Religious freedom or not?
Also, equating this issue with discrimination against Blacks, might appear clever, but it falls on its face, there is no where in the scriptures that condones any such behavior. These Christian run businesses are being purposefully targeted by the Homosexual mafia for law fare, when other businesses are in fact available to offer services to their needs.
RUBIO: CONSTITUTIONALLY ‘VALID’ FOR PEOPLE TO REFUSE SERVICE TO GAY MARRIAGES
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) said that he believes people who don’t want to provide services for same-sex marriages on religious grounds have “a valid constitutional concern,” and that it shouldn’t be legal “to deny someone service at a restaurant or at a hotel because of their sexual orientation” on Monday’s broadcast of “The Five” on the Fox News Channel.
Rubio was initially asked if he would support adding sexual orientation to the Civil Rights Act, to which he responded “I haven’t heard that proposal before, and therefore don’t fully understand how something like that would work.”
Rubio continued, “I don’t think Americans want to discriminate against anyone. I think the fundamental question of some of these laws is should someone be discriminated against because of their religious views? So, no one here is saying it should be legal to deny someone service at a restaurant or at a hotel because of their sexual orientation, I think that’s a consensus view in America. The flip side of it is, though, should a photographer be punished for refusing to do a wedding that their faith teaches them is — not one that is valid in the eyes of God? And so I think these laws are trying to get at that, obviously it’s raised a lot of debate in America about how far these laws [go] and what implications they would have, and it’s a difficult debate to have for a lot of people. But I think the flip side of all of this debate is what about the religious liberties of Americans who do not want to feel compelled by law to provide a catering service or a photography service to a same-sex marriage that their faith teaches is wrong? And — that’s a valid constitutional concern as well.”
