The only way to prevent space rental issues is to limit rentals to members only. I don’t know if there are tax laws that are impacted by that. I also know that rental income can be significant for some congregations.
The phrase, “is nothing sacred” comes to mind.
Will they be forcing the mosques to rent their facilities to homosexuals?
Didn’t think so.
so much for separation of church and state
more like submission of the church to the (secular) state
“According to the document, local employers would also be required to allow employees to dress according to their gender identity. The law will even allow transgenders to use restrooms, shower facilities, and locker rooms based on their gender identity instead of their birth sex.”
No. Just because some delusional individual wants to pretend to be something that he is not is no justification for anyone else to be required to have to “play along” with the charade.
Under the same oppressive government logic, religion MUST be allowed back into public schools, public spaces. After all it is all about FAIR. Right?
This is wonderful news to my ears, all these years the leftist churches have supported the socialist agenda and even supported parts of the homosexual agenda.
I would love to see the looks on these good little socialist church leaders when the drag queens come to rent their church to be married in........and the flock never comes back or gives them money ever again.
I hate the way the GLBTQ community keep pushing for more.
At first they wanted Tolerance in the vein of “Not beating up people who are queer on the streets for how they behave in their private lives” Which is fine, Tolerance is fine and dandy just don’t “piss in my cornflakes” and I won’t piss in yours, whatever.
But now like little children with mommy and daddy issues they want out and out “Acceptance” to the point that the LARGE CLUMSY HAND of the GOVERNMENT is involved in FORCING it upon those who mildly dislike their lifestyle choices.
You cannot legislate Acceptance, it is a social meme and thus cannot be legislated or forced on an unwilling majority public. When it is legislated there is always a backlash by those being forced, those short sighted morons over at the GLBTQ side don’t see they are doing more long term damage to their “cause” because of this simple fact.
They have forgotten the difference between Tolerance and Acceptance and they crossed that line a LONG time ago. Acceptance is another form of Entitlement in the way the far left uses it.
They are like the small child who keeps screaming LOVE ME, LOVE ME, LOVE ME!!!!, in a shrill and off putting scream, which makes it impossible for anyone to ACTUALLY LOVE them because they are so damned annoying.
Also the fact that the organizations that were formed in order to stop the deadly beatings of homosexuals have more or less achieved their goal YEARS AGO, but the people in those organizations never declared victory and disbanded/scaled back, they became a self supporting meme that keeps searching for more and more things to justify themselves. Ironically this has the effect of sometimes ignoring the modern day beatings of Homosexuals who are not “on the same page” or worse yet using the modern day beatings as justification for pushing Acceptance instead of Tolerance.
The civil rights movement also suffers from this as well.
They are not entitled to the usage of a PRIVATE CHURCH if they want to use it to get gay-married. They should simply find a church that does support such a thing and stop the whining like a small spoiled child.
If a private club like Augusta National Golf Club can’t be forced to admit women, I don’t see how a church can be forced to do anything either.
I hope the people in this area get rid of the people who are doing this. What about the individual rights of the normal? Where in the Constitution does it say individuals must not only tolerate but accept with open arms the most vile and disgusting of behaviors?
Homosexuality isn't referred to as an abomination for nothing. It explains it all perfectly.
They never should have let the homos out of the insane asylums. They were put there for a good reason. That was one of the worst mistakes our government has ever made. The world will be paying for that mistake for at least another generation - until the filth of it all comes to light.
Easy solution: only rent to those designated as ministers by the parish. Thus if someone desires to rent the facility, the parish will have a written vote to elect them as a minister of the parish prior to renting. (Maybe not officially renting, but making “an offering” in support of “their” parish. Other big advantages in that, too, as it avoids HUD rules.)
There is a subtle distinction in the law, determined in a recent Supreme Court case, that clergy do not come under EEOC rules, and that religions and churches may hire, fire and do business with them at will.
I’m sure some legal details would need to be ironed out first, but if done properly, it would return the right of ownership to the church, not bureaucrats. Which would be a huge victory.
