Angles, Saxons, Jutes & Danes Arrive Safely in the British Isles
"And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree" (7:1).
And after these things (Emperor Constantine's Christian reign from 324 to 337 A.D.) I saw four angels (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio & Aquarius) standing on the four corners of the (Roman) earth, holding the four winds of the earth (Goths [west], Vandals [south], Huns [east], & Heruli [north] waiting to come against Rome from four sides just like the four winds), that the wind should not blow (winds of war -- Jer. 4:11-13; 49:36; 51:1-2; Dan. 7:2-3; people in turmoil or anarchy -- Isa. 57:20; Dan. 7:2-3) on the earth (sparse population), nor on the sea (multitudes of people, nations -- Rev. 17:15), nor on any tree (human ruler -- Dan. 4:20-22; Ez. 31:3; Judges 9:8-15; Ps. 52:8) (7:1).
Historically, chapter 7 is a continuation of the sixth seal. An interval of PEACE and CALM settled upon the Roman Empire after Constantine's triumph over paganism. Testimonies of contemporary writers bear this out. "Some medals of Constantine are still preserved with the head of this emperor on one side and the inscription: CONSTANTINUS AUG.; and on the reverse: BEATA TRANQUILLITAS, Blessed Tranquility" (Dissertations on the Prophecies by Dr. Thomas Newton, p. 463). Constantine defeated the Goths in 322 A.D. He not only repulsed their invasion of Roman territory, but carried the war into their own country, extracting from them humiliating terms of PEACE, with the result, as Gibbon tells us, that "the threatening tempests of barbarians, which so soon subverted the foundations of Roman greatness, hung SUSPENDED on the frontiers." This tranquility lasted till about 402 A.D.
"And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel" (7:2-4).
And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God (Perseus on east side of Zodiac stepping up with the head of Medusa. The seal of the Holy Spirit [Eph. 4:30] turns hearts from stone to flesh while Medusa's head turns hearts from flesh to stone.): he cried with a loud voice to the four angels ... (7:2), Saying, Hurt not earth, sea, nor trees, till we have (sun-) sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads (baptised them in the English Channel and settled them in the British-Scandinavian "promised land" with the Holy Spirit) ("Beata Tranquillitas" or Blessed Tranquility lasted till 402 A.D.) (7:3)....And there were (sun-) sealed 144,000 (stars) of all the tribes ... of Israel (7:4).
The westward march of Israel from "Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia (Minor), and Bithynia" (1 Pet. 1:1-2; 2:9-10) across the Roman "earth" was possible by holding back the four "WINDS" of WAR (Jer.4:11-13; 49:36; 51:1-2; Dan.7:2-3) so Anglo-Saxons, Jutes and Danes could enter the "Isles afar off" (Jer. 31:1,4, 9-11) -- the British Isles. These islands once formed part of the continent. The shallow English Channel is only 20 to 30 fathoms with submerged forests still standing there. Then they were "CUT OUT ... without hands" (Dan. 2:45) during Noah's Flood. The winds started to blow when Alaric the Goth invaded Italy in 402 A.D. and sacked Rome itself on August 24, 410. Meanwhile, in 409 A.D. an imperial missive from Honorius resigned defense of Britain to the natives. In order to protect Italy, the Roman army evacuated the British Isles completely by 410 A.D. Native kings quickly reasserted their independence. Jutes began to arrive in the British Isles in 449 A.D. Saxons in 477 A.D. Angles 507A.D., Scandinavians 802 A.D., Danes 866 A.D. and Normans in 1066 A.D.
"Ye shall go forth as calves (Eglah) of the stall" (Mal. 4:2). Ephraim is an EGLAH (Jer. 31:18; Hos. 4:16; 5:5-6; 10:11) -- a bullock, heifer or calf. The AEGLI (Herod. 3:92) were sometimes known as AGGAI where the first "G" in Greek has the sound of "N," hence ENGLISH. The Angel of the Lord led the way as they travelled toward the "appointed place" (2 Sam. 7:10) in the British Isles (Isa. 41:1; 49:1). "BRIT-ISH" means "Covenant Man" in Hebrew. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (891 A.D.) says the British came from Armenia -- where Israel was taken captive (2 Ki. 17:6). There is a pass even today known as the "Israel Pass" through the Caucasus Mountains from whence CAUCASIANS get their name. "They have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it" (Micah 2:13). Herodotus says the SCYTHIANS (Scotch) came from "across the Araxes" into CIMMERIA (Her. 4:11) or the Crimea. Hence the Welsh call themselves CYMRY. "I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like corn is sifted in a sieve: yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth" (Amos 9:9). "They shall be wanderers among the nations" (Hos. 9:17). But "they shall remember me in far countries" (Zech. 10:9). "O Israel ... I am with thee to save thee: though I make a full end of all the nations whither I have scattered thee (the Roman Empire in this case) yet will I not make a full end of thee" (Jer. 30:10-11). "They went from one nation to another ... He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes" (Ps. 105:13-14). Second Esdras 13:39-43 describes the ten tribes as escaping to Arsareth. The city of Sereth is in Thrace. Here we find the names BRITO-Lagae, SAXON ("In Isaac shall thy seed be called" -- Gen. 21:12), PICT (Viking), CYMRY, Scythia (SCOT) and Wallachia (WELSH).
