I am sure you are as heart-broken over today’s Supreme Court decision as I am. Gay rights activists have already gone public with the declaration that they are coming after churches (source: Janet Parshall, Moody Radio).
The link below is to a reputable blog that talks about a booklet called Protecting Your Ministry from Sexual Orientation Gender Identity Lawsuits. It is jointly put out by the Alliance Defending Freedom and The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. The blog author describes the actions his church took to protect it based upon the booklet.
I strongly encourage you read this booklet if nothing else but to ensure that you and your flock are in a healthy position. Postponing personnel decisions and facility usage requests and such until the appropriate documents are in place are probably also good ideas.
I also ask you to pass this link along to as many pastors and Christian school administrators as you can think of.
