Report: Obama Forcing Faith-Based Organizations to Hire Homosexuals and Transsexuals
The Obama Administration will soon require faith-based, charitable groups which receive federal grants to hire homosexuals and transsexuals. That disturbing revelation comes straight out from published reports from the Center for Family and Human Rights.
Here's the backstory: Last summer, Obama inked an executive order requiring federal contractors to provide what Congress refused to pass, namely civil rights status for sexual behavior or subjective gender identity.
Now Obama is reportedly adding the "sexual orientation and gender identity" mandate to humanitarian groups that receive federal grants as well. Federal contracts are awarded when a federal agency is acquiring something; grants are awarded when a federal agency is providing assistance....
Alan Cairns preached a great message on this sort of thing called something like "Going down to Egypt for help". It was based on God's people having outside help from the ungodly. Alan was against it. Quite right. Independency from the ungodly, and Dependency upon the Lord, is the way forwards.
Jim Lincoln wrote: What do I prefer? For the Faith-based Initiative to be completely done away with. This would be my preference, and not for the President making it so obnoxious that it won't be used, though of course that's better than it being used.
'Universalism' is part of the definition of faith used by politicians. Just like the Amyraldians.
the faith based initiatives under Bush earned their silence for the surveillance state created around them.
they still cannot discern the connection between invading countries and their downfall and Christian persecution.
however, this does not justify the current leaders destruction of all that is sacred in society. the aim is for what they can achieve the goal is countrywide, worldwide 100% compliance to their perverted agenda.
Jim Lincoln. Obviously Mod Alpha doesn't perceive the connection between Political definition of 'faith' - And the true one.
"Under the Bush administration, our country is experiencing a major transformation from a secular to a religious government. The President's faith-based initiative is central to this transformation and raises serious questions about church-state separation. "Slouching toward theocracy. President Bush's faith-based initiative is doing better than you think," by Bill Berkowitz, 2/6/04 provides an overview of this transformation.
In his State of the Union address, Bush renewed a call for Congress to make permanent his faith-based proposals that would allow religious organizations to compete for more government contracts and grants without a strict separation between their religious activities and social service programs.
On February 4, 2004, the U.S. House of Representatives voted for provisions in a social services bill that allow religiously based job discrimination in publicly funded programs run by churches.
How Much Money? How much are taxpayers paying for what Barry Lynn, Executive Director of American's United calls "federally subsidized employment discrimination?"" http://www.theocracywatch.org/faith_base.htm#Bias:

This is indeed a rarity - a Jim Lincoln post I wholeheartedly agree with. True Christian churches and real Christian parachurch organizations should have absolutely no ties to the federal government in any fashion or form. Once they do, they are tools of the state rather than bodies of Christ. No genuine body of called-out believers should have a federal 501c3 tax exemption or accept tax dollars from the government - ever. The Roman Catholic cult will no doubt disagree but I wouldn't expect anything else.
No, I'm not an atheist, it's just a pity that it was a Jewish and an atheist that wrote the way a Christian should have wrote! Christians have attacked "Christian" Activism? I attacked the faith-based idea since G.W. Bush came out with it. I have attacked vouchers vigourously considering they mainly support parochial schools and they have their faith based in the wrong things See, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No.. This article has some comments about parochial schools.
No, I have a lot of worry with people who are suppose to be Christian mixing up government and churches!
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: ...The Bible does not say we are in the Kingdom. The Bible does not say the Church is to build the Kingdom. The Bible does not say the Church is the Kingdom. Confusion is growing concerning what the Church is, what is its responsibility to society, and what the Bible teaches about building the Kingdom
When one president sets up an office for faith, a federally sponsored faith initiative, another would come along for it to do its bidding. There is a problem with politicization of the gospel , the gospel is about the regeneration and sealing of the believer in Christ , his death on a cross and resurrection of his body and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit , cannot be confined to secular religions. Don't take their money, tax incentstives to be loved by the world. Sin in Gods eyes has no boundaries.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Do, I care about the source of either article, no not in the least, because what is said is true, on the whole. It's a pity that Christian haven't written against this evil idea. So, the faster that President Obama implements this new policy the better.
I suppose the Romish organizations won't find this too much of an inconvenience considering all the homosexual nuns and priests that they already have working for them.
Jim I don't know exactly how Obama and the RCC will interact with each other in all this but I believe it is safe to say it will come out as another example of the spiritual whoredom that flows from those rejecting the Truth of the word of God, and those who prostitute themselves for state moneies
BTW it is interesting this matter of the state getting its money's worth from "an unfaithful church" is grieveous enough that even enemies of Biblical Christianity are opposed to it.
"Good Job" Thanks for sharing these posts of note from the other side, especailly without Pro-RC approval
The Real Stevenr Just a heads up, I think you already know the effeminate kinder gentler types will be out to malign you for being so insensitive and hurting the feelings of the "friends" of Obama
