KY Baptist org. realizes Uncle Sam's ATM access code is 'E-Q-U-A-L'

by Jeremy Hooper

Here's a very interesting story out of Kentucky that's stirring up all kinds of consternation among southern evangelicals. Basically, a Southern Baptist children's services agency is admitting that, soon enough, it's going to have to change its LGBT-exclusionary employment practices if it wants to keep receiving federal funds. Since the organization does, in fact, want this sort of government subsidization, it's on the cusp of changing its employment policies now, even before the passage of federal law.

I say it's interesting because we see the government money question come up a lot on the other side. The anti-LGBT groups act like they have some sort of "right" to take the cash but kick the LGBT people to the curb, and they staunchly defend this supposed "right" when it comes to the adoption agencies, foster care services, state clinics, or any other operations that want to have it both ways. It's kind of new, different, and refreshing, frankly, to hear an organization that is so clearly anti-LGBT in its point of view admit the truth about funding and how the org. must adapt if it wants to continue to receive it.

Render unto Caesar.
