Fire leaves three people displaced

WGRC News - Wed, 10/22/2014 - 2:40pm

Authorities are looking into the cause of a fire that broke out on the front porch of a home Tuesday afternoon.

That person went to check it out and saw a fire in the corner of the porch. The Sun Gazette says fire officials had most of the fire out in about 15 minutes, but the whole front porch was reportedly engulfed in flames when crews got to the scene.

Obama says same sex marriage is a constitutional right

WGRC News - Wed, 10/22/2014 - 12:24pm

Although President Barack Obama previously said the definition of marriage should be decided locally, he now believes the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to same same-sex marriage in all states. The Christian Post says, He also suggested that the Supreme Court’s decision earlier this month to not rule on same-sex marriage is the hallmark of his tenure. Obama said, In some ways, the decision that was just handed down to not do anything about what states are doing on same-sex marriage may end up being as consequential — from my perspective, a positive sense — as anything that’s been done.

Idaho Pastors filed lawsuit over same sex weddings

WGRC News - Tue, 10/21/2014 - 2:28pm

Two ordained Christian pastors in Idaho have filed a federal lawsuit and a motion for temporarily restraining Coeur d’Alene city officials from forcing them to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies or face prosecution for violating “non-discrimination” laws.
Donald Knapp and his wife, Evelyn, who run Hitching Post Wedding Chapel have been required by city officials to perform gay ceremonies or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines.
The city says its non-discrimination ordinance requires them to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies because the courts have overridden Idaho’s voter-approved constitutional amendment that affirmed marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The lawsuit states, The city is “unconstitutionally coercing” the Knapps to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies “in violation of their religious beliefs, their ordination vows, and their consciences.

City of Houston demands Pastors turn over sermons

WGRC News - Fri, 10/17/2014 - 12:17pm

Christians across the nation are mobilizing to defend a group of Houston pastors who were ordered by the city to turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity issues or Houston mayor.
Dave Welch, one of the five ministers who received a subpoena said, he will not be intimidated by Annise Parker, who is the city’s first openly lesbian mayor, nor will he comply with the city’s demands. My answer to that is — bring it on,” he said. It’s in response to a lawsuit filed related to the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance. The new law, among other things will allow men who identify as women to use the restrooms of their choice — and vice versa. Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council, said pastors around the nation should rally around the Houston ministers.
