Idaho Pastors filed lawsuit over same sex weddings

WGRC News - 7 hours 4 min ago

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.
