    It’s a shame how our Govt. is disrespecting others of faith by allowing a tarishing of the definition of “Marriage” to suit others. Marriage is AND WILL ALWAYS BE REGARDLESS OF WHAT OUR GOVERNMENT SAYS is a church sacrament between a MAN & A WOMAN. How selfish of these gays to slap poeple of faith in the face with this fraud-calling “marriage”. It should ONLY be called a CIVIL UNION.

    Our govt. in RI has BETRAYED us in the last two years: Giving slaps on the wrists of pot posessors, tearing down prayer banners and manipulating church sacrament terminology to favor a selective group of poeple.

    We are no longer a state or nation of equality; We are a state and nation of favoritsm. Poeple of faith are being treated less of a member of this nation–Raping us of our church sacraments, money and taxes to feed a secular world.

    Why not just go all the way and legalize prostitution, beastality and phedophilia?

    RI is so desperate that they will do ANYTHING to generate $$$$$–regardless of morals.

    What a disgusting state. It’s like Sodom and Gommorea brought to the USA.

      So based on your rant it’s safe to assume you only like government favoritism when it benefits Christian churches.

      1. Eric says:

        …And were do you see govt. favoritism for churches? And I am NOT just speaking of just “Christian Churches”, there are MANY denominations of religion that hold the sacrament of a man and a woman being exclusive to marriage.

        We are to have a freedom of religion in this country, not a freedom FROM religion.
