I have not heard of that story but it does not surprise me.

Have you heard of these:
A former Army Sergeant, James Prater is selling a home and puts up a sign which include "terms no foreigners". The Michigan Department of Civil Rights said it violates state and federal laws.
Here is a link: https://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story/opinion/columnists/judy-putnam/2017/08/04/fair-housing-iraq-war-veteran-mason/539322001/

And in Atlanta a gym owner puts up a sign saying "No f**king cops". The gym owner banned police and military members because they make "minorities" feel uncomfortable. (Nevermind their sacrifice is what keeps his sorry ass safe!) And there is no Department of Civil Rights calling violation!

The "Sweet Cakes by Melissa" case is out of Oregon.
I think there were more than one Muslim truck driver involved with second case. I don't know if they were each awarded that much or if that was the total split between the two.

As for the gym owner and the guy selling his house, I don't think anyone should be forced to enter into a "contract" with anyone else. As in, I give you money and you preform a service or sell me something. That is a business contract.

I also believe that citizens should have the right to be the biggest scumbags they want to be and refuse to enter into contracts for whatever reason, even if the reason is bigoted. That's freedom of association. Freedom of speech and expression says that they can advertise their "scumbagness" with signs that say, "I don't want to serve X people for whatever reason." The only consequences should come from the free market, where people will avoiding doing business with scumbags like that. They should be free from criminal, governmental, and civil liability due to their scumbag ways. That is the state/feds should not interfere with their business nor should other citizens be able to sue them for refusing to freely enter into a contract with them (even if their reasons are that they are bigoted scumbags.) I see the hypocrisy in the two stories you presented. I think both people are scumbags but shouldn't have to serve police or sell their property to whomever. I wouldn't want to sell my property to certain people, but I wouldn't advertise it. I would interview the prospective buyers and deny the ones who didn't meet my qualifications. Putting up that sign was stupid IMO and he should have known better.

The thing about the Muslims in my meme is they had already freely entered into a contract with their employer. They knew what would be expected of them and entered into the contract/job expecting special rights. They should have "conscientiously" avoided that job and found other employment.

You are right. And now that you mention it, it was rather pointless to put up the sign refusing foreigners. Like you said, he could have just refused the ones he didn't want buying it without "advertising it". Unless he was hoping to get others to do like him. He did say that his idea of foreigners is probably different than what others may think. After serving two tours in the Army, I would imagine he has quite another version of "foreigners" than what most people may think. Personally I thought he was probably referring to muslims from places like where he was deployed. And yes, those places produce a lot of people who would love to see America burn. Why some Americans want those guys to move in is beyond my comprehension. Call me bigoted. Call me an islamophobe. Call me whatever name below the sun one can think. Just don't call me someone who doesn't care about my country.

As you said, people should have the right to do what they want in those instances. It is just so ludicrous that people call one a violation and not the other. The story with the muslims, did that happen in the US? It sounds like some of the crazy stuff I have been reading about in Europe, mainly Germany. The amount of pull those refugees have over the German citizen is ridiculous.

Take offense if you will.
I know that God raises up kings and sets down kings. I know that the heart of the king is in the hand of LORD and He turns it wherever He wills.
I believe in giving the "benefit of the doubt" to other people, especially other Christians. However, to me Trump's profession of faith is not enough for me to believe he is a Christian. The Scriptures are clear that if a person's works don't match their "profession of faith" then they have "dead faith" not saving faith (James 2:19-26.)
Those are the works in their personal life. Trump "praying" with ministers and Christians in the White House or speaking to the March For Life "could be" political maneuvers. Unless he has personally expressed his need for Christ as Savior, which would change his behavior, I can't believe he is a Christian.

I agree with you meme in so much that the Lord would be guiding the hand of any ruler. Trump is not special or unique in that regard. Even all of the evil that Obama did, he did it because God allowed it to happen.

His vow to prioritize Christian refugees, bring back merry Christmas, member of the Presbyterian church, and the fact that he's saving the only country founded on God's name says alot.

But you'll only believe he is a Christian if he shares his personal relationship with Christ out loud specifically, using his words not his actions. Gotcha.

Ephesians 4:29 and 5:4 say that is not the way Christians should communicate. What someone says tells a lot about their character and to me, the way the person says it tells me even more.

