Paper on churches withdrawing from marriage if same sex marriage is introduced

We had what seemed to be a very well-received conference on Religious Freedom in a Multicultural World on Friday; we hope to make audio and possibly some video available soon, which I will mention here. In the meantime, for those who are interested, the paper I presented is available here. I hasten to add that regular readers of this blog will experience, as the recently deceased Yogi Berra used to say, “deja vu all over again”, because much of the content was taken from some blog posts and interaction with my friend John McClean. But I have added some more material at the beginning setting the scene, and hopefully bringing it all together into one spot will be useful.
