    AFA: Shops who display ‘We Don’t Discriminate’ stickers are bullying Christians[W:54]

    Yep, NOT discriminating is now "bullying."

    I'm sure that by "We don't discriminate," they really mean "Let's see your membership card for the Humanists."

    From the article:

    AFA spokesman Buddy Smith said: “If you do that, you are agreeing with these businesses that Christians no longer have the freedom to live out the dictates of their Christian faith and conscience.
    How does a business owners decision to sell to ANYONE equate to Christians no longer having the freedom to live out their faith?

    What happens to businesses who laugh at the whole concept of discriminating, but don't care to put up a sign? Could they be targeted?

    What if the owners were Christians, but would rather stay out of the whole deal and not post a sign, would they be identified for discrimination?

    Do we really need to post symbols on front doors to notify the enforcers of our affiliations and beliefs?

    Christians can be as misguided as anyone else, and in this case it is very misguided.

    I wonder what the AFA would say about my Church, Baptist, who has a lesbian child and youth minister?

    I am no theologian, but Jesus cultivated the sick, the downtrodden, the outcasts of society and gathered them around him. Some teachings refer to the "Raggamuffin Gospels; anyone who thinks Jesus would shun a homosexual is savagely mistaken, he chose to gather with prostitutes, sent out a woman who had had "five husbands" and made fishers and tax collectors his disciples.

    This obsession with the morality of others has always rung hollow to me...in my experience the more people are fighting these moral battles, the more it seems they have given up their own moral fight; have lost sight of the truly moral crime of passing judgement on others.....

    "...forgive us out trespasses AS we forgive those who have trespassed against us...." are not just words recited to make us feel we have met our obligation to God, but God's reminder that his judgement is the only one that counts, that his forgiveness for our sins is dependent on our treatment of others.

    How many of these AFA's have had extra-marital affairs, a homosexual encounter, or masturbates?

    Since there isn't a requirement to do this, what business is it of yours what an owner decides to put up in HIS business?

    Is it any different than shops that put Christian symbols in their windows?

    Essentially what it comes down to is Christians that agree with the AFA on this are afraid of taking responsibility for their discrimination against homosexuals.

    They want the right to discriminate, but they want to be free of consequences of their discrimination.

    Interesting answer. Not sure why you wasted everyone's time with it.

    I don't see how not discriminating = targeting.
