I'm so sorry, ElleBee. Strep is really serious in an adult, isn't it? (I had chronic strep throat as a kid but outgrew it. I must be full of antibodies!) Please feel better soon...
Back OT, I support the right of any church to determine whom it will marry and who may use its facilities. To my knowledge, nobody is even questioning such things in civil rights terms.
Whether the Catholic Church, say, can deny equal rights to employees is another matter. I'm not sure how that issue has been handled in states with non-discrimination laws and marriage equality. I see no reason why they should get a special right to judge an employee's personal life.
Thanks, strep is icky no matter what age...but it is the one time I welcome antibiotics.
I agree that a church has a right to decide it's own tenets and interpretations.
I would never expect to bully a church into doing something for me that they found against their beliefs. But also I would expect a church not to impress their beliefs on the relationships of anyone not asking to be married in their church.
Live and let live.
