Righteous Church of God “Same Sex Marriage” Statement
The Righteous Church of God and Truth Association recognizes the rights extended to those of the LBGT community and same sex marriage via the Constitution.
However, The Righteous Church of God and Truth Association exercises First Amendment rights which allow us to invoke our utmost and sincerest convictions, that, by divine precepts, same sex marriage is not recognized in our religious teachings, doctrines or bylaws.
In accordance with our bylaws and beliefs, we adhere to our religious doctrines and the Biblical and traditional definition of marriage being one (1) man and (1) woman
(Genesis 2 and 1st Corinthians, Chapter 7).
The Righteous Church of God and Truth Association's bylaws and religious doctrines prohibit any civil ceremonies, including but not limited to marriage counseling, marital ceremony or
marital reception, pertaining to same sex marriage to be performed on the Churchs' or associations' property.
