Antidiscrimination Act called ‘Anti-Gay Bullying’ Bill (April 2, 2014)

The Religious Viewpoints Antidiscrimination Act recently passed by the Tennessee legislature requires our public schools to treat students with religious beliefs the same way they treat students without religious beliefs.

Yet advocates for the homosexual agenda publicly decried the bill, saying that it “actually helps organize anti-gay bullying.”  Why would they say that?  Because, they fear a fellow student might say they thought homosexual behavior was wrong.  And that might offend someone.

But if opinions about the rightness or wrongness of certain behaviors can be squelched simply because those opinions might offend someone or because someone else might take those words to justify committing an abusive act, then the First Amendment is meaningless.

Christians need to understand that their ability to proclaim the truth of Christ is being eroded under the guise of just wanting people to be nice.
