We reserve the right to refuse business....Unless you are gay.

Here is an example of how our society is getting fractured in two. There are those who will laugh at the notion that there is persecution of Christians happening in the USA. Of course not to the extent that Christians are persecuted in say, China. Read the following article and then defend, if you dare, how this is not just absolutely ridiculous. People of faith are being asked more and more to keep their faith as a private part of there lives. There is no more room in the public sphere for values. Which is interesting because I don't see people being asked to keep their liberalism private. As I have said before we are moving towards a society where the only things that are eligible for validation or even consideration are those which exist only in the physical realm. So what if a business owner doesn't want to duplicate a lesbian activist's video. That does not constitute hate. If it bothers you then don't patronize his business. It's the same with our Governor Blogobonovich's making pharmacists stock the "morning after pill." There is an attempt to create a society void of possible uncomfortable situations arising where you may be confronted with people or ideas that are based in Christian value. Do you disagree? Please, tell me where I am wrong.

TESTING THE FAITH
Businessman ordered to duplicate lesbian's videos
Virginia Christian investigated after refusing job on biblical grounds

A government commission has ordered a man who runs a video duplicator business to do a job for a lesbian activist after he initially refused because, as a Christian, he did not want to help promote homosexuality.

According to a report by Concerned Women for America, Tim Bono of Bomo Film and Video in Arlington, Va., did not want to violate his biblical values by helping promote two pro-homosexual films lesbian activist Lillian Vincenz wanted duplicated.

Bono Film & Video informs potential customers that the firm does not duplicate material that it deems obscene, could embarrass employees, hurt the company's reputation or that runs counter to the company's Christian and ethical values, Bono told the Family Policy Network, which is working to organize a lawsuit against Arlington County.

The Arlington Human Rights Commission began an investigation into Bono's refusal to do the job and held a public hearing on March 9 to discuss the alleged discrimination. The panel then issued the order for Bono to acquiesce to the lesbian activist's request.

If Bono refuses to do the job, "after a reasonable amount of time, the commission can reassemble and discuss why the remedy was not done," Raul Torres, executive director of the panel, told CWA.

One option would be for the commission to ask the Arlington County Board of Commissioners to file a discrimination complaint in Arlington Circuit Court.

The human rights panel found that Bono did not review the content of the videos, entitled "Gay and Proud" and "Second Largest Minority," and in refusing to take Vincenz's business violated the county's ban on discrimination due to sexual orientation.

Bono's case is reminiscent of that of Scott Brockie, a Canadian Christian printer who was penalized $5,000 in 2001 for refusing to print letterhead for a homosexual advocacy group.

Oh my. No, you hit this on the head BJ. This is indeed persecution, REVERSE discrimination at the least.
Let's say that video reproduction store was owned by Muslims and I wanted to make copies of my "Pictures of Historical Religous Figures" movie that I just made...oh yeah, it happend to include a few pictures of good 'ole Mohammed. Hmmmm, do you think they would have refused to copy it? Of course they would have. Now what if I went upon the same course that the lesbian took. Hmmm, do you think they would have legally forced that video store to reproduce MY video?

Let's go one step further. A a long time ago myself and a friend were approached about writing a jingle for a Riverboat Casino. I turned it down. Mind you not entirely for religous reasons but because I know first-hand a life that has been ruined by gambling. Could the Riverbaot then turn around and threaten to sue me because they were not allowed to be jingled by me? It's so turned around these days.

Very sad indeed. Since when does a person not have a right to refuse business? I see this as even more demoralization of our values and society. Is it any wonder our kids don't have a problem with multiple sex partners, drinking, material item envy?

That's just it cruise, our values are marginalized as unrealistic fairyland magic talk. People want to be "spiritual" but not with all that other stuff. Values to them means existing in a world that is void of ideals. Catering to comfort and non-confrontaion. Nobody gets hurt and nobody expresses their opinion. It is so backwards.

Yes, you are on target --- it is sad that it seems that every viewpoint is acceptable today except to be a Christian. My 80 something father, who is a very mild mannered fellow, becomes quite excited when he shares that the intolerance of Christians is getting quite out of hand. He says that the others have actually become the quite 'intolerant' group.

A skating rink was recently sued for asking a homosexual couple not to hold hands while skating.

No matter that it's a simple safety rule applied to EVERYONE. The article went on to theorize who would get sued when some little girl eventually bashes her head on the ice after being accidently clotheslined by these two. We know it won't be the homosexual rights group that went to bat for the couple.

What of the recent pro-homosexual legislation which has recently passed in the
California Legislature and signed by all hot gay twinks —with more legislation pending.
The threat to erotic gay teen fiction and the continued free operation of the true Church, of course, will be
adversely affected by this. learn more here

The video duplicator, Bono Film and Video, cited the constitutionally guaranteed
right of freedom of religion to defend his decision to refuse business to
lesbian activist, Lillian Vincenz. The proprietor, Tim Bono, argued that he
could not, in conscience, produce material that promoted gay anal sex in a locker room
or any type of homosexual activity.

Bono Film & Video informs every potential customer that it does not duplicate
any free twink video that it may deem obscene, or that may embarrass
employees, tarnish its reputation, or that runs counter to the company’s
Christian and ethical values. This caveat is posted on their website.

“No pornography. No sexually explicit material. No content promoting
gay twink sex galleries violence or hate that runs counter to our Christian
and ethical values. We will not debate the merits of your material if it
crosses our line. If and when material is encountered that contains obscene,
pornographic, "cult-ish," demonic, orsenseless gratuitous violent
scenes, all work will cease and the client will be responsible for
all work that has been performed to-date on the project.”

When Bono declined Vincenz’s business, Vincenz went to the Human Rights
Commission to make a complaint of discrimination against all twink nudists