At the Synod of Whitby in 664 A.D. Bishop Colmán argued the Celtic Church's Ionan calculation of Easter (Passover) on the following grounds that it was the practice of Columba, founder of their monastic network and a saint of unquestionable holiness, who himself had followed the tradition of St. John the apostle and evangelist.
The sealing is protection from the punishment directed against the Roman Empire for idolatry. We are "SEALED with the HOLY SPIRIT of promise ... and grieve not the HOLY SPIRIT whereby ye are SEALED unto the day of redemption" (Eph. 1:13; 4:30). God has "SEALED us, and given the earnest (downpayment) of the SPIRIT in our hearts" (2 Cor. 1:21-22). Just as in ancient times servants were marked on their foreheads with the NAME of their MASTERS to distinguish who owned them, the Roman Catholic Church was beginning to teach that salvation could be obtained through "the sign of the cross" made at infant baptism and that there was no salvation outside of her membership, that she was the "Israel of God" -- the inheritor of all the covenants and promises of God to racial Israel. "Arise ye, and depart, for this is not your rest, because it is polluted; it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction" (Micah 2:10). This vision was intended to correct that false doctrine and to contrast it with the truth. Revelation 22:4 says, "And they shall see his face; and his NAME shall be in their FOREHEADS." Ezekiel 9:1-6 says, "Set a MARK upon the FOREHEADS of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done." "And these words, which I command thee ... shall be as frontlets between thine eyes" (Deut. 6:4-9). In other words, GOD'S LAW in their MINDS is the SEAL (Gr. "sphragis" -- genuine stamp or signet) in their FOREHEADS.
"Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand" (7:5-8).
Of the tribe of JUDA (Leo -- Gen. 49:9) were sealed 12,000 (the Juthings & Jutes of Jutland began arriving in British Kent & Isle of Wight in 449 A.D. ). Of ... REUBEN (Aquarius -- Gen. 49:4) were sealed 12,000 (during the 4th century Franks who lived near Cologne in Germany along the Rhine were called Ripuarian Franks or Ribuari Franks. "Ben" and "bar" both mean "son" in Hebrew.) Of ... GAD (Sagittarius -- 49:19; Deut. 33:20) were sealed 12,000 (Goths & Gadeni arriving in Sweden & Britain) (7:5). Of ... ASER (Capricorn [Cornucopia] -- Gen. 49:20) were sealed 12,000 (Oseriates in Britain). Of ... NEPHTHALIM (Virgo -- Gen. 49:21) were sealed 12,000 (Nephthalite Huns arrived in Sweden, possibly from China, about 39 A.D.). Of ... MANASSAS (Scorpio [Aquila substituted] -- Gen. 49:23-24) were sealed 12,000 (Usipi in N. France & Angles arrived in British East Anglia, Mercia, Deira, & Bernicia in 507 A.D.) (7:6). Of ... SIMEON (Gemini -- Gen. 49:5) were sealed 12,000 (Semnones & Simeni in Britain). Of ... LEVI (Libra -- Num. 18:26) were sealed 12,000 (Levoni in Jutland). Of ... ISSACHAR (Cancer -- Gen. 49:14) were sealed 12,000 (Scyrri in Finland & Scordisci in Britain) (7:7). Of ... ZABULON (Pisces -- Gen. 49:13; Deut. 33:18) were sealed 12,000 (Sabalingoi arrived in Netherlands). Of ... JOSEPH (Taurus -- Deut. 33:17) were sealed 12,000 (Usipi in N. France & Angles in British East Anglia, Mercia, Deira, & Bernicia in 507 A.D.). Of ... BENJAMIN (Aries -- Philip. 3:5) were sealed 12,000 (Vikings in Norway, Picts in Scotland & Normans in Britain in 1066 A.D.) (7:8). Danites didn't need protection since they lept from the shame ("Bashan") of captivity (Deut. 33:22) by sailing to Greece as "Danai" and then up the Danube, Daneister and Don to Denmark and then to Ireland (Ulster) about 1200 B.C. Even so, a separate branch of Danes arrived in Britain in 866 A.D.
