Town clerks in states with legalized Gay 'marriage' will have to change their religious beliefs or lose their jobs. Because town clerks are require to participate in marriages, and because Gay 'marriage' is now falsely considered a 'right', town clerks who are faithful to their Catholic, Evangelical Christian, or Orthodox Jewish faith are now not allowed to hold such positions.
Clerks have even been threatened with criminal prosecution if they so much as ask the Gay couple to go to another clerk. So much for accommodating diversity in the workplace!
A similar thing is happening with social service agencies. Many religious groups have their own social service agencies that, among other things, find adoptive homes for children in need of homes. This started before there were non-religious social service agencies! But in Gay 'marriage' states Christian and Jewish social service agencies must either change their religion or shut their doors.
It reminds me of the early stages in Nazi Germany when Jews began to be driven out of their jobs and out of public life. It wasn't anywhere near as bad as what came later, but it was still bad.
Does that mean I think that death camps for Christians and Orthodox Jews are imminent? Of course not! They will merely lose their jobs for 'discrimination' and be denied the right to homeschool their kids or send them to 'discriminatory' religious schools--- if they don't lose their kids altogether for being 'haters'. Their aim will probably be 'one generation and done', like the animal rights plan for exterminating domestic animals. They don't realize how many people BECOME Christians after being raised as good secularists/atheists!
I don't blame the average Gay person for this discrimination. As a Gay woman myself I know how hard it is to come to the realization that you are Gay, and to worry that you are therefore flawed and unworthy. You start feeling so insecure, and the Gay agenda keeps establishing an ever-receding goal for being accepted as Gay--- once it was enough that your parents didn't kick you out of the house, next they had to accept your Gay partner, and now unless your parents are willing to abandon their religion if that religion won't accept Gay marriage, you aren't REALLY accepted.
It's a matter of low self esteem among Gay people. We grow up surrounded by Gay jokes, snickers and pointing (even from people who would vote for Gay 'marriage' like good lemmings), when we hit the teenage years our first crushes are met by embarrassed stares rather than the possibility of a first kiss. So the false promises of the Progressive/Socialist movement and the Gay activists are very tempting.
The real answer to the Gay person's problem lies in the realm of faith. And not the kind of Metropolitan Community Church* faith where the pastor on Sunday morning jokes about how the congregation must be tired from all their late-night Saturday partying, and where no moral rules regarding human sexuality between consenting adults are taught.
Jesus accepts us. The Bible nowhere states that having a Gay identity or being romantically attracted to same-sex persons is a sin. It doesn't even mention persons with this attraction (any more than it mentions the possibility of being born a hermaphrodite--- a birth defect in which the person has characteristics of both sexes). It's only the actual sexual behavior--- which includes 'lusting in the heart', also known as 'entertaining impure thoughts'---- which is condemned, and it is condemned for both Gay and straight people alike.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church on homosexuality
2358. The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
*The Metropolitan Community Church is a denomination of Gay Christians who do not accept the Biblical teaching against homosexual acts.
