In the case of Arlene’s florist shop here in our own state, and now the case of a pizzeria in Indiana, business owners are being pilloried and sued because they refuse to provide services for gay weddings.
The Christian admonition is to “Love the sinner, but hate the sin.” In both cases, the shop owners did love the sinner by welcoming those in same-sex relationships into their shops. But they refused to participate in what is a public enshrinement of sin.
Since marriage is a sacred institution, for many Christians gay “marriage” is a sacrilege. How can a nation claim to have religious freedom when it forces people of faith to participate in sacrilege or else lose their businesses?
Religious freedom at the very least must mean that believers can avoid participation in things that are odious to their beliefs. Or will we be forced to "sacrifice to Caesar" like the early Christians?
