I came across this new article.
I would love to hear people’s thoughts on it. I would particularly find a liberal Mormon viewpoint interesting here.
I’ve thought a bit about the difference between refusing services to someone for being [fill in the blank] and refusing to produce something that violates one’s personal convictions. Is there a difference? How much of a difference is there?
A recent court case –intentionally created by a Christian trying to make a point — drove this home. In the case a baker refused to produce an anti-gay marriage cake and the Christian took the baker to court to test the law by (obviously) intentionally creating a reverse court case to the ones where a baker refuses to make a gay marriage cake. (See new article here.)
So how much difference is there here? Is the Utah law truly “groundbreaking” or really just a band-aid on a bigger problem? Discuss.
