It is entirely a self declared characteristic, therefore no different than membership in a hum while walking club.
    Of course, same sex marriage bans are based on an immutable characteristic. Polygamy bans arent.

    Getting vaccinated, riding an airplane, and using a computer are not unnatural, as they do not contradict any of the natural ends of man. And no, unnatural sexual activity isn't the only thing that should be banned, murder should be as well, as it is even more unnatural than sodomy.

    There have been dozens of cases, but the following is one of the more well known ones

    That 1964 federal law does not define "gender preference" as a protected class. That case specifically addressed racial discrimination and an existing federal law specifically prohibiting it - not some assertion that the 14th amendment applied to commerce.

    :

    You asked about protected classes in general; not gender preference

    Assertions made without an argument (such as the assertion that Christianity is morally on the same level as sodomy) can be dismissed without an argument (as I did).