I'm hoping it got noticed by people who think that the above situation is what actually happened. It isn't. Employees were being told by their employers to do something that violated their religion. In the other situation, owners open to the general public without signs stating they had the right to refuse service got busted when they refused service (on any grounds). I hate that it happened, and as a member of the deacon board at my church, I've counseled my pastor that if someone ever tries to trap him into doing a same-sex marriage, he should just always say that it doesn't work with his schedule. No matter when, there's always a "scheduling conflict." It prevents them from employing any of the nonsense (but legal nonsense nonetheless) that got employed against the bakers. However, these are really Apples and Oranges situations, and I strongly hope that people will see the truth of that matter.
reply
1 up, 1 reply
First of all, you say that you, a deacon in the local church, have advised your pastor to LIE in order to "avoid legal nonsense," so you feel it is necessary for your pastor to sin in order to not partake in someone else's sin? I really hope that your pastor did not consent to that. You need to repent of that ungodly counsel. I wouldn't be comfortable with you being my deacon specifically nor being on the deacon board at all because of that.
My pastor only marries couples who do marriage counseling with him and adhere to our church's statement of faith. They don't have to be members of our church, they just have to hold to the same stances on marriage and morality. That is the best policy because it is not a SIN and you can't be "trapped."

Secondly, the local church is not providing services to the general public. A person can not walk in off the street and join my church. They have to meet with our pastor, affirm our doctrinal statement, and sign a copy of our church constitution that says if they ever deviate from the MORAL principles of the doctrinal statement they will be disciplined out of the church if necessary. Strictly as a means of protection from litigation.
I'll address what you said about the Christian bakers and the Muslim truck drivers after to respond to this, if you feel inclined to do so.
reply
0 ups
Nope, it's not a lie to say that you've decided that doing something else at the time is more important (i.e. - scheduling personal time).
Legal advice we've received indicates that although our Constitution's statement of faith may provide some protection, it's no guarantee unless both individuals are actual members. In fact, recent Non-Discrimination city ordinances (AKA-bathroom bills) that have popped up around the country and in our own city seem to exclude religious organizations from any repercussions of denying access to private areas to people who identify as another gender, but careful reading of these ordinances reveal that it only applies to members of that denomination. So, as mentioned earlier, there may be some protection, but there is no guarantee.

Currently, our Constitution allows for our building to be rented for the use of certain specified events, like weddings, but it doesn't offer any resistance beyond protection of the physical property, illegal activities, alcohol on the premesis, etc. Those who created the document in 1983 weren't considering the possibilities of where we find ourselves now. So, essentially, we're a little vulnerable until we finish creating and adopting the new Constitution (which could easily take another year or two).

Islam is an ideology not a type of person. You and I both can be friendly and accepting of Muslim people without accepting their ideology that teaches hate and violence.

That meme is ironic because the sign they are carrying says "LGBT against Islamophobia" and those people have every right to have a fear of an ideology that would kill them because of their sexuality. They and you both seem to have trouble distinguishing between the people and the ideology.

Those homosexual men being thrown off of that building have been sentenced by the state to be executed. Those men throwing them off the building aren't hiding their faces because they are "terrorists" rather they are state sponsored executioners.

Is it OK to have fear or even hate for a government that murders people for their sexual orientation, what about the ideology that controls that government? The people carrying that sign and you don't seem to understand that there is a difference between individual Muslims and Islamic ideology and countries controlled by that ideology. You are the one accusing me of the thing that you don't understand.
My friend, you are wrong.

What point of your's is she proving?

"I just don't understand why liberals say we Christians are "shoving our religion down their throats" for opposing gay marriage, while saying Islam is a peaceful religion despite all the terrorism. Guess they lack logic."

You should watch JaclynGlenn to get the liberal insight on Islam. Secondly, when Christian lawmakers say they oppose gay marriage, they wave the Bible around in the air (totally not trying to appeal blind voters at all) and site it (without context), thus awakening conservative voters' normie minds, as well as appeasing radical lobbyists. Then they get around to putting unconstitutional laws out against gays, calling it "religious freedom", and start victim-blaming the LGBT by saying that they're shoving their gayness down Christians' throats.

Romans 14:21-23
It always strikes me as odd when someone tells me what the bible teaches or does or doesn't prohibit and what they say is the exact opposite of what the bible actually says.
Christianity is more comprehensive than a list of dos and don'ts. Faithful, bible believing Christians have to take into account their own individual conscience and the consciences of other Christians. To take part in anything that I can't do in full faith and assurance with a clear conscience would be sin on my part, whether it violates my conscience or would be an offense to other believers who know me.

Take drinking alcohol for example. There is no strict prohibition against drinking, but there is a prohibition against getting drunk Ephesians 5:18. Since I used to abuse alcohol I couldn't touch a drop with a clear conscience, doing so would be a sin for me. While other Christians can drink (without getting drunk) and it not be a sin.

While there is not a blanket prohibition against participating in a same sex ceremony (baking the cake, catering, photographing, floral arrangements) and some Christians could do it with clear consciences, I and many other Christians would be sinning by doing so.
My question is, why would people and the federal or state governments want to use government force to coerce me and other Christians into sinning when they could find non-believers and some other Christians who would happily take their money and enter into contracts with them and preform services for them?
Is it out of malice, not understanding what the bible actually teaches, or both? Or do people just not care what we believe and want to force us to violate our faith and consciences so those people can "feel better about themselves"?

