    [​IMG]Nationwide poll results released Tuesday reveal that most white evangelicals in the United States favor laws granting the LGBT community special privileges in the workforce, housing and public accommodations – in the name of so-called “anti-discrimination.”

    Another case of their elected leaders thinking they know better than the voters.

    Hmmmm
    I would need to know more. I am completely against discrimination of anyone based on race or sexual.preference or gender or even political affiliation. I am also against giving special privileges to any group. If we want everyone to be considered equal and treated as equal than the laws governing everyone should be equal.
    If they are addressing punishments foe discrimination and not giving special privileges I'd be on board.

    So much for conservatives hating homosexuals.
    Maybe the Smollett's of the world should do more reading and less scheming.

    I'm glad to hear you support the government implementing protections for LGBTs. Would you go into a bit of detail about what type of protections you'd like to see?

    The American people have moved quickly on this issue. The progress has been impressive. I remember as recently as ten years ago when I said none of my business I dont care about LBQT. I got grief from people. Now everyone pretty much agrees or keeps quiet.

    I'm surprised by the numbers too; seems a considerable jump from a few years ago. Though it's good news that even in the Bible belt, things are a changin, seems there is still some ways to go. But ya gotta love the link...If you follow it through to the actual article commenting on the survey. The author, Michael F. Haverluck, laments the idea LGBTQ "agenda" winning out, and as has been the norm of those who remain steadfastly LGBT, he pits the gain of rights of gays and lesbians as a loss for Christians.

    Shouldn't this poll be conducted by the pew research center?
