Of all the government protected classes of official victims gays (now LGBTs) are defined by the most questionable definition.
The other victims are defined by physical appearance whereas LGBTs Gays are defined by their behavior, although it is claimed to be their ‘feelings’ or ‘desires’; but it is their behavior that is protected, not their being or 'feelings'. American NEVER outlawed 'feelings' so the whole thing is based on a faulty premise.
Let me debate those libs LOL
The argument over innateness is a red herring that plays into the homosexual lobby's hands. The reference point needs to be shifted from the individual, whose inner convolutions are unknowable, to society. Whereas society experiences your race as something you are, it experiences your sexuality as something you do, regardless of whether it's innate or not. And society has a right to pass laws that take into account what you do. That's what makes gay marriage not a civil rights issue.
“The resolution on same-sex marriage and civil rights includes a statement that the SBC stands against “any form or gay-bashing, whether disrespectful attitudes, hateful rhetoric, or hate-incited actions.”
But even with those disclaimers, statements such as this one could hurt evangelism efforts because they are likely to be objectionable to many people who are “not necessarily affirming, but also not rejecting” of gay rights issues, Key said.”
The Gospel starts with the call to REPENT. If one accepts sin, there is nothing to be saved FROM.
“McKissic, who is black, said it was “an unfair comparison” for gays to equate same-sex marriage with civil rights because there is not incontrovertible scientific evidence that homosexuality is an innate characteristic, like skin color.
“They’re equating their sin with my skin,” he said.”
There is no right to be a PERVERT!
If you chose to be a pervert you alone are responsible for the problems that choice causes you

But you can be reading this while I am deciding to ping the Baptist list or just wait and see if it happens anyway.
“. . . in a historic move that strives to erase its legacy of racism, . .”
Was this a declaration made by the Southern Baptist body or is a pure surmise on the part of the article’s author? I believe it is the latter which makes this article wholly subjective.
Is the New Black Prez of the Southern Baptists an Obama booster?
