Today we continue to look at the fall out from the legalization of homosexual marriage and how Christian “leaders” are responding.  Some government employees are refusing to issue homosexual marriage licenses, citing religious conviction.  The response: comply or be fired.

And Joel Osteen has weighed in on the decision.  Could he actually have a strong stance on something significant that the Bible teaches?  Spoiler alert:  Remember the cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz?  Julaine Appling of Wisconsin family Action weighs in to discuss how the ruling will affect Christian churches and organizations moving forward.  Also, some of our listeners from Canada–where homosexual marriage was legalized nearly a decade ago–weigh in with what we can expect in the U.S.
