Letter: God’s teachings

Al and Tami Baun’s letter (May 15) needs to be commented on. First of all, let’s be clear: The small bakery did not want to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex marriage, not a “suspected” homosexual as stated. The bakery was not judging or disciplining the couple. But following the Bible, where Roman’s 1:23 states we are not to approve of sinful acts. The couple were simply living their faith and honoring God. Which according to the First Amendment is protected. “Congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion.” A similar case is a Muslim barber who refused to cut a lesbian’s hair, not because she was a lesbian, but because his religion forbids him from cutting women’s hair. He also was sued.

As far as knowing and grasping God’s word, there is nowhere in Leviticus or Corinthians that states a woman can’t wear pants. Deuteronomy 22:5 states a woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor should a man wear women’s clothing, which has nothing to do with clothing but everything to do with sexual roles.

Seems like some like to blur God’s truth and judge Christians.
