Skip to comments.What to do When Forced to Perform ‘Gay Weddings’
Posted on 06/15/2014 8:13:01 AM PDT by Woodland
Churches in Denmark are now compelled, by law, to host same-sex weddings.
America is next.
Tyrannys appetite is insatiable. The secular-lefts hunger for power and control over its detractors can never be satisfied. To outwardly succumb and affirmatively capitulate to their pagan demands will never be enough.
Thought control is the goal.

In America, there would be revolution first.
Not Catholic priests.
Lt them start their own church...and abortion clinics...oops....nevermind...
Churches should decline to act as agents of the state. Do the church service only after a couple being married has completed the legal formality of obtaining and completing their marriage certificate and being married in front of a judge. I hate to suggest this because it plays into the “’Wall of separation” view of church and state, but do we really want the Gay lobby to fund its activities with the proceeds of lawsuits against churches and Christians?
It is Leftist Sharia.
Uh. Refuse. Go to jail. Sit in the lion’s den. Sit in the fiery furnace. Have faith. Keep the faith.
I suppose the most pathetic aspect of this wanton cultural destruction is that gays and their sympathizers really, truly believe that for the first time in history they are now accepted, love, equal, etc.
What the poor desperate saps don’t realize is that they are just another leftist battering ram used to raze Western civilization and all that has gone before.
As the article says, trannies believe their moment has arrived but there is still a huge difference between probable mental illness and the sure-nuff real thing. Moreover, the trannies can’t agree on what constitutes their condition. They are fond of preaching ‘sexual/gender identity is a continuum’...’male/female are just social constructs’ but suddenly when it comes to bathroom use, sports team participation, etc. their so-called rules are ironclad and must be obeyed without question. They can rot.
I like No. 3."
He may like 3, but the pastors still must choose 1 or 2.
#2 is #3. #1 is the opposite.
IMO, churches in America will not be forced by law to perform such ceremonies.
However, it is quite possible that an attempt will be made to remove tax-exempt status from those churches promoting hate.
If islam ever prevails - to which this homosexual rights nonsense is directly contributing - God help the homos when they’re herded into the stadiums.
Next, Churches will be forced to hire homosexuals for staffing purposes.
Religious schools will be forced to hire homosexuals, too.
“...or have your 501(C) tax emempt status revoked.”
Well, there hangs the center of it. Ok, fine, LET them revoke the preferred tax treatment. Figure when it comes to this point, your church will become a tax-paying operation — like any other business. “Render unit Caesar,” and so forth. Raise additional funds to cover the tax bills.
Of course, even that level of knuckling under won’t help you. They’ll cancel your special tax status and force you to do the ceremony anyway — just like the cake baker, who was not even a church, but a simple commercial business.
It’s not about civil rights, or religion — it’s about tyranny and mind control. They demand the power, and you will submit — or else. (Remind you of anything?)
Now, don’t get me wrong: I’m a bible-believing Christian to the best of my inadequate ability. What I am saying is, the evil ones hated Him long before they came to hate and crush you.
It’s coming, friends, and I see no way to stop it or slow it down. Be clear in your mind on this point. They will not relent because of who it is they are working for.
Denmark doesn’t have the First Amendment. This is an important difference. I don’t doubt that things will get harder for churches that preach against gays, but they will not be forced to perform gay marriages. Churches today are not forced to perform any marriage, and there are plenty of other popular marriage causes. Churches can decline to marry people who aren’t of their denomination, people who don’t go to church, people who’ve been divorced, or interracial couples.
Now clerks WILL be required to issue marriage licenses to gays...
Just like with gun registration - WE WILL NOT COMPLY.
No CHURCH in America has been FORCED to perform a gay MOCK wedding.
