What Crazy Christians Got Wrong About Gay Marriage

Sympathize

It’s been over a year since gay marriage was legalized in all 50 states. How many right wing predictions about marriage equality have come true since then? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Sunday marked the first anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark marriage equality decision, which, if Religious Right activists were to be believed, was to usher in a horrible tyranny that would lead to mass deaths and war.

Of course, the Right’s doomsday predictions about what would happen if same-sex marriage became legal nationwide were totally unfounded, and only a tiny contingent of conservativescame to a protest the ruling in Washington, D.C., this weekend.

While the conservative movement certainly hasn’t given up on the fight against LGBT rights and is thrilled by Donald Trump’spromise to appoint anti-LGBT judges who would oppose the marriage ruling, many activists have once again shown that they are more interested in stirring up fears about the LGBT community than in the facts.

Here are just five of the craziest predictions that conservative politicians and pundits made about Obergefell v. Hodges, all of which are yet to come true.”

    edit: more christian and gay marriage talk? this is some lazy news. TALK
    ABOUT THE WORLD NEWS.

      They believe that because they viewed certain bad sectors of Christians
      bullied this nation into believing these false ideologies, it is their
      right to bully them back and summarize Christians as a whole. My issue
      is–what does that accomplish? I thought that the left agenda was about
      tolerance and anti-bullying?

    • AIdan Moravec
      July 14, 2016 at 11:25 PM

      It’s not christian bashing. The title clearly refers to “crazy christians”,
      meaning those who were and are still against gay marriage. This means that
      if you’re christian and not against gay marriage then they’re not
      criticizing you, so take a chill pill.

    • Bolg-Gro-Markarth

      +AIdan Moravec ur right. but there is more stuff happening around the
      world. why isn’t he focusing on that. he has talked way too much about gay
      marriage and christianity together. I couldn’t watch the whole video since
      it was so predictable. republicans, gays something something hell and cenk
      rants.

      Well, the US is a secular nation, so our understanding of the Christian
      faith is entirely separate from our understanding of US law, as should
      yours be.

      +bulldogsbob Washing’ton’s personal faith was just that. Our founder’s
      believed strongly in separation of church and state. It is what it is. You
      cannot legislate morality in this country based on your personal beliefs.
      That’s why we are called a democracy.

      Response of a classic liberal. ” They won’t bake the cake because of their
      outdated, and childish ideology.”

      “Muslims is not the religion of peace, are ignorant, and needs to catch up
      to modern society.”

    I’m not religious, so save your moral high ground bull. One of the things
    people feared about gay marriage is that the government would legally force
    people (at the hand of gun) to participate in gay marriages. Which has
    happened.

      been rude or disrespectful to gays or lesbians explain that don’t call out
      an entire religion and belittle things in their religion or condemn them as
      evil and stupid i personally was disappointed and offended

      +Luke Cleland + Then why do western pastors come over to these countries
      and show approval for these disgusting homophobic acts? Matter of fact why
      are missionaries still a thing? They dont teach the “reformed” christianity
      to these countries, that is why they end up this way. Its not that
      christianity was reformed , it is that it was rejected, that is why western
      countries started becoming more progressive. I am not “defending” islam
      because I agree there should be reform. I am saying that there is BOTH
      Christian and islamic extremism and it is very hypocritc for anyone to
      criticize one over the other ( on both liberal or conservative sides).

    There is no such thing as Gay Marriage. Marriage is between a man and
    woman. So by the mere fact they have to had the Gay part in from of it only
    tells me it is a farce.

      +PumpkinsnBlackcats You can always enter into something that is moral and
      it does not work out for any number of reasons. It makes no sense to enter
      into something immoral because it can never be right.

      +Schtuppit I am glad that people realize that there is something wrong with

      normal marriage at the very least.

    • Seth the Wicked
      July 14, 2016 at 11:16 AM

      What did Muslim religious leaders in America think about gay marriage prior
      to the SCOTUS ruling? I mean you seem to care an awful lot about their
      beliefs so I’m sure you know first hand. And after that we can go over the
      beliefs of Wiccans, Hindus and Sikhs in terms of gay marriage in America.

    • THEEVANTHETOON
      July 14, 2016 at 11:32 AM

      I don’t know. Maybe because the vast majority of opposition to gay marriage
      in this country was coming from right-wing Christians?

    • nictro
      July 14, 2016 at 1:31 PM

      what did the fundamentalist Jews say? who cares, they’re not the ones
      leading the opposition, the Christians are.

      Actually the western world is crumbling. The present day debt of the
      western world is six times the yearly economic output of the entire world.
      There is no austerity plan, no restructuring of the monetary system that
      can solve or save the coming collapse. There are riots, mass murders,
      economic, social and political upheaval in every western country. There is
      a social malaise, a directionless, and a nihilistic attitude
      pervading society at large fueled by the media. The sudden shock when the
      inevitable collapse comes will be devastating. The left as always will be
      successful in their destruction.

    So regarding the ones who say they want to flee America because of gay
    marriage; where will they flee to, Canada ? Gay Marriage is legal here too.
    Also it has more secular laws and public Anti Gay preaching is officially
    recognized as hate speech by the law.

    • SwoobatFanatic
      July 14, 2016 at 3:47 PM

      I’m certainly no fan of anti-gay preaching, but I still don’t agree that it
      should be banned by law. It’s stupid and counterproductive to ban speech
      that you don’t like, since it just gives them a victim complex excuse.

    • Christopher Case
      July 14, 2016 at 5:20 PM

      +SwootbatFanatic If I remember correctly, they didn’t take it well but had
      since shut up about it.

    • SwoobatFanatic
      July 14, 2016 at 6:57 PM

      +Christopher Case Well they were right to not take it well, frankly. You
      can’t ban what someone is saying just because you don’t like it. The
      gay-hating Christians may be complete and utter trash, but they have the
      same right to freedom of speech as everyone else, no matter how offensive
      that speech is.
