Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity 'Rights' Erode Religious Freedom

starparkermarriage_postAs homosexuals continue to gain special rights above our fundamental, constitutional rights, more of our precious liberty erodes.

The homosexual lobby wants full acceptance for their lifestyle and total compliance from those who believe what God says about sin.

With so-called local non-discrimination ordinances appearing across the country, Christian business owners expect government coercion to bake “wedding” cakes or allow men to use women’s restrooms, and vice versa. But what about religious organizations, particularly non-profits? From the Center for Family & Human Rights:

A source within the federal government has informed the Friday Fax that the White House is quietly moving forward with a policy change that will require charitable humanitarian groups to accept LGBT applicants in order to qualify for government funding, even those religious groups that might have religious objections.

The policy change is linked to an executive order President Obama issued last July that prohibits federal contractors from discriminatory hiring practices based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Faith-based groups were already wrestling with that order.

Of course, this is all linked to receiving federal money or holding tax-exempt status. If faith-based groups stopped taking the money, would they be able to refuse to hire men pretending to be women?

Social engineers and other liberals who equate “marriage” between two men and marriage between a man and a woman of different races, or rather, our resistance to the former, are way off the mark. To put an immutable characteristic like skin color or ethnicity on the same level as deviant sexual behavior is offensive and bears no relation to black Americans revolting against second-class citizenship.

The difference for Christians is that marrying someone of a difference race isn’t a sin. Homosexuality is a sin. The government can pass as many laws as it likes declaring all kinds of “marriages” legal and good. But it can’t change what God says about it or what we know to be true.
