Is it hypocritical for a Christian business owner to deny gay people, but not adulterers, divorcees and non-Christians?Posted by: briantheliberal
Apparently a lot of conservatives believe "religious freedom" is a valid excuse to deny products and services to gay citizens (who's tax money helps to build their businesses), yet the same people refusing gays wouldn't dare refuse anyone else who violates their religious beliefs. Is this biased discrimination?
Yes, it is hypocritical.
No, it's not hypocritical.
And illegal constitutionally.
Hypocritical and discriminating, yes. I don't know about unconstitutional though, since I'm not American.
All are equally sinful by Christian standards.
They think being gay is a choice and would probably be fine with it if the gays would hide their identity and say it's a sin and they need to stop doing it. Whether someone's behaviour is actually harmful does not really seem to matter to them, it's all about attitude.
It is kinda hippocritical, but they should have a right to deny all those people and more.
Illegal, unjust, and utterly hypocritical
They are ignoring the rest of their precious book's rules while they are so focused on that one because they think it's icky or something, I don't know. But is it pretty hypocritical.
Wow. If someone walks into a cake shop with the intention of using said cake at a gay wedding, the person can straight out refuse? How stupid is that? The bible said you should STONE the gays, not refuse to give them cake. Religion should either be followed to the book or not followed at all, which is why religion shouldn't exist. It isn't freedom of religion, it's discrimination, the matter should be taken to court and the employee either fired or obliged to give an apology.
Absolutely. It's discrimination based on religious belief. Christians who do these things clearly miss the New Testament's message of love your neighbor.
It's not about the person. It's about the intention. If a Gay person walked into a cake shop and asked for a cake: Sure thing. If a Gay person walking into a cake shop and asked for a cake intended to be used at a gay wedding: Sorry. It's not discrimination, it's freedom of religion.
An adulterous person isn't going to go Into a bakery and ask them to bake a cheating cake, same with divorced people.
