Court Rules Christians Must Surrender Their Faith

It didn't happen in Europe, but here in the United States and the court ruled that surrendering your Christian beliefs "is the price of citizenship."

(Red State) The case centered around Elaine Huguenin, a Christian in New Mexico who owned a photography business. She was asked to provide services to a gay commitment ceremony between two lesbians, Vanessa Willock and her partner. Ms. Huguenin and her husband declined to provide their services because they are Christians and the orthodox tenets of their faith tell them that marriage is between a man and a woman. See e.g. Matthew 19.

Vanessa Willock, in an act of spite and retribution, decided to file a discrimination claim and punish Mrs. Huguenin for adhering to her religious beliefs. In a very profound decision, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled that Christians, Muslims, Orthodox Jews, and others must surrender the faithful practice of their religion in the name of citizenship.

In fact, Justice Richard Bosson in a concurring opinion, wrote: "At its heart, this case teaches that at some point in our lives all of us must compromise, if only a little, to accommodate the contrasting values of others…. That compromise is part of the glue that holds us together as a nation, the tolerance that lubricates the varied moving parts of us as a people…. In short, I would say to the Huguenins, with the utmost respect: it is the price of citizenship."

  1. They have to refuse and go against the State because their loyalty is first to God who hates the practice of homosexuality and all sin. As for that judge, there is a verse in the Bible that says that if someone causes one of my little ones to sin, it would be best if a millstone were put around his neck and he dropped into the midst of the sea. Therefore if the judge causes the couple to sin, if she repents, that she will have guilt all her life and if she does not, she will wind up in hell. And that will be a lonely place, she will be unable to see others tormented as herself.

  2. What about businesses that have signs up that say we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Does this mean now that if you own your business you have no say about whom you serve. This is wrong on many levels. I would appeal

  3. So according to this judge Christians have to compromise their principles as a price for citizenship. Then Hobby Lobby can be forced to stay opened on Sundays, Jews and Seventh-Day-Adventist can be forced to do business on Saturday.
    Wonder if the Photography business had been owned a Moslem would the decision been the same?

  4. This is where separation of church and state should happen. The judge is in the wrong and the abnormal people whining to this judge are a stain on the U.S.A..

  5. The price of citizenship is not the denial of your own beliefs. Justice Richard Bosson is an obviously liberally activist judge signing on to the idiot world of political correctness. If a gay couple are refused a marriage ceremony based on the beliefs of the ceremonial minister, then they have an option, go elsewhere until they find someone compatible to their need. This is just a contemptible way of a a couple trying to make a fast buck through the court system probably to help pay for the wedding. Idiot liberal judges abound throughout the judicial system, so it's not hard to cash in on the "gay" lifestyle at the expense of heterosexuals with God fearing Christian beliefs. We currently live in a nation of morons so this is not a surprising story given who the morons put in the highest office of the land, El Presidente Obuttbrain.

    1. Absolutely. Citizenship has absolutely nothing to do with faith. This judge is a progressive twit. Nothing in our Constitution states that a person must denounce his faith before becoming a citizen. This should be appealed to the SCOTUS, but knowing this bunch of crazies, they will probably default to the lower twit.

  6. I thought it was religious freedom that prompted our forefathers to come and settle in America. Now we are again being punished because of our beliefs?? Politiccal correctness (along with some other things - like the demise of the family, lack of responsibility, "let's make everyone winners", etc.) are heading America down the path of destruction!!

  7. The Court can go to Hell. I will NEVER surrender my belief in God! Nor will I ever stop praying to him. This regime is the anti-christ and anyone who gives into them will not see Heaven. You either stand firm for God or you do not. Your Choice. Never will I give in to these despots! Where are those who are supposed to be protecting the Constituion, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. I hope they all end up in Prison.

  8. I think that Justice Richard Bosson, is completely wrong in the way he wrote his decision. This has NOTHING to do with giving up your religion for "the price of your citizenship!" It may have something with putting your religious or personal feelings aside being the price of doing commercial business, but not your citizenship.

  9. So, Justice Richard Bosson in a concurring opinion, wrote: "At its heart, this case teaches that at some point in our lives all of us must compromise, if only a little, to accommodate the contrasting values of others…. That compromise is part of the glue that holds us together as a nation, the tolerance that lubricates the varied moving parts of us as a people…. In short, I would say to the Huguenins, with the utmost respect: it is the price of citizenship." That means that the lesbian couple need to "accomodate the contrasting values of others" too. Right? Hello?

