If you are not familiar with it, you should check out Richard Hammer’s article on “Preaching About Homosexuality.” The article is from Your Church magazine and was posted in July.
When Pres. Obama signed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Hate Crimes Act as part of the National Defense Authorization Act into law, all sorts of claims were made about how the law would affect churches, particularly preachers who spoke out against homosexual practice.
The article was written by Richard Hammer who “is an attorney, CPA, and best-selling author specializing in legal and tax issues for church and clergy. A graduate of Harvard Law School, he is senior editor of Church Law & Tax Report, a bimonthly newsletter.”
When I was at my last church, we subscribed to the Church Law and Tax Report, and it almost always had helpful information about changes in laws or cases concerning churches and ministers.
