    I think the real issue is, as a non-partisan court, who represent all Americans, they may find it difficult to agree that the US Constitution forbids gay/lesbian marriage. Even though I don’t agree with gay/lesbian marriage, as the Bible seems very clear in its point of view which as Lutheran Christians we do our best to understand and follow, it may not be unconstitutional.

    The “secular” state can legislate what they want as they represent all, not just Christians. However, on the other hand, they also are supposed to represent us Christians too. So what I believe the correct answer for them to be is that they’d allow gay/lesbian marriage, but NOT require churches/mosques, business, or individuals to be forced to participate in a marriage ceremony/reception that violates their religious beliefs. That respects our beliefs, yet respects the other sides belief too.

    Thank you LCMS and Pastor Harrison for standing in the gap! We cannot let the antichrist world system dictate our morality. We as laymen and women must be more active in helping our clergy–we must hold up their arms as Aaron held up the arms of Moses during a critical battle! We are citizens in a republican Constitutional government in which we HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY to pray for, research, elect, and support God fearing leaders–leaders who will be constrained by the Judeo Christian principles America was founded upon. If we do not do our part, we will be ruled by ungodly tyrants, which is fast becoming our reality today.

    We must realize something–if the Supreme Court validates same sex marriages, the Churches will be accused of discrimination and federal /hate crimes if they refuse to marry these couples. And what about our Lutheran School System? Will we be forced to hire homosexual teachers ? At the least we will lose our 501 c3 status and at the worst, the Churches will have to go underground.

    IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP!!! PRAY FOR AMERICA AND SUPPORT FAITHFUL PASTORS WHO PREACH THE WHOLE WORD OF GOD!!
