Church Of God Re-Affirms Stance On Same Sex Marriage

The Church of God has approved a resolution reaffirming its view that marriage should be between a man and woman. The organization’s general assembly took the position during its annual convention in Oklahoma City at about the same time as an Indiana judge was striking down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage. A temporary stay has been granted to halt same-sex marriages while an Indiana court hears an appeal. In the event the ban is lifted, Lyon says credentialed pastors would not officiate in same gender marriages.
