Letter: The right to refuse

March 16, 2014 

Concerning the Add the Words dogma; if I own a bakery and do not want to bake a cake for a homosexual couple, that is my right. By turning them away I am not taking away their "right" to purchase a wedding cake. I and thousands of others look at homosexuality as a perverted behavior, yes, behavior, not a condition from birth. No, Lady Gaga, you're dead wrong; homosexuals not only aren't born that way, but cannot be born that way. If they were born homosexual, then God is not God, and we as a people are coasting along orbiting the sun at the speed of 66,000 miles per hour with no one in control. Yeah, scary. Not the case, thank God.

Here is the reason why homosexuals are the way they are: mankind's belief system. Romans 1:24,26: Wherefore God gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their bodies between themselves. For this cause, God gave them up unto vile affections: for even the women did change the natural use into that which is against nature, and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another.
