Ashers Bakery Co. in Northern Ireland lost in court this week against a charge of discrimination. Ashers Bakery would not make a cake supporting ‘Gay Marriage’. The Republic of Ireland has just become the first nation to vote ‘Yes’ on same-sex marriage. What does this mean for ‘freedom of speech’ and ‘religious liberty’? What does the Bible say on these and other topics?
“The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves. Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.”
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
