Religious Freedom or License to Discriminate?

Should it be legal for a business to refuse service to gays and lesbians because of religious beliefs?

An amendment passed by the Arizona state legislature appears to say yes, and that's generated huge controversy. Supporters say the law protects religious freedom. Those against it say it is a license to discriminate.

Kellie Fiedorek, an attorney for the Alliance Defending Freedom, which was involved in drafting the amendment, spoke out on 'New Day.'

    6 “‘Non vi dovete avvicinare, nessun uomo di voi, ad alcun suo stretto parente carnale per scoprirne la nudità.+ Io sono Geova.7 Non devi scoprire la nudità* di tuo padre+ e la nudità di tua madre. È tua madre. Non devi scoprire la sua nudità. (Levitico 18:6,7)

    22 “‘E non devi giacere con un maschio+ come giaci con una donna.+ È cosa detestabile.(Levitico 18:22)
    (Romani 1: 24-27)

    Tanti diranno senz'altro che il consiglio citato sopra e antiquato e senza valore come Dio, Religione, e qualsiasi guida morale!

    6 “‘No man among you should approach any of his close relatives to have sexual relations.+ I am Jehovah.7 You must not have sexual relations with your father, and you must not have sexual relations with your mother. She is your mother, and you must not have sexual relations with her.
    (Leviticus 18:6,7)

    22 “‘You must not lie down with a male in the same way that you lie down with a woman.+ It is a detestable act.(Leviticus 18:22)
    Romans 1:

    No doubt many will say the above counsel is old fashioned and out dated like the idea of religion, God and any moral code whatsoever!
    (Romans 1: 24-27)
