My opinion about legislating same sex marriage

If ever I become Senator, I would approve any proposed legislation to allow LGBT to get married, HOWEVER with a special provision that it be allowed only by those who tolerate it, without prejudice to the service provider's rights of refusal. Not everything that is legal can be pushed for consumption down the throat of all - the minister and owner of the business still has rights to conspicuously display a signage that such thing is not allowed in his establishment. Forcing a religious minister to marry a LBGT couple is similar to forcing in pork into the mouth of Muslims, it's gonna result to armed conflict. If a particular minister refuses, then the customer should just find some other minister. I cannot allow a legal charge against those who refuse. This is how my egalitarian ideology puts this issue in proper order.
