Bishop T.D. Jakes downplayed the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to end state bans on same-sex marriage during a worship service at his Texas megachurch on Sunday, saying that the issue was not his primary concern.
Jakes informed worshipers at The Potter's House in Dallas that he had been "bombarded" by various people wanting to know his thoughts on the Supreme Court's ruling last Friday that state bans on gay marriage are unconstitutional.
"I'm not really as concerned about this as a lot of people are," said Jakes during service on Sunday, according to a video excerpt of his remarks published online. "I'm really not as concerned about it. I think that we should not lose our mind about the world being the world and the Church being the Church. This is not a news flash. The world is gonna be the world and the Church is gonna be the Church, and you have to understand the difference." more >>
California megachurch pastor Greg Laurie gave a special sermon Sunday to help his congregation and Christians elsewhere in the country deal with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage.

"The church is under attack around the world," the Harvest Ministries pastor said as he began the sermon on Sunday, two days after the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. more >>

The single mom acknowledged that the news of her second pregnancy might be "a huge disappointment to my family" but also pointed out that "there's nothing I can't do with God by my side."
