Special job guarantees and protections for homosexuals, transgenders and others is “bad public policy,” according to the Family Research Council, because it could open up ministries and people of faith to lawsuits whenever someone feels “aggrieved.”

The issue is before the Senate this week as it considers the “Employment Non-Discrimination Act,” which would install in federal law special job protections and guarantees for homosexuals and transgenders as well as those choosing other alternative sexual lifestyles.

Seven members of the GOP sided with Democrats on Monday to break down the filibuster threshold, and a final vote could come within days.
