A 202-year-old Bible company in Philadelphia will require that employees agree to not have sex outside of marriage or resign.

The American Bible Society, is a non-profit that translates and distributes Bibles. The company defines marriage as between a man and a woman. Therefore LGBT couples and sexually active heterosexual employees would be forced to leave.

President and CEO Roy Peterson wrote in a statement to Religion News: “We did this because we believe a staff made up of people with a deep and personal connection to the Bible will bring unity and clarity as we continue our third century of ministry.”

Peterson continued: “We understand there are differing views on these matters. This decision does not signal intent to advocate or champion any cause other than increased engagement with the Bible.”

So far nine people have quit, and the new policy will take effect in January 2019.

Jeremy Gimbel, 34, has worked for the company for 10 years. Gimbel is openly gay, and said it’s sad that he has to leave.

“I was very happy where I was,” Gimbel said. “I loved the team I worked with. I loved what I was doing. It was hard to come to terms with the fact that I was being forced out after nearly 10 years of my life.”

With both Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler's seats at stake -- as well as control of the U.S. Senate -- Republicans have been working overtime to correct the impression that voter fraud led to the state's 16 Electoral College votes going to former Vice President Joe Biden and cost Trump a second term.

CNBC’s Rick Santelli ripped as ‘psychopath’ for on-air ‘meltdown’ over COVID-19 restrictions

Published

on

CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin and Rick Santelli clashed over coronavirus restrictions, setting off another round of discussion on social media.

The conservative Santelli loudly insisted that bars and restaurants, which are shut down in many areas, were no more dangerous than large retailers, which have mostly been allowed to stay open, and Sorkin cut him off.

“Rick, just as a public-health and public-service announcement for the audience, the difference between a big-box retailer and a restaurant or, frankly, even a church, are so different it’s unbelievable,” Sorkin said, as Santelli kept interrupting. “Going into a big-box retailer, you’re wearing a mask.”
