The Supreme Court has issued its decision in the sexual orientation and gender identity "non-discrimination" cases before it - Bostock vs. Clayton County, Georgia, Altitude Express vs. Zarda, and R. G. and G. R. Harris Funeral Home vs. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  The Court has ruled that laws against discrimination based on "sex" include protection for sexual orientation and "transgender" status.  This ruling will likely have a significant impact on the Church's ministries, as well as society at large.  Please click the link to help utilize this opportunity to witness to the truth of the human person.  Key Truths About Redefining Human Sexuality
