BLOG“Discrimination:” The Conversation Killer

By Sarah Kramer Posted on: | June 03, 2015

In the United States, the word “discrimination” comes with a lot of baggage – evoking images of slavery, white-only drinking fountains, and segregated schools.

Proponents of sexual orientation, gender identity (SOGI) laws, however, like to throw around the word “discrimination” to describe Christian beliefs – and the actions based on those beliefs – regarding sexuality and marriage. And, when these laws are put in place, they are often used to punish individuals who simply wish to live and work according to their faith.

In the following video, Legal Counsel Ken Connelly discusses how SOGI advocates have manipulated the meaning of discrimination to further their cause.

Take Action:

  • Be vigilant in your city and stay up-to-date with the proposals that come before your city government. If you hear that a SOGI law is being considered, contact us at info@alliancedefendingfreedom.org or 1-800-835-5233.
  • If you are, or you know, a business owner who is being threatened for operating your business according to your religious beliefs, or you have questions about your right to do so, ADF can help.  Contact us and we will evaluate whether we can assist in your situation.
  • Nonprofit organizations are also threatened by these ordinances. Any organization that holds true to what Scripture teaches about gender and sexuality may be at risk. Alliance Defending Freedom has developed a free legal guide for churches, religious schools, and other religious ministries that will protect your rights to operate according to your faith.
