    I can't say that he NEVER tells the truth. It's just that, when he does, he's just very creative in the way he dresses it.

    I should note that I wasn't directing that at ff per se, as it is a saying I picked up years ago (hence the quotation marks) and use from time to time.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Understood - and I don't find ff a particularly dishonest fellow - I believe that he believes the incredible distortions of truth he purveys. He's just so frequently incredibly incorrect.

    Pretty sure that is already the law, that religious organizations can discriminate based on religion. Why wouldn't they? Why should a Muslim organization have to hire Christians, or vice versa?



    Can Religious Organizations Discriminate?

    Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 generally prohibits any sort of employment discrimination based on sex, race, national origin, or religion. However, there is a notable exception to the rule: religious organizations are allowed to discriminate on the basis of their religion.

    The reason is because they have the right to free exercise of religion. It also has a basis in common sense. For instance, a Catholic school would want to hire Catholic nuns rather than atheists, and the same goes with priests, etc. This exception encompasses all employees of a religious organization, and not just those in the top tier.

    So, a gay-hating (he gets his hating instructions from the Bible) politico, awards a government contract to a gay-hating contractor (who hates gays because he likes government contracts), and this is all fair and reasonable to an Evangelical Christian. The poor gay just pays his taxes as usual.

    No, that characterization is not complete bollix at all.

    Poor gay guy can go work at any number of other jobs where he is not "hated" by the evil Christians and Muslims.

    And the contractor has be already be a religious company.

    Your use of "gay" in place of "gay person" is problematic and dehumanizing. Suggest checking your privilege and being more careful with your language in future.
