"Virtually everyone agrees that the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution offers some protections for religious groups. For example, most (even among gay rights advocates) believe the Constitution protects clergy from being required to officiate at marriages for same-sex couples and churches from being forced to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry in their sanctuaries.

But what about a church basement or retreat center, which is rented out for opposite-sex weddings? And what about a religiously affiliated institution, like a university, that offers married heterosexual students housing but refuses such accommodation for married gay and lesbian students?

These questions have real-world implications, since virtually all American religious groups have affiliated nonprofits (such as schools, hospitals and charities). And many, including some evangelical Protestant denominations, the Catholic Church, the Mormon church and Orthodox Jewish groups, oppose gay marriage on religious grounds.

Some scholars believe that the ruling in favor of gay marriage will not lead to widespread acrimony and legal battles. They note, for example, that there is no federal law banning discrimination based on sexual orientation. And, of the 22 states that ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, a majority (13) have at least some protections for religious groups written into their anti-discrimination statutes.

“There’s a big difference between something that could be an issue and something that’s likely to be an issue,” says Robert Tuttle, who teaches religion and law at George Washington University. Tuttle says he believes there may be some lawsuits, but he predicts that in more cases than not, accommodation and compromise are likely to win out. “After all, we still allow institutions, like universities, to discriminate based on gender,” he says.

But University of Illinois law professor Robin Fretwell Wilson says it’s possible that institutions will be pressured to give ground on gay marriage by federal authorities (such as the Internal Revenue Service, which could take away an institution’s tax-exempt status), state civil rights commissions or private lawsuits. She notes, for example, that the federal government now reads its laws against sex discrimination “to include sexual orientation discrimination, which opens a whole layer of potential threat” to religious organization

Forcing churches to wed gay people is against freedom of religion. Let churches be churches if civil marriage is a thing. And if you are a gay catholic, well tough luck.
Overall, there are some congregations (like some baptists churchs) in our country that accept to celebrate gay marriage. Some LGBT groups have specific issues with Catholic and evangelical churchs.

Is this about clergy wedding gays or just like with nameless link about the church being booked as a location for that?
No. The specific link was about a evangelic priest that was asked by a lesbian couple to celebrate their wedding and denied service, based on his religious beliefs. The couple then started to use social media to try and cancel him, leading to a lot of internet debate about our supreme court decision to allow gay marriage. Looking at it now it seems that is over a paywall, this link may be slightly better.
BTW, just for context, evangelical groups in Brazil are seem as more conservative about the original beliefs. This make them one of the biggest targets when discussing religion, specially because they also have a LOT of political power.

Evangelicals in Brazil fight the hardest against this degeneracy too.Eduardo Cunha saved us from abortion back in the day.Sadly,its all going down the drain.
