Cleveland, TN attorney, minister, and county commissioner sue the state over clarification of gay marriage law, Tennessee Times News.
Attorney inquires from the state on the Federal Supreme Court decision, and how it applies to state marriage licenses. Can the court, after declaring a law unconstitutional, then turn and enact a new state law, to replace the one that the court has said was invalid. Courts can not pass statues, only legislative bodies can pass statues, the Supreme Court seems to have passed a statue for the states."
GA bill goes before GA Senate,
ATLANTA (AP) – A bill headed toward a vote in the Georgia Senate would allow faith-based organizations to refuse services to same-sex couples without government penalties, including loss of taxpayer funding.
The powerful Senate Rules committee Tuesday added that language to a bill unanimously approved by the House last week allowing religious officials to decline performing same-sex marriage ceremonies. The move combines two of the eight bills introduced this year seeking legal exemptions for opponents of same-sex marriage after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling effectively legalized the unions.
The bill protecting pastors received little opposition on its way to a House vote. But gay-rights advocates have harshly criticized the broader Senate bill, known as the “First Amendment Defense Act,” that shields adoption agencies, schools and other organizations from penalties for opposing same-sex marriage.
-Pastors across the nation need to be reminded of the "Biblical core values" Federal Supreme Court ruling, citing their legal right to "adhere to Biblical core values," such as Romans chapter 1.
The wall of separation of church and state keeping the state out of the church, preventing Bible censorship, or state approved sermons.
The hate speech law now overturned in the Federal Supreme Court, in the "Phelps" hearing, cited our "legal right to debate the issues," citing homosexuality and Islam, as well as any issue from a Biblical viewpoint.
The Biblical core values ruling allows the church to refusal to perform gay weddings, the "legal right to debate the issues," upheld when the hate speech law was overturned prevents sermon, or Bible, censorship, and the 1964 Civil Rights Act giving religion "protected class status under the law," prevents the state from going after churches due to doctrine, or discriminating against Christians due to religious tenets.
The Biblical core values ruling, and hate speech law overturned upholding our "legal right to debate the issues," protect Christian's 1st Amendment rights!
