Don't go to any (church ?) that condones same sex marriage.
They're a demonized cult if they do.
God says it's an abomination to Him.(see definition below)
If you want to be on the winning side, be with God on this
decision. You won't go to Heaven agreeing with same sex
marriage. You can't be saved by the Blood of Jesus Christ and
be FOR this travesty.
God, the creator of everything that exists, hates it.
Remember Sodom and Gomorrah?
You may try to convince yourself that there is no hell, but
hell is real and it's forever.
It's continuous horror and pain without end!
Wailing and gnashing of teeth doesn't sound like something
I want to experience for infinity, neither is, "just touch my
tongue with a drop of water for I am tormented in this place."

Abomination:
1.A thing that causes disgust or hatred.
2.A feeling of hatred.

Synonyms

abhorrence - loathing - disgust - repugnance

I notice your location is hidden on you posting.
You, like most people who post things against
God's Word are cowards.
Robe color has nothing to do with this subject.
I've never worn a ROBE in my life, of any kind.
You're sin sick like all of the others and if
you don't change your ways you'll end up in hell
forever, too.
When your heart beats its last 'tick', you'll
see what horror you've gotten into, and it will
NEVER END.
Think of the most horrible things you can imagine;
it's thousands of times worse than that and it
NEVER ENDS !

You'll see !

I'm a member of Casas Adobes Congregational United Church Of Christ, and was a member of the Sayville Congregational United Church Of Christ for 15 years. I've also attended a number of other UCC churches over teh years and have never seen nor heard of a UCC church that is NOT "Open and Affirming", and that does not welcome LGBT people, and all of them have supported equal marriage rights for us.

The UCC churches that don't do this are a very tiny minority.
