I have worked in the judicial system for 16 years as the CIO which does not qualify me as a legal scholar. However, I know plenty of judges and lawyers that have discussed this issue with me.
Before Florida implemented the gay marriage law, I brought this issue to my pastor at a board meeting. The topic was protection against possible lawsuits regarding the gay marriage legalization forced upon the general population.
Question: could the federal government threaten churches with loss of tax exemption unless the church marries gay, lesbian or transgender couples?
