1 Group One, Forum Seven Douglas Barnes Liberty University Laws and Scripture Forbid Employment Discrimination This paper reviews laws and scripture that prohibit discriminatory employment practices. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 forbids hiring based on race, color, religion, creed, or national origin (Satterlee, 2009). Scripture also prohibits discrimination. James 2:1 explains: “my brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don't show favoritism” (New International Version). James 2:9 adds, “if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.” Besides being illegal, discriminatory employment can reduce an organization’s effectiveness. Roper (1952) asserts that discriminatory practices “accelerate employee disunity, which in turn seriously jeopardize morale” (p. 588). Bowes (2007) notes that, “diversity can encourage a more balanced view of problems and an increased richness of decision making through consideration of different viewpoints and perspectives” (p. 16).