Joseph represents Ephraim (Gen. 48:15-20). But Joseph had a double portion granted to him (Ez. 47:13), so Manasseh is one of the twelve. Why is Dan not present in this numbering? Deborah asked the question, "Why did Dan remain in ships?" (Judges 5:17). Dan was able to escape to the British Isles centuries before the main body of Israelites arrived (2 Sam. 7:10; Isa. 24:15). "Dan shall leap from shame" (Heb. "Bashan") (Deut. 33:22) of captivity. He was absent in the geneology (1 Chr. 5:17). Danites didn't need protection. The tribe of Dan is certainly not excluded from a portion of land nor from a city gate (Ezek.48:1-32). Homer, Aeschylus, Pindar, Euripides, and Strabo mention the "Danai" of Greece who were originally "slaves in Egypt," "the Divine Seed," who had escaped from their brother Egyptus, and were the children of Bela (Bilhah). First Maccabees 12:5-23 and Josephus' Antiquities 12:4:10 mention that the Lacedemonians were "of the stock of Abraham" just like the Jews. Ancient historians trace the Lacedemonians to the Heraclidae or descendants of Hercules who was Samson of the tribe of Dan (Judges 13:2, 24-25). In the Gulf of Corinth in Greece, near the modern Lepanto, was a town called Calydon (Heb. "All of Dan"). In Scotland is Caledonia. The Danube (Dan's Swelling), Daneister (Dan's Hiding Place), Danapris (Dan's Villages) and Don all show his migrations. "The Dannans were a people of great learning, they had overmuch gold and silver ... they left Greece after a battle with the Assyrians, and for fear of falling into the hands of the Assyrians came to Norway and Denmark (Dannemark) and thence passed over to Ireland" (Keating's History of Ireland, p.40). "The colony called Tuatha-de-Dannan conquered the Firbolgs and became Masters of Ireland ... were highly skilled in architecture and other arts from their long residence in Greece and intercourse with the Phoenicians" (Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters, p.121). In the Lough of Belfast we find Donaghadee ("Dan My Witness"). Dannans arrived in Ireland in 1200 B.C. Milesians conquered them in 1000 B.C. Milesians were also called Gadelians from a leader called Gadhol (Heb. "Great") (Keating's History, p.30) (The tribes of Dan and Gad).
Order and meaning of names of sons: "See a son, hear him, join him, praise him, dwell with him. He will reward, at the judgment, in a company of blessed ones, who have wrestled and been added to the son of my right hand."
"After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb" (7:9-10).
After this (Israelite migration westward) I beheld, and, lo, a great, innumerable multitude, of all nations, kindreds, people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes (righteousness of saints -- Rev. 19:8; daybreak), and palms in their hands (Cassiopeia & Virgo hold palm branches & Scorpio is alternately a palm tree) (7:9); And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sits on the throne (Cepheus), and to the Lamb (Aries) (7:10)
Astronomically, Ursa Major is the innumerable multitude while Ursa Minor is the 144,000 "little flock." Both Cassiopeia and Virgo hold palm branches. Historically, Matthew 24 runs parallel to the first six seals in Revelation 6:1-17. Both accounts answer the question, "What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?" (Matt. 24:3). Both have a double application, first to the era from 96 - 395 A.D. ending in the coming of Constantine to rule and his era of tolerance. Second to the era from 1776 A.D. to the end-time and the coming of Jesus the Messiah to rule and his Millenium. Now Revelation 7:14 mentions the "Great Tribulation" which occurred just prior to Constantine -- under Diocletian -- from 303 to 313 A.D. It is the fifth seal. This "Great Tribulation" will occur again in end-time America and may last ten years also. Pagans blamed Christianity for the evils that had befallen the Roman Empire and will blame Christians for the evils that will befall the United States. The "great sound of a trumpet" (Matt. 24:31) is the seventh trumpet of Revelation (under the seventh seal). They "gather together his elect" (24:31) first in the British Isles in 460 A.D. and second in British Columbia (Vancouver Island) and the island of Australia in the end-time. Isaiah 49:6 says Israel would be "a light to the gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth." "In thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed" (Gen. 22:18). God wanted complacent Israel to flee west because this "Great Tribulation" lasted TEN years in the East but lasted only EIGHT years further West, and only TWO years in the extreme West of Europe (France & Britain) because these latter provinces were ruled over by Constantius, who hated the decree. Perhaps the Governor of Washington State and the Premier of Vancouver Island will provide the safest havens in the future. Many persecuted Gentiles, such as Huguenots, fled to the British Isles in obedience to the command "Come out of her (papal Europe), my people" (Rev. 18:4). But "builders" have rejected these three stones. In the case of BRITAIN, the Roman legions left in 410 A.D. In the case of VANCOUVER ISLAND, the Russians only claimed north of 54 degrees 40 minutes. Spanish ceded to America all claims north of 42 degrees and Americans never claimed the island. In the case of AUSTRALIA, Spain, France, Portugal and Holland all saw that Australia and Tasmania were desolate and concluded they were useless. Furthermore, commercial builders have rejected all three stones (Britain, Vancouver Island & Australia) because they are less accessible due to being islands rather than mainland.
