The homosexual lobby is relentless.
We’re living in an era where those in power tend to favor special rights for homosexuals, including men pretending to be women, over Christians’ constitutionally protected right to free exercise of religion.
Homosexuals don’t want mere tolerance. They want total compliance, and they lobby the government to punish those who refuse to give them the stamp of approval they demand.
For example, it’s not enough that Christian business owners serve homosexuals. Owners who refuse to service “weddings” and bake cakes face fines. These Christians should have the option to decline to participate in a service that violates their faith and gives the appearance of celebrating sin — one God calls an abomination. But it’s this assessment that homosexuals don’t like, and they’re determined to stifle dissent in the name of “equality.”
WORLD reported that the so-called Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual lobby group, wants the U.S. Congress and the Department of Education to “broadcast information” to prospective students about Christian schools that refuse to cave to the agenda. They accused 56 such schools of using religious liberty as an excuse to discriminate.
Individuals and groups discriminate all the time. The question in the context of constitutional rights is whether the action is justified. In the case of allowing men to use women’s restrooms or baking cakes for homosexual “weddings,” for instance, the answer is yes. An excerpt (emphasis added):
“There is an alarming and growing trend of schools quietly seeking the right to discriminate against LGBT students, and not disclosing that information publicly,” HRC president Chad Griffin said in a press release. “Prospective students and their parents deserve greater transparency.”
Title IX mandates educational institutions not discriminate “on the basis of sex,” but it grants provisions for military training institutions, schools with a history of admitting only one gender, and cases where the law “would not be consistent with the religious tenets of such organization.”
As homosexuality (or any sin) is inconsistent with the tenets of the Christian faith, Christian schools should be exempt.
If voters keep putting liberals in the White House, Christians can expect more of the same treatment and accusations. The assault on our religious beliefs will continue.
