How exactly are Christians claiming persecution by the repeal of DOMA?


I hear all the time that the homosexuals are "forcing their agenda" on others, and that Christians are being forced too accept them, and I can't figure out how. No one its forcing any churches to perform same sex marriages. No one is forcing you to attend a same sex wedding. Gay people are asking for no special rights. They want the same exact rights that you have - no more, no less. I get that your holy book is against it, but you do not get to make laws for everybody based on your religion. So what's the problem?

    A guy at my office today was giving us the "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" routine. I said, "What are you, twelve?"

    I agree with you. no one should be able to force someone to perform a ceremony if it is against their religious convictions, but I've never heard of a story when they did. Do you have a link to an article or something?

    how exactly is the media forcing the agenda by, i don't know, covering the news? The supreme court decisions today on DOMA and Prop 8 were news. Fox conveniently ignored it for several minutes, but it's still news.
