Peter LaBarbera is the president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.

Jim began this program with a shocking fact. Today there are evangelical groups that are linking arms with the LGBT movement to assist in closing churches that condemn homosexuality.

He cited WND.com that has noted two major organizations, the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and the National Association of Evangelicals, that have endorsed adding sexual orientation and gender identity protections to federal non-discrimination laws.

Peter described this effort as proposing a compromise that would carve out religious exemptions for them, while at the same time creating federal gay rights and transgender rights that would be imposed on the rest of the nation.

This issue is based upon 3 points. The first is that God created human beings in His image (male and female) and that sexual relations be reserved for the marriage of one man and one woman.

Point number two urges Congress to support long-standing civil rights laws and First Amendment guarantees that protect free religious exercise.

Point number three communicates that no one should face violence, harassment, or unjust discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation or gender identity.

It’s the third point that raises concerns. Who defines ‘unjust discrimination’? What about the Christian baker, florist, photographer or wedding venue owner? What about the violation of their religious beliefs and convictions?

This third point is the central theme of discussion and you can hear how it played out when you review this important edition of Crosstalk.
