This whole conservative platform is a joke. It is just to lure people in. There will be no advances made in it whatsoever, even with a Trump President and a republican congress. There will be coincidentally, just enough moderate republicans (ie. Olympia Snowe), to stifle it. Sorry, I have been watching this game for over 20 years. What will pass, and be claimed as "conservative victories" are more laws that further advance the police state in this country.

John, it would appear that is the case, but you are incorrect. Most churches have incorporated, usually under section 501c3. Once they have done this they give up their first amendment protections. (They now become a non-profit corporation, controlled by the state). One of the requirements of incorporating is: "the practices and rituals associated with the organizations religious beliefs or creed cannot be contrary to public policy." Gay marriage, men in girls rooms, to name a few, are now public policy. If your church incorporated, you ALREADY AGREED to this. There will be many incorporated "churches" losing lawsuits in the coming month/years. Do the research yourself, there are a few non 501c3 churches on this site discussing this topic (pastor Jason Cooley and Sam Adams to name a few).
I just saw a quote that is appropriate for this story, "I can't love the sin that killed the Lord whom I love." I guess though that if they write songs that are positive and encouraging they will probably be played on most contemporary Christian radio stations no matter what their theology is.
Great Sermon! I found this sermon deeply impacting. Great use of Scripture and personal illustations. The logic of the outline flowed very well and directed us to the thrust of the sermon, and the heart of the doctrine before us.
