One of the homosexual movement’s greatest successes was making it illegal for straight folks, primarily Christians, to adhere to anti-gay convictions.
Now, a federal court is taking away that success by permitting businesses to deny service to gay couples.
From The Daily Caller:
The U.S. Court of Appeals, 5th circuit struck down a district court’s injunction against the law, which now allows business owners to refuse to serve gay, lesbian, or transgender couples on grounds of religious objection and also permits clerks to refuse to issue marriage licenses to LGBT couples.
Foster care and adoption agencies can also choose to reject potential LGBT parents under this law, according to an AP report.
The court’s decision is a big win for the protection of religious liberties, according to Kevin Theriot, attorney with Alliance Defending Freedom, which helped write the bill.
Some argue that turning away homosexuals makes it more difficult to be a positive witness to them.
But most would agree that the law must not force Americans to participate in a movement or lifestyle with which they disagree.
