The Bentonville School Board in Arkansas is currently debating whether or not to “add sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of protected statuses under the School District’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy.”
You’d have to be a pretty horrible person to oppose that, since leaving it out would allow LGBT teachers to be fired purely on the basis of their sexual orientation.
Unfortunately, some of those horrible people are on the school board.
Like Rebecca Powers, who made this comment on Facebook following a student-led demonstration in favor of changing the policy:
Isaac had criticized some of the Church’s teachings and this trial is his last chance to explain himself. If disfellowshipped, Isaac’s friends and family members still in the Church could be prohibited from ever speaking to him again.

A pastor committing a crime isn’t even newsworthy anymore, but when the church is complicit in the problem, it’s worth mentioning.
Boyd Watson Holder Jr. (below), the pastor of Victory Apostolic Church in Kingsport, Tennessee, was arrested this week after a grand jury found him guilty of swiping $60,000 from the church’s bank account.
