Evangelical Protestant Churches are not the only churches that will refuse to permit homosexual marriage ceremonies in their church buildings but the Catholic Church will also refuse to permit homosexual marriage ceremonies in their church buildings.
I agree that Francis advisor is an ignoramus. Francis is totally off of his rocker and needs to resign and be replaced with a conservative who is against abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control and will tell the Archbishops to tell Catholics who support abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control to either fall in line with Catholic teaching and be against abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control or be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.

Well if the Supreme Court rules that fruitcake marriage should be legal in all 50 states the Catholic Church will most certainly not go along with performing fruitcake marriage ceremonies in the Catholic Church.

And how do you know the Supreme Court will rule that fruitcake marriage should be legal in all 50 states? They could rule correctly that it should be left to each state to decide if fruitcake marriage should be legal or not. I am not going to assume anything about what the Supreme Court will rule.
A Non Denominational Church is church. So Osteen's organization is an Evangelical Protestant Church. Osteen teaches that salvation comes only through trusting in Jesus alone for salvation. In every service that Osteen has he has at the end an opportunity for individuals to embrace Jesus as their Personal Savior and become saved.
Christian owned businesses should start putting signs up stating they can refuse service to anybody for any reason. That should put a stop to the fruitcakes demanding service from Christian owned businesses.

I mean , I think christian thought, ministries , colleges, or anything regarding fail will be persecuted beyond measure. I personally think it best we go dark. I would be delighted if everyone got off fb, watching that or twitter end would be a step in the right place. Going dark will allow marriages to flourish and families to benefit. I just think we are at the point where even commenting on your stories will need to go quiet. Thoughts are as dangerous as violence and serving God instead of Caesar is a terrorist movement. To those in farther reaches of babylon, God be with you all and good night.
What makes you believe the United States Supreme Court will rule that fruitcake marriage should be legal in all 50 states? They could decide correctly that it should be left up to each state whether to make fruitcake marriage legal or not.
Jim Lincoln wrote: kjg, adultery isn't something you can sweep under the rug, it is extremely serious part of an unofficial summary I wrote for, Wise Men Live Out God's Wisdom (Wise Men Live Out God's Wisdom) Though I would think this pastor, if he sincerely asks for the congregation's forgiveness, he could never be restored to the pastoral staff, perhaps as part of the support staff--but his actions make him unfit permanently for a pastoral role, also q.v., Bitter Consequences
This will come as a shock to you Jim Lincoln, but I am agreeing with what your minister stated in that statement you provided.

Why do you think Jehovah's Witness, Mormonism and Judaism are called Cults? It is because they don't worship Jesus as God. And since the RCC worships Jesus as God then it is not a Cult. Don't you think that if the Holy Spirit believes the RCC is a Cult that He would have guided Luther to believe the RCC is a Cult? The late D. James Kennedy Presbyterian minister from Fort Lauderdale, Florida under the guidance of the Holy Spirit stated the definition of a Cult is a religious organization that does not worship Jesus as God. Nobody in their right mind believes the RCC is a Cult. It has a combination of Christian and false doctrines.