John 12:13 says Jesus rode into Jerusalem and they took palms and waved them saying "Hosanna" meaning "Save now." Israel's deliverance from Egypt was celebrated with palms in hand during the Feast of Boothes. This fruit harvest festival typified the spiritual harvest of the whole human race here portrayed. These are non-Israelites by birth who accept Christ as their savior and obey the Bible. Strangers could become Israelites by obeying Bible law (Eph. 2:12; Rom. 11:17). True Christianity spread first to the BRITISH Isles because Jesus said to his disciples, "Go not in the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of ISRAEL" (Matt. 10:5-6).
Tertullian (155-222 A.D.) wrote: "The extremities of Spain, the various parts of Gaul, the regions of BRITAIN which have never been penetrated by Roman arms have received the religion of Christ." (Tertullian Def. Fidei, p.179). Eusebius (260-340 A.D.) wrote: "The Apostles passed beyond the ocean to the Isles called the BRITANNIC Isles." (De Demonstratione Evangelii). Dorotheus Bishop of Tyre wrote in 303 A.D.: "Aristobulus whom Paul saluted, writing to the Romans (Rom. 10:16) was Bishop of BRITAIN." and "Simon Zelotes preached Christ through all Mauretania, and Africa the Less. At length he was crucified at BRITANNIA, slain and buried." (Synopsis De Apostal) Chrysostom (Patriarch of Constantinople) (347-407 A.D.) wrote: "Though thou shouldest go to the ocean to the BRITISH Isles, there thou shouldest hear all men everywhere discoursing matters out of the Scriptures with another voice but not another faith." (Chrysostom Orat O Theos Xristos). Gildas (425-512 A.D.) wrote: "Christ the True Sun, afforded His light, the knowledge of His precepts to our island in the last year as we know of Tiberias Caesar." (37 A.D.) (De Excidio Britanniae, Sect. 8, page 25). William of Malmesbury (1080-1143 A.D.) wrote in his De Antiquitate Glastonie, that Joseph of Arimathea brought the pure Apostolic Gospel to Glastonbury not long after the resurrection of our Lord. Polydore Virgil (1470-1555 A.D.) wrote: "BRITAIN partly through Joseph of Arimathea ... was of all kingdoms the first that received the Gospel." Archbishop Ussher (1581-1656 A.D.) wrote: "the mother church of the BRITISH Isles is the Church in Insula Avalonia called by the Saxons Glaston."
Even the Roman Church Councils of Pisa 1409 A.D., Constance 1417 A.D., Sienna 1424 A.D., and Basle 1434 A.D. all admitted that: "The churches of France and Spain must yield in points of antiquity and precedence to that of BRITAIN, as the latter Church was founded by Joseph of Arimathea immediately after the passion of Christ."
"And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen" (7:11-12).
And all the angels stood round the throne, and about the (24) elders (24 stars in Ursa Minor or Lesser Sheepfold or "little flock") and the four beasts (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio & Aquarius), and fell before the throne on their faces (as they rotated down to the horizon), and worshipped God (7:11), Saying, Amen: Blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honour, power and might, be to our God for ever and ever. Amen (7:12).
"And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them" (7:13-15).
