Not Christ-like to discriminate

Jack Phillips is appealing a civil rights ruling against him for refusing to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, based on his religious beliefs. A letter writer says those beliefs should not be used to excuse discrimination.

Religious refusal is half-baked

Re “Can’t have your cake, gays are told, and a rights battle rises” (Page A6, Dec. 16): I do not understand how people can use their religious beliefs to discriminate, such as those who refuse services to same-sex couples. I was taught that to be Christian is to be Christ-like. I was taught we were all made in the image of God, we are all children of God and God loves all his children.

So how can so-called Christians use their religious beliefs as a basis for discrimination against God’s children?
