Why I Oppose Religious Discrimination Bills

The current state legislative session ends in a few days. This session has seen a number of bills saying Christians should not be compelled to serve people they don't like or agree with such as immigrants, gays, Muslims, and the like. I ask my legislators not to support such bills. The God of Lutheranism calls us to love our neighbor, not to look for legislative rationales not to serve those we do not like.

In too many cases, Christians are becoming known more for who they hate instead of who they love. This negative image of Christianity is one of the major reasons younger generations are showing less and less interest in the church and are having nothing to do with the church.
