Sexual Orientation Diversity 2 Abstract The Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, and Transgender (LGBT) community has become a growing part of the workplace. With this growth, Christians have expressed many concerns, and have had to learn how to combat ideas that oppose a biblical worldview. The LGBT community are confronted with discrimination daily in the workplace. Discrimination creates an unforgiving work environment that effects everyone in the workplace, not just the LGBT employees. This paper examines the discrimination that LBGT employees encounter, and how organizations and the law try to counteract discrimination in the workplace. The purpose of this paper is to discuss how Christians respond to LBGT employees, and how Christians confront discrimination without compromising their biblical worldview. Keywords: LGBT, discrimination, Christians, and workplace.