I understand the top part of the meme comment, but what does the bottom part mean?

My point was that there is no specific verse in the Bible that prohibits participating in a same sex wedding or ceremony, and you agreed that that was true. I do recognize that other factors, such as conscience or an individual's interpretation of particular verses, can and do factor into their decision.

People who want to coerce Christians to do business with gay customers, in my opinion, do so more from a sense of fairness and equality than an explicit hatred for, or desire to attack, your religious beliefs.

"Whatsoever is not from faith is sin..." means I can't do anything that I don't have a clear conscience about. Whether or not there is a "specific verse in the bible that prohibits" doing it. Like I wouldn't work in an establishment that even sales alcohol because of my conscience. I couldn't work there "in good faith."

If those folks trying to coerce Christians believe so much in "fairness and equality" why don't they go into Muslin and hallel bakeries and demand same sex wedding cakes? Have you seen the video by Steven Crowder about that? Memedave shared the link in a comment right above this one.

"But he who doubts is condemned if he eats..."
Paul was teaching about "Christian liberty" and how it relates to our interactions with "weaker brethren" which means their consciences our overly sensitive in some areas. The topic of discussion is "eating meat that was offered to idols." Some of those believers at the time were saved/converted out of pagan cultures that sacrificed animals to idols, the meat was sold in the market places, and those believers wanted to know if they had "liberty" to eat that meat even though it has been offered to an idol.
Paul taught that if the individual's conscience was clear they could eat the meat. However, it was better NOT to eat the meat if they were with a "weaker brother" whose conscience was affected by the fact that the meat has been offered to an idol.
The Christian who eats the meat without a clear conscience is "condemning himself" because he is sinning against his own conscience. The Christian who is cause his "weaker brother" to stumble is also "condemning himself" because he is causing someone else to sin against their conscience.
That is where we get the principle "whatever is not from faith is sin," so if I participate in something without a clear conscience in complete faith I am sinning against my own conscience and God.
Is that better? I hope.

He's basically combining a couple of responses that were already said about the case.

1) This couple is so keen on getting these Christian bakers to make the cake when probably 10 other bakers around the area would be willing to do so.

2) Christians are more than welcome to support homosexuality, but only to a certain extent. They can be friends with them, help them, whatever. However, it would be against their religion to go to a homosexual person's wedding.

Again, all people's consciences are different, so there probably are Christians out there who will go to a homosexual wedding. There are also probably some Christians who hate people purely for the fact that they are gay and nothing else. The genuine "homophobes", if you will. Hope this clarified James' meme for you

"I've heard Christians support the murder of gay people; one of them said this to me directly in a conversation."

He is wrong. And his attitude towards gays is not Christ like.

Quote this verse back to him: Matthew 5:44 "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you"
I do not know as much as James here, but I know a little. If Jesus says to love your enemies who then is left for you to hate? You know from before that I have a problem living up to that. But then, I am not the one calling myself a Christian. My guess is that this guy you speak of has to verbally announce that he is a "Christian". I mean you probably can't tell he is one from his actions, can you? (A public display of praying is not enough to convince me, it will be his actions towards other people.) If this guy is boasting about being a Christian you should definitely challenge him with that verse and the question I offered.

And this one if you want-
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
Is this guy blameless? Has he committed no sin? There are other sins, lots of them, and being gay is not the only one. There is not anything in the New Testament that condones the hatred of gays. I dislike hypocrites. And these so called "Christians" are no exception.

Back to the "Christians" refusing gays service because they are gay. I do believe that they should have the right to deny service if they choose. However, if they are going to represent Christ, then I hope they would go all the way. I am curious if they would deny service to someone who has remarried multiple times? Would they refuse service to a couple living together while not married. Would they refuse service to drunkards and people who talk bad? The list can go on and on. If one is going to proclaim to be a Christian, then they better be walking that narrow road. If not they would surely be a hypocrite and be a stumbling block to others. .... The actions of Christians like him probably does not make you want to think about being one, right?

Another one for this guy: Proverbs 10:18 "He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool."

Actually, as long as the business is not government owned in any way, they have the right to refuse service for varying reasons. One of these reasons would be due to religious reasons.

And you're missing the point of the meme. If it's okay to force one religious business or individual to provide service to someone, then it needs to be the same for other religious businesses or individuals. You can't have it both ways, depending on who you're dealing with.

You don't have to answer the questions, I just want you to think if you are able to do so.

Like spurs said, it is perfectly legal for privately owned business to pick and choose who they sell to. I'm fine with that, but the fact that you only call the Christian bakers bigots, assholes, and sexist (seriously? Where the hell did sexist come from) is uncalled for.

I think you are confused as to what Islam tells its adherent so do to homosexuals. It doesn't involve "putting them in the closet."
