The movement to allow discrimination in the name of religion is gathering pace. LGBTI people and our allies need to seriously consider how we respond. This paper by long-time advocate, Rodney Croome, looks at some of the most common defences of religious privilege and how to respond to them.
Why would anyone want to be married by someone who doesn’t want to marry them?
Shouldn’t a Christian baker be able to refuse to bake a gay wedding cake just like a gay baker should be able to refuse bake a cake with an anti-gay slur?
Won’t the market look after this by sending discriminatory businesses to the wall?
Now LGBTI have their rights, shouldn’t religious people have their rights protected too?
For answers to those questions and many more, download Rodney’s paper here.
