Spleen Cringe US Supreme Court sez Yes to Gay Marriage (199* d) RE: US Supreme Court sez Yes to Gay Marriage 08 Jul 15

Sorry, Greg! I do think when someone comes out with a weird and meaningless suggestion implying gay marriage discriminates against Christians, though, the least they can do is enlighten us as to what on earth they're on about... I suspect he means that if people in positions of trust - like registrars - refuse a service to customers because of their sexuality, and in doing so put themeslves in breach of their employment responsibilities, then it's somehow discrimination if they are held to account for their actions.

When you have a job, you can't pick and choose according to your personal political or religious opinions (and I'm of the view that a lot of these so-called religious objections are entirely politically motivated). I'm a social worker. A proportion of my service users have quite virulently racist and homophobic views. I'd rather not hear them, but I'm there to work with people on their mental health and social care needs, not to police the shit they come out with. They get the same level of service, therefore, as anyone else. I'd suggest that regardless of their remarkably unchristian 'Christian' views, these registrars need to show a bit of professionalism in the workplace. If they are unable to do this, its probably time to start looking around for another job. Preferably one where the general public don't have to deal with them. Drainage clerk, or something.
