In an effort to insulate themselves against so far nonexistent lawsuits, some churches are making changes to their bylaws. ABC News reports:
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 suits 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.
It seems like a harmless enough, if unnecessary, change to me. I have no desire to get married in the church that doesn’t want me. What do you all think?
