Christian Summer Camp Fires 18 Year Old Counselor for Being Gay, Because Jesus

A Washington state 18-year old says the Christian summer camp he loves fired him as a counselor because he's gay.
Jace Taylor tells Q13 Fox that Firs Camps & Retreats told him, "we don't support homosexuality, and it's against the Bible."
Firs acknowledges the termination of Jace Taylor for his "sexuality."

"When it became evident in the application process that [Taylor] did not personally align with our statements of faith (in particular, one regarding sexuality) we determined we could not use him in this role," Firs Executive Director Tom Beaumont said in a statement, adding that Jace has worked at the camp before and is "well known and loved."

Calling it a "quandary," Beaumont says in "order to be consistent to our beliefs and our mission we felt compelled to pass on someone we truly liked."

2. Keep their eye on ?

What the hell does this mean ? Its pretty offensive to equate being gay with being a potential child molester. That's the kind of trope you hear from the right.

4. Consistency

So do they fire someone who eats shellfish? Do they fire someone who works at a bank? Does the camp itself do business with a bank that practices usury?

5. Satan will be so happy there......

These fake christians are yellow turds. They reject others because they worship satan and are his evil minions. I hope this guy sues and become so rich he can buy his own camp and make others happy.....

6. Usually under "ministerial exemption"

They will argue that the counselors are "ministering" to the campers, and thus can be required to abide by the tenets (however intolerant) of the church.

8. It's not illegal because of religious privilege.

They are allowed to hate, because religious beliefs are special.
