There are forces in America that want to make it mandatory for U.S. churches to hire GAYS. Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney General, is already in communication with groups that support this attack on our U.S. Constitutional right to practice our religion without government interference.
Included in the groups are the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee, B'nai B'rith International, Central Conference of American Rabbis, Hadassah, Jewish Council for Public Affairs, National Council of Jewish Women, Na'amat USA, Rabbinical Assembly, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism and Women of Reform Judaism.

Yogy akarta Principles: ‚ÄúPRINCIPLE 21. THE RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF THOUGHT, CONSCIENCE AND RELIGION. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

‚ÄúThe so-called Yogyakarta Principles implicitly calls for governments to invade religion and override religious doctrines or practices. This imposition contradicts the very purpose of my church which is to become morally clean, pure, and undefiled from the world.‚ÄĚ ‚Äď Reid Baer
