Boston, Mass., Oct 13, 2016 / 11:43 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Four churches and their pastors are challenging a Massachusetts law which they say could regulate their speech regarding gender identity.
“This case is about who controls Massachusetts churches,” said the churches’ legal motion to halt enforcement of the law. “Are pastors and churches still free to teach their religious beliefs and use their houses of worship to reflect and reinforce those beliefs?”
The four churches and their pastors filed the motion in U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, Eastern Division. They have also filed a lawsuit against Massachusetts officials.
