A refresher course on the Ten Commandments needed for some Shelby Co Churches
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law.
(The Decalogue preceding Rite I of the Holy Eucharist, Book of Common Prayer)
Take a look. Some Churches are complaining about the addition of sexual orientation to Shelby County's nondiscrimination ordinance. They cite a whole list of what sexual orientation means. The problem is that the ordinance also defines what it means by sexual orientation:
Sexual Orientation means a person’s real or perceived sexual preference (i.e.
heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality).
Oops. You're busted. You're lying in public to a lot of people about a lot of people.
Perhaps someone can minister to this coalition, provide them with copies of the Ten Commandments, and call them to repentance.
