Obama won’t force churches to hold gay weddings

Supreme Court ruled in favour of gay couples by striking down certain provisions in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). In its decision, the court cleared the way for states that allow gay marriage to pay federal benefits to married gay couples.

In a statement following the court’s ruling, Obama said he would not force religious institutions to hold gay weddings.

President Obama, in his statement hailing the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, promised that he wouldn’t try to force religious institutions to conduct gay marriages.

“On an issue as sensitive as this, knowing that Americans hold a wide range of views based on deeply held beliefs, maintaining our nation’s commitment to religious freedom is also vital,” Obama said. “How religious institutions define and consecrate marriage has always been up to those institutions. Nothing about this decision — which applies only to civil marriages — changes that.”

  • It’s a lie. Obama will force churches to perform same-sex marriage and the IRS will revoke their non-profit status if they refuse.
