San Antonio Proposal Could Bar Christians From City Council

Have any of ya'll heard about this story?

LINK

quote:

Churches across San Antonio are expressing outrage over a proposed anti-discrimination law that would protect LGBT workers but would not provide a religious exemption and would effectively prohibit anyone who opposes homosexuality from holding public office or getting a city contract.


quote:

Critics argue that the ordinance could ban Christians who believe homosexuality is a sin from serving on the city council.
They also believe the ordinance would also ban the city from doing business with anyone who fails to espouse politically correct views and businesses run by people of faith would be subject to criminal penalties if they refused to provide services that conflict with their religious beliefs related to homosexuality.


Thoughts?

Before anyone says there is an "assault" (or whatever the buzzword is right now) on Christians, remember that 7 states have laws prohibiting atheists from holding public office.

also unconstitutional

and before you have to ask it

yes for muslims and budist or whatever example you bring up its unconstitutional.

This is a clear violation of the separation of Church and State.

Religious beliefs do not supersede local laws.

the government must also not do anything that would establish a religion or non religion.

aka saying that christians are bared from serving on city council.

Also many will argue that because the constitution protects freedom of religion and the free practice of religion than any government law that either prohibits someone from practicing their faith fully or forcing them to do something that is contrary to their deeply held beliefs is also unconstitutional.

So what types of contracts would a person be in that would make them commit a homosexual supporting act for the government?

This is probably going to turn into a "Christians are being persecuted against" thread. I think that notion is ridiculous .

glad to see we agree

and I won't bring up the persecution of the Church at-least in this country. There are some clear parts of the world that Christians are persecuted by radical muslims but that doesn't fit into this topic.

I know what the endgame is, and I've said it numerous times.

But forget that. Is this not discrimantion against Christians if something like this passed?

What law says words uttered prohibit you from public service if a legislative body takes offense?
