For years we have ben stressing how the day would come when the Government would begin dictating the sermons preached from the pulpits of America. And now we are witnessing the very groundwork for this. An Iowa church is facing the state’s so-called nondiscrimination requirements that could block the house of worship from preaching what they desire.. According to reports, Lawyers for the church are asking a federal court to prevent Iowa from censoring what the religious group can say about homosexuality, same-sex “marriage,” transgenderism and other related topics.
Excerpt from WND:
The case erupted when the state’s Civil Rights Commission first claimed the authority to control the content of sermons and then to define what’s religious. At issue is the state’s nondiscrimination requirements that specify any “public accommodation” can be ordered not to say anything that might make a homosexual or a transgender feel “unwelcome,” such as even reading from the Bible a condemnation of such behavior. Lawyers for the Alliance Defending Freedom, who are representing the church, have filed a reply in support of their motion for a preliminary injunction that would protect the church members’ constitutional rights while the case plays out.
