WASHINGTON (AP) - The House on Wednesday approved the first federal ban on job discrimination against gays, lesbians and bisexuals.
Passage of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act came despite protests from some gay rights supporters that the bill does not protect transgender workers. That term covers transsexuals, cross-dressers and others whose outward appearance does not match their gender at birth.
The measure would make it illegal for employers to make decisions about hiring, firing, promoting or paying an employee based on sexual orientation. It would exempt churches and the military.
After the 235-184 vote, supporters are expecting a tough fight in the narrowly divided Senate, where Massachusetts Democrat Edward Kennedy plans to introduce a similar version....

The concern for the Church is how those man-centered arguments and resulting persuasions become influential in the thinking of believers. The bottomline issue becomes what, or who, is the authority on the issue at hand.
For the believer it is the Bible. The Bible, being the Word of the unchanging God, remains the standard for living and knowing what is holy and right, and what is sinful and wrong.
The Bible clearly states, from Genesis to Revelation, that homosexuality is sin. It is but one sin among many others which include adultery, fornication, lying, stealing, for which God offers forgiveness to those who repent and place their faith and trust in Christ alone.
More of the damnable foolery that is in the hearts of "Our" SERVANTS
Just another step toward pushing "Our" level of soicial Acceptability/Decency down to the "gutter-most"...

Men just can't seem to WAKE UP --- they enjoy the fat of the lambs of GOD and they pervert THE TRUTH to do it --- OH THE FIRE THAT AWAITS the perverse souls who delve out their own disheveled doctrinal err teaching that "GAIN" IS GODLINESS -- *FROM SUCH TURN AWAY* !!!
