A ministry that follows the dictates of its faith is engaging in wrongdoing, according to a New Jersey judge who recommended today that the state Division on Civil Rights find the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association violated the state’s nondiscrimination law.
“The respondent violated the [Law Against Discrimination] when it refused to conduct a civil-union ceremony for Ms. Bernstein and Ms. Paster,” wrote Solomon Metzger, an administrative law judge whose determination will become final if not overturned by the Division of Civil Rights.
“Respondent opposes same-sex unions as a matter of religious belief, and in 2007 found itself on the wrong side of recent changes in the law.”
The seaside location has been popular for years for weddings, but the association, which is affiliated with the United Methodist Church, determined it could not biblically allow same-sex ceremonies to take place on its property.

Excuse me “Judge”, but where do you get off trumping the First Amendment.
Now the Dead Old White Guys discovered “religious tolerance” not out of some love for their fellow man, but for their distrust of other colonies. Best way to start a war is to argue over “religion”. So those smart Dead Old White Guys put “religion” out of bounds.
How can any religion be on the wrong side of the “law”?
If the law mandates this, then it is unconstitutional on its face and should be struck down.
What’s next forcing Catholics to participate in abortions?
Oh yeah, “they” are doing that now.