  10. This case merely exposes the constitutional crisis created when we make laws to accomodate amoral behavior.
    There needs to be consequence for unlawful decisions like this one in which the progressive court is forcing us to compromise principals for an amoral minority.

  11. I'd lay bets that the counrt wouldn't dare tell Muslims that they have to surrender their beliefs as a price of living in the United States. After all, the Muslims are only loyal to the Koran and it's crezy beliefs about killing non-believers.

  12. HA! We ALL must compromise??? The left-wing gays are not compromising - not at all. This is where the line is drawn - and this judge needs to be educated on the Constitution NOW!

  13. I say We, The People should expel gays/c-suckers and the like because their minds dwell on these issues--ending up doing heinous acts in/out of the public eye.
    If they get caught, our laws will demand that they serve substantial time in prison, to segregate them from stalking normal humans who do not practice faggotry.

  15. Ok, for one, homophobic means to be afraid of homosexuals, we are not afraid of them, we think their lifestyle is immoral. And suing somebody because they have a different set of standards that prevents them from serving someone is just as bad if not worse than anything a christian/muslim/jew could do. Homosexuals are trying to throw Christians into traffic, per se, and run them out of business, house and home because we disagree with them. That's just as bigoted as anything we could do.

  16. The judge is the un glued one. I think that when he was sworn in as a "judge", he swore upon a bible, to uphold the laws of the nation. So here he is, taking away a person rights, just to appease a couple of queers. Yes I used the Q word. That shows you how old I am. In my day, that is what they were called and they accepted it. It looks like citizenship is going down the drain. You don't have to be a citizen any more to be a president.

  17. ALL WE NEED TO DO IS TO REMOVE THIS "JUDGES" AND RETURN TO A NATION WHICH RESPECTS TRUE CITIZENSHIP, BY VIRTUE OF RESPECTING ONE'S DEEPLY HELD RELIGIOUS BELIEFS!!! ANY JUDGE WHO REJECTS THAT SHOULD BE REJECTED AND EJECTED FROM THE BENCH!!! PERIOD!!!

  18. THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
    The Ten Commandments were given by God to the nation of Israel as a covenant. The Ten commandments were not given to those living under the New Covenant. Nine of the Ten Commandments have been restated under the New Covenant. The one commandment that has not been restated under the New Covenant is remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
    New Testament Christians worship on the Lord's Day, "Sunday."

    TEN COMMANDMENTS GIVEN TO ISRAEL

    Exodus 34:27-28 The the Lord said to Moses, "Write these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel." 28 So he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he did not eat bread or drink water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the Ten Commandments.

    The covenant was made with Israel. It was not made with those living under the New Testament (The New Covenant).

    NINE OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE RESTATED UNDER IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

    Ten Commandments with Israel. (Exodus 20:1-17)
    1. "You shall have no other Gods before Me.

    Restated in the New Testament. Matthew 4:10

    2. "You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.

    Restated in the New Testament. 1 John 5:21, Revelation 21:8

    3. "You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.

    Restated in the New Testament. Matthew 6:6, Acts 19:13-16, Matthew 5:33-37, James 5:12, Matthew 7:21-23, Mark 7:7

    4. "Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Exodus 20:8-11....9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath of the Lord your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you.....

    Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy has not been restated in the New Testament.

    5. "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

    Restated in the New Testament. Ephesians 6:1-3

    6. "You shall not murder.

    Restated in the New Testament. 1 John 3:15

    7. "You shall not commit adultery.

    Restated in the New Testament. 1 Corinthians 6:9

    8. "You shall not steal.

    Restated in the New testament. Ephesians 4:28,

    9. "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

    Restated in the New Testament. Luke 3:14, Matthew 15:19

    10. "You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall shall not covet your neighbor's wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or any thing that belongs to your neighbor.

    Restated in the New Testament. Ephesians 5:5

    Christians under the New Covenant did not and do not worship on the Sabbath nor did they, nor do they keep it holy. Christians worshiped and worship on Sunday, the Lord's Day, the first day of the week.

    Acts 20:7 On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to leave the next day, and prolonged his message until midnight.

    1 Corinthians 16:1-2 Now concerning the collection for the saints, I directed the churches of Galatia, so do you also. 2 On the first day of every week each one of you is to put aside and save, as he may prosper, so that no collections be made when I come.

    Sunday is not the Sabbath, it is the Lord's Day.

    The Sabbath that Christians should be concerned about is their final resting place.

    Hebrews 4:9-11 So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has Himself also rested from works, as God did from His. 11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience.
