Churches changing bylaws after gay marriage ruling

Worried they could be sued by gay couples, some churches are changing their bylaws to reflect their view that the Bible allows only marriage between one man and one woman.

Although there have been lawsuits against wedding industry businesses that refuse to serve gay couples, attorneys promoting the bylaw changes say they don't know of any lawsuits against churches.

Critics say the changes are unnecessary, but some churches fear that it's only a matter of time before one of them is sued.

When they revise the by-laws, better prohibit bigamy, incest, polyamory, bestiality, pornography, RU486, directed energy abortions, female ordinations, etc. otherwise your congregation will have to re-open and vote on its book every few months to match the the denomination's constantly changing policies.

The congregation should change their by-laws regarding the Biblical definition of marriage not only to protect the church, but also their pastor. The church I belong to recently did this - the vote of the congregation was unanimous.

No, John Y., the Romish Church is pagan:

"Its rituals are rooted in paganism

A study of the many rituals, practices and traditions of the Catholic Church will reveal their pagan origins. Votive candles, holy water, vestments, images, relics, medals, scapulas, rosaries, transubstantiation, indulgences and purgatory were never part of the early church. The Tau cross (the letter “T” with a circle on top), a popular Catholic symbol, was one of Egypt’s most sacred hieroglyphics thousands of years before Christ. Almost all pagan religions have a place after death where a purging fire prepares people for their deity. The doctrine of purgatory was adopted from Babylonian, Greek and Roman mythology. The rosary invented by Peter the Hermit, 1000 years after Christ, can be traced back to the Buddhists and Mohammedans who used a similar mechanical device for counting prayers."

Come Out Of The Catholic Church (PDF)

1. Its worship is idolatrous
2. Its dogmas condemn Christians
3. Its rituals are rooted in paganism
4. Its authority is not divine
5. Its doctrines are demonic
6. Its teachings deny Christ ---Mike Gendron

And since Catholics worship Jesus as God then they are believers and not unbelievers. Unbelievers do not worship Jesus as God.

I am glad bylaws arr changing. Too many churches see weddings as a money making opportunity instead of a holy religious ceremony. They don't charge for baptisms so why charge for weddings?

I wouldn't say that the RC church has embraced homosexuality, but much of the laity has, unfortunately. I think the latest statistics mentioned that 30% of Roman Catholics took no issue with gay marraige, etc. These, along with any evangelicals, Baptists, or whoever who are in support of the same can't possibly qualify as Christians.
In the United States every Catholic who supports abortion and homosexuality should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church.

Its a cultural USA thing

Thats a US sample, and Protestants are around 50%. The numbers for conservative Catholics and Protestants are far lower

I gave Frost a pass on that comment because of the RCC position on forbidding Priests and Nuns to marry. Their(RCC) policy is not only close to a defacto acceptance, but leads to socioeconomic extortion as the RCC is also their employer

1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

1 Timothy 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

1 Timothy 4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

What does catholicism have to do with this? We're talking about Christian churches, not catholic ones. Catholicism has already embraced the homosexual agenda, and would probably be the leading candidate for poster child for mammon.

No, John Y...it was about Steves blanket comment.
Steve, the Roman Catholic religion is bursting with fatal false doctrines, so I don't think I'm being a hypocrite when I say it's different. Nobody is without some sort of erroros, it seems, but your militant defense of the Roman system always leaves me scratching my head...and no, it's not because I have dandruff...ha-ha. Thought I'd beat you to that one.

What is so sickening about Baptist Churches protecting themselves against lawsuits when they refuse to conduct homosexual wedding?
