Same-Sex Marriage and the Church, a Church Law Institute Action Conference
Friday, September 27, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM (CDT)
Bowling Green, KY
On June 26, 2013, the legal landscape in America changed decisively when the U.S. Supreme
Court struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Opponents of Biblical marriage have
been emboldened, and the collision between the right to marry and the right to free exercise
of religion is already occurring. Is your church ready for this unprecedented challenge?
