IFI's Laurie Higgins uses President's *civil marriage* view to deny him his faith

by Jeremy Hooper

The Illinois Family Institute's Culture Analyst, Laurie Higgins:

"To say that in order to treat people with respect and dignity, society has to eliminate sexual complementarity from the definition of marriage actually contravenes the teachings of Jesus, whom Obama publicly claims to serve," she points out. [ONN]

Because you all heard that part where President Obama demanded that churches hold religious ceremonies for same-sex couples. Right?

Wait, what's that? You say that no, that never happened? In fact, you're telling me that President Obama has actually repeated, over and over again, that churches have the right to make their own determinations? And you're also telling me that religious ceremonies, whether Jesus-based or not, are *always* an option for *every* couple entering into a state-recognized union, with churches already having the right to deny any kind of couple for just about any reason (something that will not change)?

Huh. Interesting. If what you're saying is true, then It almost as if Laurie wants to deceive people. What a weird thing for a Christian to do. Maybe I should call a few Illinois lawmakers [(217) 782-2000] and ask them if they know why.