And one of the elders answered, saying to me, What are these arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? (7:13) ... He said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb (Christians martyred by "Christian" Rome) (7:14). Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his (Celestial) temple: and he that sits on the throne shall dwell among them (7:15).
"They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes" (7:16-17).
They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat (since stars only come out at night) (7:16). For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them to living fountains of waters (Aquarius & Eridanus): and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes (glistening stars drop from their eyes as earth rotates) (7:17). Twelve SUNS for twelve SONS. Adding 30 degrees, indicated by the star chart, to 337 A.D., we come to 367 A.D. when Picts, Scots, Saxons, and Franks attacked Roman Britain (Res Gestae 27:8) (four angels in four corners holding four winds of war). Picts attacked from Scotland (north), Irish raided Wales (west), and Saxons and Franks struck southeast Britain from across the channel. This was like the four horns of Capricorn. These raids destabilized Roman Britain and nearly displaced the Romans. Another Roman army rushed to the island. It took three years before the invasion was beaten off. Adding another 30 years, indicated by the starchart, brings us to 397 A.D. when Stilicho repelled a Pictish, Irish and Saxon attack on Britain -- another four angels. The Roman army withdrew from Britain in 406 AD like the flood of Aquarius poured out of a British bucket. In 425, a Roman British leader, Vortigern, invited into Britain Jutes from Denmark, under Hengist, promising Thanet, Kent in return for military aid against northern Picts. This was like inviting a small tail of a big sea monster called Cetus. The Jutes brought Saxons, Angles, some Franks, Frisians and others. What happened in 427A.D.? In 452 Vortigern was defeated by Hengist and these newcomers eventually displaced virtually all the Romanized Britons to Cornwall, Wales, and Cumbria. Some fled to Brittany France. By 600 A.D., most of Britain was occupied by these invading pagan Israelites. Then the Celtic Church with a monastery on Iona converted many to Bible Christianity which celebrated the Saturday Sabbath, sunset to sunset; Passover on the 14th of Nisan; avoided unclean meats; no celibacy; and was Arian (anti-Trinitarian). Adding 360 degrees to 337 A.D., brings us to 697 A.D. when, we believe, these pagan Israelites were Christianized with the "Seal" of the Holy Spirit. Being a (sun-) seal, the Roman Church also converted many because in 590, the pope sent Augustine and 40 monks to England. Once king Ethelbert of Kent was converted, 10,000 Jutes were baptised in one day. The Saxon kingdoms soon followed. But Oswald of Northumbria turned to Celtic monks to Christianize his territory. In 668 A.D., the Pope sent Theodore of Tarsus, a Greek, to be Archbishop of Canterbury and he served for 22 years. Theodore appointed bishops all over England and a great number of churches and cathedrals were built throughout the land. On his death in 690 A.D., Theodore left behind a well-organised Sunday-keeping church in almost all of Britain typified by Sagittarius (returning Messiah). Now 337 A.D. + 360 (30 x 12) = 697 A.D. showing that Britain was fully SUN-sealed by 697 A.D.
Just as groups of 12,000 Israelites in 30-year intervals fled the Roman Empire for the British Isles prior to it breaking in two, so also groups of 12,000 Israelite-Americans in 30-day intervals may flee the United States for Vancouver Island (which has many parallels to the island of Britain: Union Jack; Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum; double-decker buses; Miniature World; Royal Guards; island ferries to Washington's coast) from Washington State (which has many parallels to France: a Normandy Park; Statue of Liberty in W. Seattle; Olympics; Columbia Center [Coulomb Stadium in France]; etc.), prior to the U.S. breaking in two. These 144,000 already obey the Bible, but will be taught more truth and sealed with the Holy Spirit. Perhaps this parallels Noah's ark preserving life since "As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the Son of man" (Luke 17:26-27)." Will a cruise ship (anti-type of Noah's ark) transfer the 144,000 to Whitehorse via Skagway from Victoria? Matthew 24:22 does say, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved." We believe that there will only be 2 years of persecution in Washington State and Vancouver Island, beginning in 2023, but 10 in the eastern U.S., beginning in 2016. "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done, is that which shall be done" (Eccl. 1:9). God says, "I change not" (Mal. 3:6). He is "the same yesterday, today and forever" (Heb. 13:8). Those planning to move there should be aware that British Columbia now bans all words and images "likely to expose a person ... to hatred or contempt" "because of race, religion, age, disability, sex, marital status or sexual orientation." It can be totally FACTUAL yet still be illegal. Of course, this makes preaching the Bible illegal.
