I have no problem with refusing people based upon their choice to live** sinful lives**. But you do have to draw a line somewhere, since at a point, you'd end up not serving anyone at all lol. I assume a business owner would draw that line where they and their pocketbook saw fit.
I would also have no problem whatsoever hailing another cab if the driver was Muslim and I had alcohol with me. I think a big part of people's problem with the recent cases of same-sex couple suing cake makers and the like is that the government is forcing people to serve other people according to a false belief that there is absolute proof that sexual orientation is on the same level as race and gender.
How about this example: as a wedding photographer, could you take as a client a man who cheated on his wife and then abandoned his wife and family? How could you stand as a witness to such a marriage? Would you be a photographer for the marriage of some sort of s and m (am I saying that right?) couple in which one was the slave and one was the master? With them dressed in whatever they dress in? If you can't be forced to do that, then you can't be forced to take a client who chooses to live any sort of sexually disordered life period.
A hetero couple comes into your establishment...they are living together, leading sinful lives.....do you serve them? If a man comes into your establishment to have dinner, buy clothes, a hammer or whatever, and he "seems" effeminate to "YOU", do you serve him? A woman comes into your establishment, with short hair, wearing a baseball shirt, cap and shorts, she is obviously a softball player, very athletic,....you think she is "butch", do you serve her?
Just how many crystal balls are looked into in the name of steadfastness to one's faith?:shrug:
