Just like the Christians forcing the law in regards to homosexuals and marriage?

Just more fodder to keep the people at odds with each other instead of their real enemy.
Those in control who rip all of us off each day through using government power to enrich themselves continue to divide us by race, by gender, by sexuality, by ancestry, by stands over various issues that none of which ever touches the very power base they use to control us.
Of course forcing people to do things against their beliefs is an incredible overreach of power by government.
They've been doing it for at least 150 years when they enslaved people to join the army to fight to free the slaves.
Sound redundant? That's because it is.

Where's my cell? Lead the way. I refuse to go against everything I believe in because our homosexual president holds a religious gun to my head and tells me "Do it or else." He only made same sex marriage nationally legal...

When did Dear Leader get himself appointed to the Supreme Court to make this decision?

It is forcing a state mandated belief upon people who don't share the same belief as the state.

Can I claim a religious belief that I am allowed to kill my belief defines them??

The Idaho case involves Donald and Evelyn Knapp, both ordained ministers, who run Hitching Post Wedding Chapel.

This case has been discussed before here on ATS..

they run a RECEPTION center etc.

They are NOT compelled to marry the couple...

They are not allowed to deny the ability to rent reception space based on gender, race, religion etc.

They don't have to "Celebrate" the gay wedding..but they can't discriminate in their BUSINESS either.

Nothing contradictory here

We do need a New World Order. That is very clear to me...

This has been dredged up again?

The couple subsequently declared themselves a religious institution, got the proper documentation and any and all "charges" were dropped.

According to the Hitching Post owners' complaint, the Knapps closed their business due to "a constant state of fear that they would be arrested and prosecuted if they declined to perform a same-sex ceremony." However, the article referenced above also reiterated a city spokesman's statement that officials "have never threatened to jail them, or take legal action of any kind" against them.

This was basically a publicity stunt. These "wedding chapel" owners who were renting out their facility along with officiants to any religion, and even non-religious weddings, subsequently changed their policies to achieve "church status."
