I Prayed have prayed
Father, we ask that you would put a backbone and a conscience in the corporations of America. Give Christians around the country the courage and conviction to stand up for what’s right. We need your help, Lord.

This case is one of many battles with big corporations over the LGBT issue, and thankfully the EEOC allowed the flight attendants to sue. We need to pray that companies would at least stay neutral on the issue, not punish Christians and side with the LGBT activists.

From The Center Square. A pair of flight attendants are suing Alaska Airlines, claiming they were discriminated against because of their religious beliefs when they were fired.

Get prayer updates from IFA.

 

The controversy began when Lacey Smith and Marli Brown posted in a community forum about the “Equality Act,” a controversial LGBTQ bill. Smith and Brown say Alaska Airlines announced its support for the legislation and told employees they were welcome to comment…

Smith wrote on the forum asking, “As a company, do you think it’s possible to regulate morality?” Brown posted a question asking, “Does Alaska support: endangering the Church, encouraging suppression of religious freedom, obliterating women rights and parental rights?”

Smith and Brown say they were both investigated and later fired and were told their questions were “hateful” and “offensive.”

The pair then reported the incident and filed charges of religious discrimination to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which has now given them authorization to file a lawsuit.

The flight attendants’ legal team [From First Liberty Institute] argued in its filing that Alaska Airlines violated Title VII protections against discrimination based on, among other things, religion.

“Under Title VII, it is an unlawful employment practice for an employer ‘to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual’s … religion,’” the filing said, pointing out that religion is defined as “all aspects of religious observance and practice, as well as belief….”

First Liberty’s legal team said this case could send a message to other employers.

“Employees should be free to respectfully talk with each other about their different beliefs and perspectives without fear of being fired,” [Stephanie] Taub [of First Liberty] said. “The case has the potential to send a message to employers across the country that they cannot discriminate against employees of faith.”

Lord God, thwart these evil plans for globalism that are commencing TODAY. Do not let the power that has been misused via the COVID pandemic continue to be perpetrated. We pray that increased vaccine mandates will not stand. Do not let Biden cede United States health authority to the World Health Organization. Make all ratified, freedom-stealing amendments and treaties, worldwide, become null and void. We pray that all global health magnates would not have consensus in plans they may seek to make. Let all other related, and unrelated, plans harmful to sovereignty and freedom fall apart, fruitless. Annihilate the World Health Organization’s ratified Pandemic Treaty. Preserve our freedoms, worldwide. Destroy the New World Order and the Great Reset

Jesus, we pray that every plan to implement global control, including the plans of the World Health Organization, would be frustrated, destroyed, and come to nothing

Father I ask for your justice and righteousness to prevail concerning these flight attendants. Bless them as they are persecuted for righteousness sake, cause Alaska airlines to give them their positions back and retract all offenses. Thank you for working all things for the good for those who love you according to your riches in glory. In your mighty name Jesus!

Appears to be an attempt to craft a law or audience to think that constitution is not protecting people but religion, the two fired workers know otherwise, We pray for courage and determination see our liberties come from God and not corporations.

This one is very touchy. Personally, what one does in their own home is their business, but they don’t leave it in their own home. They show it off because they know it upsets people that follow the Biblical teaching of our Lord. They are right. It upsets me, and it encourages others to “try it out.”

When I was in the service, I had a visit into my cubical from a woman with masculine behavior and wore clothes as close to men’s as she could. I asked her to leave but she wouldn’t. We got in a scuffle, and I hit her. I said, “Now will you leave?” She said, “No.” She seemed driven to make a move. I hit her a couple more times and she finally left. It’s like I was dealing with a demonic something.

As a private company, why are they endorsing legislation that has nothing to do with regulating business? Then to invite employees to comment, but really mean that they can only post comments that are in agreement with their stance is unethical! Lord, we come against this culture of stifling any opposing views! We thank You for these employees who were brave enough to speak out, and now persistent enough to follow through with a lawsuit. We pray for their success, and that they would not only be reinstated, but that they would gain financially, and that the company would truly embrace the concept of free speech!

I have first-hand experience as a Flight Attendant for Alaska Airlines and was discriminated against because I referenced a Bible verse that quoted God’s Word regarding homosexuality. I hope the many male homosexuals come to a saving knowledge of God, His Word and His love and salvation to all who come to Him in Spirit and in Truth. Amen and Amen

So PROUD of these courageous women!

Heavenly Father, please bless your faithful elect, Lacey Smith and Marli Brown, and bless their lawsuit with victory, that it will protect Christians in the workforce everywhere.
