I assume that a rational Supreme Court would shoot something like this down as a violation of the First Amendment. 

Even in Europe, Churches are not required to perform gay marriages.

Everyone knows this is coming.  They will not be happy until the churches either relent, or are shut down.

For the left, the whole issue has always been an end run on the 1st Amendment; a way to outlaw Christianity.

It'll not be shot down - The European Court of Human Rights has a long history of questionable or downright ridiculous decisions.

To use an analogy I like, this case is like suing Pizza Hut for not selling you a Big Mac.

"Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."  -  President Donald J Trump

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
...They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age. Plus BIG border security
