City Ordinance Will Allow Same-Sex Weddings & Drag Shows in Church?

Several churches and a non-profit radio station filed a lawsuit last week against a Wisconsin city, challenging an ordinance that would control how churches employed people, who used their facilities, and even what advertising messages they would be allowed to promote.

The ordinance was enacted by the City of De Pere, located near Green Bay, last November. It is set to take effect March 1.

The plaintiffs are represented by Pacific Justice Institute, with local counsel Heidi Miller of Wauwatosa.

According to a press release from the PJI, the ordinance bars discrimination broadly. The only exception for religious entities like the churches and radio station is for hiring people of the same religion. However, they could not make employment decisions if a pastor, other employee or applicant acts inconsistently with church teaching but continues to claim to be of the same faith or denomination.
