New York's Same-Sex Marriage Act: Are Laws Against Churches Defense Of The Truth Next?Topics: Faith, Political News and commentaries
The title here posits the wrong question.
As Terry Jeffrey points out in his Townhall piece today, efforts to sanction churches for defending the truth will not be starting now, they have already started. While apologists for New York's same-sex marriage law argue that it includes a religious exemption that protects churches from having to officiate over same-sex marriages and protects them in "taking such action as is calculated by such organization to promote the religious principles for which it is established or maintained" including in its employment practices ... history shows us that it's only a matter of time before the same kind of ideologues who are now pushing same-sex marriage laws begin suing churches in states where same-sex marriage is a "right" because, they argue, the churches have made them victims of "gender discrimination."
In other words, the only question that remains is how soon before the next step begins.
