Could This Bible Story Allow Conservatives to Serve Same-Sex Couples?

April 16, 2015

Writing on the Huffington Post Religion blog, author John Backman presents a Bible story that is very relevant to the current debate about whether the conservative Christians who oppose LGBTQ equality should provide services for same-sex weddings.  Backman writes:

“After all the news out of Indiana and Arkansas recently, you may still wonder how to remain faithful to God (as you understand God’s will) and obey the government’s anti-discrimination laws. Maybe you see this as a moment for taking a stand, putting a stake in the ground, engaging in civil disobedience.

“There might be a better way. It comes from a Bible story you don’t hear in the debates over same-sex marriage. See if it works for you.”

Can you guess which story?  Read the article on Huffington Post Religion.
