Another Pastor Jailed In U.S For Refusing To Wed Gay Couple

Horner of the Christian Proctor Church in Vermont, was given a sentence of one-year jail term in the federal prison.

Handing down the sentence, Honorable Myron Danus said, “Religious freedom goes both ways, Mr. Horner.

“It is not your place to deny individuals the same rights that everyone else has, rights that were passed down and agreed upon in a court of law, the ultimate court, the Supreme Court.

“It is not your decision whether or not you agree with the law but more importantly that you follow it and enforce it.”

Speaking to journalists after the court session, Horner’s lawyer said, “We are currently disputing the guilty verdict and I am confident my client will be a free man here shortly,” said attorney Tom Downey.

“Horner was just using his best judgement according to his rights and religious freedom in this country.”

Investigators discovered that Horner’s church is registered with the state as a “religious corporation” which is only entitled to joining “one-man-one-woman marriages as defined by the Holy Bible.”

City officials are of the view that the church authorities must comply with state and federal regulations since it is also registered as a for-profit business.

President of the Vermont Family Research Committee, Steve Shand, said it is “open season on Americans who refuse to bow to the government’s redefinition of marriage.”

“Homosexuals are gay. Why should Christian ministers be forced to perform and celebrate any marriage that conflicts with their beliefs? It’s a slippery slope my friend. Pretty soon these same pastors will be forced to wed animals or kitchen appliances. This is not my America!”

According to NBC, Gwen Hawkins who is president of the LGBT Pride Center in Vermont said she is happy with the guilty verdict.

Hawkins said, “We just want the same rights as everyone else and this guilty verdict sets a great precedent.

“These fanatical Christians base their life on one verse in the Bible but they seem to forget the other 99% of the verses in the book. For example, why can’t we stone to death Bristol Palinfor having a baby out of wedlock? And what about her mother, Sarah Palin, breaking the rules ofCorinthians 14:34 which clearly state that as a woman, she is not allowed to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. But no, they like to pick the one verse in the Bible about gay people and build their camp around it.”

Proctor is a town in Rutland County, Vermont, United States. The population was 1,741 at the 2010 census. Proctor is home to the Vermont Marble Museum and Wilson Castle.

  1. Now those making the news are not LGBTs or their supporters but those standing for Jesus Christ. ‪#‎BeBold‬ ‪#‎StandforJesus‬

  2. CE PASTEUR EST UN HOMME BENI DE DIEU.

    Il doit être pour tout chrétien né de nouveau un modèle. Nous savons maintenant que nous sommes les cibles des dirigeants de ce monde que le diable à séduit et qui travaille sous ses ordres pour détruire la foi dans l’univers.

    C’est pourquoi nous devons élever notre foi sur YéShWa HaMeShYa le Roi YHWH, El Shaddaï, MelkiTşédék, Celui qui trône sur toute chose en vertu de son Sang versé sur la Croix pour nous.

    Nous devons enseigner tous ceux et celles qui veulent comprendre le sens de leur vie et être réellement sauvés de ce monde qui court à sa destruction que HaMéShYà qui était apparu dans l’univers comme un simple Fils de Dieu dans un chair semblable à la nôtre, est le Dieu Tout-puissant la Vie éternelle.

    Il a établie sa Justice sur la Croix en offrant son Corps et versant son Sang comme Agneau du Sacrifice promis à Isaac par la bouche de son père Abraham. Genèse 22:8.

    Lui, YéShWà HaMéShYà avait été injustement accusé et crucifié parce qu’Il proclamait la Vérité sans broncher…

    Dans Le monde d’aujourd’hui, les hommes veulent vivre leurs vies sans Dieu en suivant les conseils du diable, Lucifer, le Serpent ancien, qui a séduit tous les dirigeants des États de ce monde. Et ces démons qu’on appelle des extra-terrestres sont entrés dans leurs chairs et ce sont eux qui sont entrain de diriger ce monde.

