Remember when I blindly hated Russel Brand? I fucked up.

"They’re in a better position to judge than I am."

I think this is how most open minded people who value communication, connection, and are willing to learn from others think.

…Did… Did Russel Brand just explain how to react to being called out on something? 

Huh.

The more I see of him the more I’m impressed.

Let me preempt this by saying that I’m gay and I support gay marriage. However I don’t believe that pastors should be forced to administer same-sex marriage ceremonies. Gay marriage has been legal in Idaho for two days and already two minsters are facing fines and jail time for not performing…

Here’s the thing

The city of Coeur d’Alene has an ordinance that prohibits discrimination, including on the basis of sexual orientation, in public accommodations. It does have a religious exemption, but the Hitching Post is a for-profit company, not technically a religious organization, in spite of the Knapp’s deeply held personal beliefs.

A pastor in a religious sense is not being made to marry anyone. The owner(s) of a for-profit business who also happen to be pastors are being made to perform same sex marriages in their public business.

They’ll use the Hobby Lobby case.

If anyone thinks that Christians regard unchastity as the supreme vice, he is quite wrong. The sins of the flesh are bad, but they are the least bad of all sins…. According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil. Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.
