At the risk of becoming a Jenny One-Note, I must blog about yet another attempt by the homosexual lobby to intimidate Christian (but not Jewish or Muslim) business owners.
Homosexuals know, and don’t have to believe, that the God of the Bible, the Creator of all things, calls the act of a man lying with a man as he would a woman, and the reverse for women, an abomination. That is what He says, and we believe Him. Murdering, stealing, fornicating, bearing false witness…these and other acts are also sins. God calls us to repent and not to do or give the appearance of doing that which sent Christ to the cross.
The homosexual lobby seems to take delight in offending Christians and using government power to violate our constitutional right to freedom of religion and a personal right to avoid violating our conscience.
A couple of lesbians in Ohio wanted a Christian videographer, Courtney Schmackers, to film their “wedding.” She declined their business, which is her right not only as a business owner but also as a woman of faith.
“I couldn’t believe it,” one of the women said. “It is a small business, and I thought this was a tight-knit community. We wanted to support local commerce and to get that kind of response was astounding.”
Here’s what’s unbelievable: the idea of two women calling themselves married. Here’s something else that’s unbelievable: that they’re upset because a small business owner, Christian or not, does not offer that type of service.
“I made a business decision based on my spiritual beliefs and the biblical definition of marriage because I thought that I had a right to that,” Schmackers wrote on her Facebook page. “Unfortunately, I gave the wrong answer to the wrong person, who decided to make a private issue into a public platform and now I am fully experiencing the consequences. I am sorry you had to be exposed to it, and I’m open to any and all conversation regarding it.”
Stand your ground, Christians.