    J’invite tous les chrétiens de ce monde à ne plus se regarder selon la chair, mais selon leur identité véritable en Ha-MéShYà, notre seul Seigneur et unique Maître en qui nous sommes…

    De sortir de la doctrine de la sainte trinité, car tous ceux et toutes celles qui sont dans cette doctrine, ne pourront pas résister aux assauts du diable et de ses démons, puisque c’est lui même le diable qui est derrière cette doctrine mensongère qui ne glorifié pas le Tout-puissant Dieu d’Abraham et Roi d’Israël qui est Un et Un Seul, de sorte que YéShWà, le Dieu et Seigneur de gloire, notre Créateur, est Ha-MéShYà, le Fils unique du Très Haut révélé en chair.

    Celui qui a vu Ha-MéShYà, le Fils révélé en chair, a vu YéShWà, le Père invisible. Et, écrit L’apôtre Paul, le Dieu-vivant, c’est Celui qui s’était manifesté dans la chair, vu des anges, attesté par l’Esprit, prêché aux non-juifs, cru dans le monde et élevé à la gloire après avoir triomphé sur le diable, le serpent ancien, à la Croix en versant son Sang qui paie et les exigences de la Loi de L’Eden et de la Loi Mosaïque.

    Il avait empêché que Eve vierge sous la Loi puisse enfanter le Fils HaMéShYà en Éden en lui donnant le mensonge, mais le Véritable YéShWà l’a confondu en produisant une nouvelle Vierge sous la Loi, sous le Voile par le peuple D’Israël, Mariam, et avec un ange fidèle Gabriel, ce dernier a apporté à la Vierge la Parole de la Vérité et la femme a conçu Ha-MéShYà qui est Dieu, le Tout-puissant, le Père Éternel, l’Unique Sauveur…

    C’est pour je proclame son Nom Tout-puissant YéShWà HaMéShYà afin qu’en ces moments tous les démons et le diable lui-même en personne tremblent…

    Honte à toi, Lucifer et à tourtes anges déchus. Que le Tout-puissant vous réprimé, car Il revient bientôt.

    Messianiques, vous les chrétiens et les chrétiens, je vous appelle à la Foi véritable, je vous appelle à la crainte de notre Dieu, YéShWà HaMéShYà qui est le Dieu véritable et Le Tout-puissant.

    Ne craignez pas les hommes et leurs menaces, car ils servent le diable. Mais vous craignez YéShWà HaMéShYà notre Dieu et soyez inébranlables dans votre foi. Lisez la Bible et croyez. DIEU EST DANS SA PAROLE POUR L’EXÉCUTER… Il ne nous laissera pas tomber… Même si ce corps est détruit, nous sommes vivants éternellement.

    Béni soit Celui qui vient au nom de YéShWà HaMéShYà, Le Dieu Tout-puissant, notre Créateur, le Seigneur de Toute gloire.

    Que Tout genou fléchisse devant Lui. Aaaaamen.

  3. All christians fight back again the true marriege of God and nature. I know suprem Court put a time bomb destroy Amwrican Generation. Without real and true marriage no the future work force, no business, no generation. But, this gay marriege never takes others right. America now goes wrong way. You must keep others right who never belief gay marriege. Without Christian belief why force us the government. All people who real belief other
    Christianity must fight back again to get respect our belief. America breakdown by her own hand by standing against God.

  4. I really don’t know why the supreme court in America feels it is very much a senior to the Bible, i now believe why muslims in other parts of this world hate ur guts, in the first place why did you enact this gayism into law,,were you drunk, or you are simply an architect of the devil, When i hear or see people who breath, walk , and think like humans throw away all emotions to support these gays, i wonder whether their mothers were men and their fathers were women, The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS SICK and i know GOD will be their healer, WHY DO YOU WANT TO BRING GAY MARRIAGES INTO CHURCH? The very foundation of christians is GOD Almighty and his only begotten son JESUS CHRIST, and it is teachings and laws we use in church, and He detest gayism,

  5. someone should put me through how the laws in united state works because even in hetrogneous marriage where the opposite sx are involved, a pastor can refuse to join them in marriage

  6. These are the end times.We have to be bold and stand up for Jesus as someone rightly stated.Leviticus 20:13

  9. Now that same sex marriages are legal in the US why don’t same sex couples go to those who are of like mind and let them marry them. I am sure there are a few gay pastors around who would be happy to marry them. Why should anybody be forced to do anything that is against their beliefs and the dictates of their consciences. I say stand up for what you believe in, Christians take a stand for Jesus even if it means death he will not let you down. The bible says it is better to obey God than man.

