Feds: Insurers can't discriminate on LGBT Obamacare coverage
Insurers and hospitals can't discriminate against patients because of their gender identity under the Affordable Care Act, federal officials said Friday, but patient groups complained the rule doesn't go far enough.
The Department of Health and Human Services finalized a rule that prohibited discrimination in health care based on a long list of characteristics ranging from race to pregnancy, gender identity and "sex stereotyping."
It doesn't mean insurers have to cover all treatments associated with gender transitioning but they just can't outright deny them either. But the rule doesn't go far enough in clarifying what is discrimination, some say....
Thanks FG. God's commands remain valid, in effect, and unchanging throughout all generations. Take Leviticus out of the equation for a moment, and He still makes the same particular sins unquestionably clear througout His Word, old covenant, and new. Sin is sin, and all sin will be punished, but God seems to caution even more fervently against the unnatural acts and the harsh punishment they will receive, not unlike His warning to those who would harm a child, etc. Seems to me that the kindly old grandmother who spent her life helping the less fortunate, baking cookies for the neighbors, and never having an unkind word to say, yet remained lost, will face eternal condemnation, but the punishments of those living in flagrant disobedience and disregard for God's order, especially those acts against nature, will suffer more severe consequences.

The real hate is coming from the LGBT community, especially in your rallies and your sodomite pride parades. That being said, it is obvious that you don't know (and I imagine don't care about)that the ceremonial elements of the old testament code no longer apply but moral elements still do. That includes those in Leviticus. God still hates sin. All sin. Specific sins, but especially those sins that blur the lines of the distinction between the holy and the profane and the distinctions between the sexes. These latter ones are an abomination unto Him, along with those who commit them. And real Christians are going to proclaim these truths and call sinners to repentance from sin, and faith in the biblical Christ, and Him only, no matter what anybody does,says or thinks. In God's eyes that's not hypocrisy, that's faithfulness. That's all.
Promote transgenderism, you are promoting hate, for it is consigning those poor souls to a living a lie. There are men, and there are women. There is no category of none of the above. Obamacare is hate disguised as compassion

Yes, anyone who says one is ok, but the other is wrong is hypocritical and nonsensical. I'm not sure who would be claiming such outrageous nonscense, but their brand of Christianity is seriously flawed and their knowledge of God's Word, limited.
Sorry, but you're views and accusations are sorely misguided. You seem to be hung up on Leviticus while using it to argue a case for irrelevance. I already said this earlier, but I'll post it again. God makes very clear, and in no uncertain terms throughout the old and new testaments that He abhors sodomy and the eternal fate of those who defy Him. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. God hasn't changed...man has. There's no rational, logical way to get around His commands not to engage in these acts against His predefined nature. You've fallen into the very same trap that society, and even so-called Christians have as they twist and churn God's Word, warping and re-defining it to sooth their conscience. To call me a hipocrite and hateful is to say the same to God almighty because these comments are not of my own intellect, opinion, or imvention...they are straight from God and His living, eternal, ever relavent Word. He said it, I'm just repeating it.

See comments in the OBama orders...thread, and please stop spamming any sodomite/transgender thread with your comprimised, misguided views. There's not one single person here who will latch on to your very warped logic so you're speaking to nothing but air. You're in the wrong place to even have considered spreading this nonscense and will convince no one. Maybe tell us a bit about yourself and we'll go from there if you're truly serious about these misguided views.
