Churches changing bylaws after gay marriage ruling

By TRAVIS LOLLER
Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- With gay marriage now legal in 13 states, some churches think it is only a matter of time before they are sued by gay couples.
 
That's why some Christian attorneys are advising churches to change their bylaws to include their belief that the Bible only allows marriage between one man and one woman.
 
Attorney Kevin Snider with the Christian legal group the Pacific Justice Institute is one of those recommending the bylaw change.
 
Snider says he doesn't know of any churches that have been sued yet, but some religious leaders have been threatened with lawsuits.
 
Critics say the changes are unnecessary.
 
Gay Christian Network Director Justin Lee says there is no movement to force churches to perform weddings that violate their religious beliefs.