    Nuff said.

  10. American government is sinning against GOD. The punishment from God is soon on a way for the devil warshipers

  11. Obama has brought a bad omen to America. This decision will make America crumble. Let the Saints in America begin to plead for mercy. Obama we don’t need you in Africa. Gay is ungodly, unafrican and against the law of humanity. This is the end time signs.

  12. America need to ask sodom &gomorah what happened to them when they took the route you have taken.
    they are forgotten forever and ever . whether its right or not in the eyes highest court of U.S ,God says it’s wrong. ..learn from history, .don’t dare God’s wrath.

  13. this woman,hawkins thus not no the bible and the quotation she gave “coriithians 14:34″even says
    “come back to your right senses and stop your sinful ways. i decare to your shame that some of you do not know God”. she should stop misquotating the bible. 1 timothy talks about what she was refering to. Anyway I think they want an end to the world so shall it be. Jesus is coming to wipe filthiness and disgusting from the world.Aww
    this gay think was the only commandement with emphasis”hate”. Leviticus 18:26 no man is to have sexual relationship with another man God ”hate” that. The supreme court is led by satanist and God will take back his throne and dissolve them all.

  14. I thank God for his promises to come and judging the world. The battle has begun so Christians wake up. The end is nearly.

  15. Absolutely wrong sentence. Even I, a layman, can prove that the Pasteur has a full right to deny those people marriage in his Church as long as his Church does not belive in and accept gay marriage. After all who has the right to interprete religious belivrs,canons and doctinines? Not judges nor the supreme court. I believe gay marriage is a SIN. That is my belief. Is there anyone who has the right to tell me that I should believe in this or that way? Not a judge nor the supreme court have this right. A given Church has its own canon based on which to accept or reject individuals as members to render or refuse services. And it is religious councils elected according to the bylaws of each Churches that have right to to decide on such issues. The supreme court decicion on gays is NOT a decision about their absolute freedom of religion to go where ever they want and get what ever services they want. Churches are not public places or government institution where all government laws served to everybody, but only to those who meet the criteria to be a member and receive services. Churches cannot be forced by any to serve as mosques for Muslims nor for gays get married unless stipulated in their bylaws to do so. The Supreme court decision did not say that those who believe in the sanctity of marriage as one man and one woman should can not believe that way nor they were wrong, but those who belive otherwise too have the right to be recognized before the law of court and civil rights laws and services. Not in religious believes to be accepted if they want to. This depends on individual churches’ terms of agreement. So this judge is absolutely wrong and I firmly believe that the decicion will be reversed soon. Giving rights to others is not taking the rights of others. But pesonally I believe that the supreme court decicion is absolutely WRONG socially, morally, even scientifically.

  16. Therez no Supreme court above God’s own.
    If George Washington came back today. …He would faint. …Why call God’s rath on your land?
    What u r u leaving behind for the generation next…Other than payn for your sins. God loves America real big. ..but he says he punishes even those he loves…..FIRE…lyk Sodom en Gomorah.
    Watch Wat u en act as law

  17. Another Sodom and Gomorah …. One day God Shall speak out for these Pastors who have chosen to stand on His WORD through fire like in the days of Lot

  18. i wonder why God sees all this and keep quite, because i he did not create adam and steve, he created adam and eve, why on earth should man marry man, why do people turn bible upside down, why should sombody be jail against his or her believe,americans should turn to God now before what happen to sodom and gomoro will happen to america

  19. The supreme court think the are above the creator but thats wrong because the final speaker is Christ. so the church has its own doctrines an believe. why its that the gay doesn’t go to court an get married? please the christian should be persuaded (Rom 8:38)
