KY Baptist Charity Rejects Proposal to Hire Gays; Had Legal Troubles for Yrs. for Firing Gay Worker

The Kentucky-based Baptist Charity called Sunrise Children's Service voted down a proposal on November 8 -- which was supported by the charity's president -- to allow hiring of openly gay individuals, the Christian Post website reports today (November 12, 2013).

Joyce Smith -- chairwoman of Sunrise's Board of Trustees -- said that the decision was made for the benefit of the exploited children the charity serves.

"With this decision, we are not promoting anything other than the physical, mental, and spiritual welfare of our children," said Smith.

For years, Sunrise has been the focus of legal issues surrounding its decision to fire an employee who was in a same-sex relationship.
