If you’re just catching up to national news you are still shocked by the outcome of a case in New Mexico where a court ruled that a Christian photographer must compromise her religious convictions in order to do business. The court said that such a compromise is “the price of citizenship” here in America. Writing about this event, Albert Mohler comments:
“So the price of citizenship is the denial of religious liberty when the Christian convictions of this couple run into a head-on collision with the ‘contrasting values’ of others. This is a ‘compromise’ that requires the Huguenins to give up their convictions or go out of business. What does the ‘compromise’ require of those who push for the normalization of same-sex relationships and the legalization of same-sex marriage? Nothing. Some compromise.”
His statement is poignant in that it points out that Christians are being told to compromise their religious convictions while others that disagree with out beliefs do not have to compromise at all. This is the state of “religious freedom” in America. Click here to read Albert Mohler’s well written article.
