Wedding cakes and photography has been a big focus for much of the same-sex marriage debate in the past several months. But it hasn’t been just wedding services that the same-sex rift has occurred.

There’s no need to get into the details, because the details don’t really matter. The point is: A doctor refused treatment of a baby because the caretakers were gay.

Jesus commands Christians to love the Lord their God with all their heart and with all their soul and with all their mind. And the second?
Love your neighbor as yourself.

This doctor and some Christian business owners don’t appear to be following this very well—even though I support their right to do so.
