If you believe a man sloshing his junk around in another man’s feces-filled colon is “normal”, then I’m not the one who has a problem understanding the meaning of the word “normal.”

Remember all those instances of individuals of the LGBT so-called “community” who would launch civil lawsuits or even pressed criminal charges against churches, Religious Orders, or even church-related businesses (private schools, etc.) claiming they were being discriminated against due to their living the “homosexual lifestyle”?

Of course, a five-minute internet search will cite hundreds upon hundreds of instances proving such.

After all, if the official teaching of Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Christians, Evangelical Protestants, or Traditional Judaism adhere to the dogma that active homosexuality is intrinsically evil and/or an immoral form of behavior, shouldn’t those same Faiths and faith-based businesses have the right actually to live their faith out-loud?

After all, there are millions upon million of citizens that believe that their Biblically-based moral beliefs just happen to also be moral absolutes. Not something that is malleable and happens to blow in the direction of the prevailing cultural winds.

On a personal note: Yes, Jesus did an awful lot of forgiving. Sadly, many seem to forget that after Christ would forgive any given person, they first had to confess their sin, admit they were in the wrong, lastly, vow to sin no more.

But back to the topic at hand. Newsmax is reporting that Federal Judge Reed O’Connor of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, has ruled that “businesses with sincerely held religious beliefs can be shielded from LGBT discrimination claims.”

As noted by reporter Charlie McCarthy (emphasis mine);

A federal judge in Texas ruled that businesses with sincerely held religious beliefs can be shielded from LGBT discrimination claims, The Dallas Morning News reported.

The decision carves out exceptions to sexual orientation and gender identity protections previously granted by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Morning News reported.

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor ruled Sunday that Braidwood Management Inc., a Christian healthcare companies operator in Katy, Texas, can avoid LGBT anti-bias protections under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the First Amendment, the Morning News reported.

The anti-bias protections stem from 1964 Civil Rights Act Title VII, which says an employer can claim a religious exemption if it can show it is a “religious corporation, association, educational institution, or society.”

The judge also said religious nonprofits, such as Bear Creek Bible Church in Keller, Texas, can refuse to hire and can fire LGBT employees under Title VII.
