Faith-Based Ministries Must Submit to Same-Sex Agenda or Lose Funding
Remember the promise made by many people that same-sex marriage legislation would not affect affect people or organizations that don’t believe in same-sex marriage? No one would be forced to comply with anything related to homosexuality. Live and let live!
How is it possible that some people can be so gullible? Politicians in both parties must lie to stay in power. Since there is no accountability for lying, they can lie with impunity. The people who re-elect them don’t mind the lies since they benefit by the lies.
“The Obama Administration is poised to require faith-based recipients of federal grants to accept applications from LGBT individuals, according to a report published today by the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam).
“By executive order last summer, President Obama amended the Johnson-era federal order on non-discrimination in hiring by federal contractors to include non-discrimination based on ‘sexual orientation and gender identity.’ That order has roiled faith-based groups.”
This new decree by Obama and Co. should have been expected. It was inevitable.
Let me say, however, that what upsets me even more is that so-called “faith-based groups” have been using confiscated money for their organizations and that they are “roiled” over the potential loss of that money if they don’t comply.
They never should have taken the money. If they can’t stand on their own, then they shouldn’t stand at all.
Let’s see if they were serve God or money. No one can serve two masters (Matt. 6:24).
Some years ago, the courts ruled that colleges that did not comply with Title IX requirements would not get federal education money, and students that received federal money for education (e.g., G.I. Bill), could not use that money at those schools.
As far as I know, only two schools refused all such government money: Grove City College in Pennsylvania and Hillsdale College in Michigan.
“Under President Dr. Charles S. MacKenzie, the college was the plaintiff-appellee in the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case in 1984, Grove City College v. Bell. The ruling came seven years after the school’s refusal to sign a Title IX compliance form, which would have subjected the entire school to federal regulations, even ones not yet issued. The court ruled 6–3 that acceptance by students of federal educational grants fell under the regulatory requirements of Title IX, but it limited the application to the school’s financial aid department.
“In 1988, new legislation subjected every department of any educational institution that received federal funding to Title IX requirements. In response, Grove City College withdrew from the Pell Grant program entirely beginning with the 1988–89 academic year, replacing such grants to students with its own program, the Student Freedom Fund. In October 1996, the college withdrew from the Stafford Loan program, providing entering students with replacements on better terms through a program with PNC Bank.
You want to turn the nation around, then stop accepting “government” money. It’s not the government’s money. It came out of somebody’s paycheck. Voting for people to steal money from some people so it can be given to other people is theft even if it’s by majority vote.
This goes for government (public) schools as well. Not only are they government indoctrination centers, but they operate on theft.
