British churches may be forced to hire gay and lesbian staff beginning next year if the Equity Bill passes. This makes sense. Given the logic of gay rights advocacy, and its comparison of gay rights to civil rights, if a church cannot decline to hire someone on the basis of their race, then neither can they decline to hire someone on the basis of their sexual orientation. This may be coming to a U.S. church near you! Remember New Hampshire? Their House of Representatives initially voted down a same-sex marriage bill because they didn’t want to allow religious organizations to opt-out of participating in same-sex ceremonies. The trend is moving toward decreased religious liberty.
