern that the person will be incapable of providing the requisite level of social services for gay-parented families. This is a legal practice, so smart people will not share opinions online if it can compromise their future employment opportunities.
    Would it be right to not hire a Social Worker because they were a Christian? Should this also include other religions that believe marriage is between one man and one woman? It could be Muslims and Jews colleges would ban from their Social Worker programs because they believe marriage is between one man and one woman
    Thanks from George Meyers

    Then the colleges need to do interviews on potential students to see where they stand on certain issues. Maybe ban Christians, Muslims and Jews from taking their social worker programs

    No, religious people cannot ban same sex people from marrying unless its in their churches.

    Their views are called discrimination

    No, they are not. This is a tired old lie that will not become true just because you and yours continue to repeat it. It is called an argumentum ad nauseum, I believe, and is a logical fallacy.

    For Pete's sake! Are you still vomiting this crap all over the board? It's been refuted how many times since you began? Oh, that's right almost every single time you bring it up.

    You'd think you would get a clue by now.
