As a practicing Catholic I can't understand why other Christians on this can rant about the Bible and try and twist Gods words againt those they hate.

Well before the print press the church was pretty much the only place with a bible. After the print press you had the protestant revolution and they took the meaning into their own hands leading to a widely diverse interpretation of the scripture.
Roman Catholicism is nothing if not organized. I've been to mass in many different countries where I don't speak the language but could sleep walk through the process. We still take queue from the Vatican. Other Christian faiths area free for all. Some are organized but many are not. You can also bend the US constitution however you like if precedent allowed.
The better question is how did a country founded on separation between church and state let the two become so intertwined in public policy? This is a problem because the Christian majority is trampling any and all minorities starting with the executive branch during GW and the Supreme Court wants nothing to do with presiding over any cases in this realm.
Catholics read the bible in church and look to the Pope for guidance, if they don't like it they say fuck it. I'll go with you on this but not that. For many others it is just a free for all and can be used as a weapon by anyone with misgivings.
I'm a non-practicing catholic. I think religion has no place in governance or workplace decorum. The Supreme Court will ultimately have to come up with a similar ruling though the Roman Catholic Church is the one making it hard at the moment.
LMFAO though, Pope Francis is down with the gays and Scalia still won't come off his hunches. Roberts was a little better during the hearing but Scalia just want give it up despite certain directive from the Vatican to throw in the towel.0
