ERLC: Law does not include gay, transgender rights
Non-discrimination protections in federal workplace law do not cover "sexual orientation" or "gender identity," the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and other faith-based organizations have told the U.S. Supreme Court.
The ERLC signed onto friend-of-the-court briefs filed Aug. 23 by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) that urge the high court to rule that the classification "sex" in Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act does not include "sexual orientation" or "gender identity."

Well brother, the below is "one" reason why you and I refer to ourselves as strangers and aliens in this lost and fallen world.
Many politicians and judges take an oath unto God to obey the constitution of the U.S., not Godâs word. Most of us would have to agree that there will be conflicts between the 2. If someone takes an oath unto the Lord, then they are basically saying the constitution must come first. Therefore, they are taking an oath unto the Lord to disobey the Lord??
That is why I have always said that it is impossible for any executive level politician to be a âpracticingâ Christian and hold public office.
Hope you are having a good day; stranger and alien!
