Junk Yard Blog has an entry on the new Illinois law that forces discrimination against gays to end, even in churches.
Do they not understand that, for most Christians, anyone who is flaunting a sexual relationship outside of marriage, gay or not, is not going to get hired at a church? Yes, it is true that most Christian churches are against homosexuality. But I’ve seen plenty of pastors and teachers fired for heterosexuality as well.
It’s legal for churches to not have to hire people who are not of their faith for church positions. Obviously a practicing gay would not be “of their faith.” Maybe they can get around it that way.
Although I think it is just plain wrong.
