ORIGINAL POST (copied from the FB page mentioned above):
I don't know why I keep getting promos from this page in my FB feed, but from the posts that keep appearing, it looks like a primarily "anti-LGBT" group. So here's my question for all the people who don't want to offer their business services to some who are not living by your faith: If, for example, you are a baker and do not want to do a wedding cake for a same-sex couple...do you also refuse to do cakes for anyone who is divorced and re-marrying? Our Lord said in Matthew 19:9 (King James Version):
"And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."
So, do you refuse to make a cake for someone remarrying after divorce, so as not to endorse adultery? (Which we all know is one of the Ten Commandments, so if there is anything in the Bible NOT up for debate...I'm pretty sure it's the 10 Cs.) If not, then you are discriminating against a group based on what you personally don't like. Also, if a business owner who wears a hijab declines to offer you service because she sees your lack of modesty as immoral/sinful, then would you see that as discrimination? I think there is a balance to be found on this important issue and I realize some people are honestly trying to find the balance, I'm taking the time to post this because as a Christian myself, I believe these are questions we should all ask ourselves. Do we say we are doing for God, when really we are picking and choosing what best fits our own sense of comfort? Food (or really, Scripture) for thought. God bless, all.
That is all I posted. For myself, I don't think it's my job as a Christian to examine and pass judgement on everyone around me. It is my job to love unconditionally as I believe God loves us.
Thoughtful comments are welcome and appreciated.
