Kalley Yanta explains it all for you. According to Ms. Yanta, pastors are in peril if they are opposed to marriage equality pointing out that they would be in deep shit in Sweden and Canada. The problem with Ms. Yanta's argument would be rapidly discerned by the average pre-teen. Either Ms. Yanta does not know what country Minnesota is in or she is posing an improbable slippery slope that might as well be the creation of Hieronymus Bosch.

Apparently, the best argument that they have to oppose equality is to point to illogical comparisons that, by the way, aren't even factually accurate. This as they merrily re-write the First Amendment to suit their self-righteous agenda.
If a pastor, religious group or person of faith could not agree with this new definition of marriage than they would find themselves in conflict with the law, and they could face legal consequences. In some other countries like Canada and Sweden, for example, ministers and pastors have been hauled before human rights bodies and even arrested for preaching about their religious views of marriage.
