Licensing proposal could require lawyers to endorse homosexuality


One of the top lawyers in the nation in the battle to protect traditional marriage, historically Christian lifestyle choices, parental rights and the key freedoms provided by the U.S. Constitution is warning that there eventually could be no lawyers left to take up those disputes.

That's because of a recommendation before the State Bar of Arizona – the organization that licenses attorneys – to require all new lawyers to swear they won't let their personal religious perspective on homosexuality affect their representation of any client. Mathew Staver, chief of Liberty Counsel, warns that the proposal is just the "tip of the iceberg."

According to reports in Arizona, the state bar is considering a major change to its existing oath that requires lawyers to affirm they won't "permit considerations of gender, race, age, nationality, disability or social standing to influence my duty of care" to clients.

The proposal in Arizona is to add "sexual orientation" to that list.

The concept would demand that Christian lawyers affirm they would pursue child custody cases for lesbians and "marriage" rights for homosexuals just as they would pursue any other issue for clients, regardless of their religious perspective.

Not agreeing to the demand would end a Christian lawyer's career before it even starts, since attorneys cannot practice law without bar association permission.

Already, several dozen attorneys have sent a letter objecting to the plan, and concern has been raised by the online report.

"Are these lawyers going to be excluded from their profession because of their religious beliefs? Or will they have to give up their beliefs in order to continue practicing?" the report asked.

"The Catholic Church teaches that: 'homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.' They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.," Catholic Online continued. "Does this mean that all Catholic lawyers in the state of Arizona will now either have to apostatize from the faith or lose their jobs?"

Staver has argued in courts across the nation, including the U.S. Supreme Court, on a wide range of fundamental constitutional questions. He's appeared to discuss constitutional issues on "The O'Reilly Factor," "Hannity and Colmes," "Good Morning America," the "Today" show and others. He said Arizona's plan isn't unique, citing controversial provisions already in force in Minnesota and the District of Columbia.

But he said Arizona's proposal is broader, and therein could lie considerable discrimination against Christians.

"It is a disturbing trend," he said.
"It opens a wide door (against) people like us who defend traditional marriage," he said. "We're not going to represent someone who's engaged in the homosexual lifestyle and the issue deals with that matter.
"Obviously from our perspective, we would take that into consideration," he said.

Staver said the change actually would require Christian lawyers to endorse and support the homosexual lifestyle choice that their deeply held religious beliefs may not allow.

"What if you represent someone in a divorce and you're the attorney of record. Afterwards this person enters into a lesbian lifestyle and wants a change of custody. They want the child. That presents Christian attorneys with a conflict with their religious beliefs. Would (that Christian lawyer) want to continue to represent that person?" he asked. "It would be pushing that child into a homosexual lifestyle."

Staver said he's seen the threat to lawyers coming for some time already.

"We've talked about the fact one of the major threats coming down the road as Christian attorneys is bar regulations with regard to homosexuality," he said. "What we're seeing in Arizona is the tip of the iceberg.

"If they can license you out of defending traditional morality, they can eventually capture the whole court system. There would be nobody left to defend traditional marriage," he said.

Wild Thing's comment......

It says "Licensing proposal ", so maybe they will not put this through. Why oh why can't people leave things alone. The left is just not happy until they finish off every area that might have something to do with traditional values.

..... Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Thanks WT and Mark. 640 Million made it clear what their intentions are. It's written in their constitution under article's 11 - 53. All that's left is for the inauguration and the signing into law begins. It will only be stopped by a grass roots uprising and maybe a few twirling from the lamp posts. It's like the sex offenders being turned out into the community against the wishes of the people, the lawyers and judges insist in their rehabilitation amongst the society, they get upset when some of their subjects get strung up by the angry neighbors. We allow these assholes to govern our lives and they yield to the least common denominator. Revolt!!!

And what's wrong with a traditional family? A wife, a husband and a few kidlets running around the house and the yard? I'm so tired of hearing them whine and complain about everything under the sun! I chose mine and they chose theirs. They need to get over themselves and realize they aren't God and shut up about it. It's old and tiring.

One of the big defenses in San Francisco of the 'gay' community was they were only seeking equal rights and NOT promoting their life-style.

I guess after the latest proposition, in California, that was soundly defeated, now all bets are off on the forcing of their deviant, decadent lifestyle on the rest of us. The non promoting idea was a lie in the first place. Especially in the Public Schools where it is clearly being forced onto NORMAL children as young as 5. So this is just an accelerated step in that direction.

Vigilance is the only way to survive this and fight them every step of the way. Until they are dirven back into the closet.

Jack, wow thank you for the link, I never saw that before.

From many things I have read about Barack and Michelle, they are both very, big time pro things like that LGBT group, and all gay causes.

Lynn, I agree....."I'm so tired of hearing them whine and complain about everything under the sun!"

What they don't realize or don't want to is what if the world caved in and all the various sick things had parades etc. like they do. Child molesters parade, murderes parade, I mean where does one say enough no more this is wrong. I am so tied of authority caving in to these groups that whine loud and demand loud, but in reality are not even close to being in the majority of even the right thing to do before God and values.

Mark, your so right, I remember that, that was their so called premise and that was all they wanted. But like you said it was not all they wanted. They had plans for more and more like the horrible things they force innocent kids to do for school projects.
