Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice Purges Christian Chaplains

The Supreme Court’s tyrannical homosexual marriage ruling is achieving its purpose. It has opened the door to the official repression of Christianity:
Chaplain David Wells was told he could either sign a state-mandated document promising to never tell inmates that homosexuality is “sinful” or else the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice would revoke his credentials.
“We could not sign that paper,” Chaplain Wells told me in a telephone call from his home in Kentucky. “It broke my heart.”
The Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice revoked his volunteer credentials as an ordained minister – ending 13 years of ministry to underage inmates at the Warren County Regional Juvenile Detention Center.
“We sincerely appreciate your years of service and dedication to the youth served by this facility,” wrote Superintendent Gene Wade in a letter to Wells. “However, due to your decision, based on your religious convictions, that you cannot comply with the requirements outlined in DJJ Policy 912, Section IV, Paragraph H, regarding the treatment of LGBTQI youth, I must terminate your involvement as a religious volunteer.”
Congrats, Democrats. A good person has been stopped from doing good work. You must be very proud.
This doesn’t apply only to Wells:
Wells said that every volunteer in their church received the letter – as did a Baptist church in a nearby community.
Chaplains like Wells cannot easily avoid the issue of homosexuality because many troubled youth are troubled as a result of homosexual abuse.
“They told us we could not preach that homosexuality is a sin – period,” Wells told me. “We would not have even been able to read Bible verses that dealt with LGBT issues.”
For the record, Wells said they’ve never used hateful or derogatory comments when dealing with the young inmates.
“They are defining hateful or derogatory as meaning what the Bible says about homosexuality,” he told me.
Anyone who says that the prohibition of mainstream Christian views explicitly supported by the Bible can be reconciled with the First Amendment is lying. But then, the entire gay agenda is based on lies.
