|Homosexuals Deserve Equality Rights Not Petty Disputes|
The State of Michigan still allows homosexuals to be fired from their job for being gay.
As a result, certified paralegal and author, B. L. Fowler developed a new book Why Homosexuals Deserve Equality Rights-An Empowerment Guide. After all, he is all too familiar with the challenges homosexuals face, especially living in Michigan.
Still despite his endless uphill battle for equality rights, he has finally stepped forward to take on a dynamic plight. In fact, in 2008, he filed a civil complaint against Michigan based Bible publisher, Zondervan Corporation; for implementing the term “homosexual” in many of the Bibles it publishes. And surprisingly, his argument not only included the Elliot-Larsen Civil Right Act, but he also pointed out several scripture to support his claim.
As a result, this former Christian Writer’s Guild member and Universal Life Church Ordained Minister set out on a quest and approached the United States Supreme Court, with an enthralling Writ of Certiorari. Afterwards, he was compelled to develop a thought-provoking study guide to aid LGBT members, with creditable court rulings from both lower courts and the Supreme Court.
Interestingly, author B. L. Fowler was reared in a home built on religious beliefs. In fact, he admits his dad threatened to break both his legs before allowing him to be gay. Then adds, “My mother was a little different; she chastised me with verbal and physical assaults from time-to-time.”
Even worse, he says, “Kids at school often teased me and chased me home from school, because I was gay.”
And like other LGBT people, author B. L. Fowler admits he faced many other challenges growing up. However, today the accomplished author doesn’t hide his homosexuality any longer. Instead, he says, “Today’s society has changed tremendously towards accepting homosexuals. So why should I remain closeted?”
Furthermore, he feels the issue LGBT members face towards gaining equality rights in America is solely based on religious traditions. He says, “Many religious followers neglect to understand who revises the scripture and/or realizes who actually implemented the term “homosexual” within the Bible.”
