Proposed Law Would Force Churches to Host Gay Weddings
Religious liberty groups are blasting a proposed ordinance that would force churches in Hutchinson, Kan. to rent their facilities for gay weddings and gay parties.

The Hutchinson City Council will consider adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the protected classes in the city’s human relations code. They are expected to vote on the changes next month.

I do understand what you are saying, but my point is that as a private business I can discriminate if I so desire. Admittedly you would invoke public scorn, but you would be well within your rights. Recent legal actions against private business owners by those claiming discrimination have been met with the constitutionality of the owner making the rules as long as no laws or individual rights are violated. I may choose not to serve you in my restaurant if you have an offensive t-shirt, yet I am not violating your rights. I choose not to rent to you because you do not share my beliefs. You certainly have the right to look elsewhere.

Don even under 501c3 churches don't have to rent to anyone. The issue here is that if they do rent for outside use then they are not going to be allowed to discriminate in who and what services they rent out for.

501 C 3 um, let's see. If a church removes its tax exempt status, it will no longer be required to rent to anyone. Private business is just that. If I don't want to rent my business to a same sex couple for their wedding, I don't have to. Make sense?

Yes, the Great Plains has gone nuts. Omaha has passed an idiot ordinance protecting immorality and Lincoln may soon do the same. I really don't see how this could be forced on a church in the U.S. ---yet.
