No Wedding Cakes for Gay Weddings?
Yet Christian bakeries provide cakes to heterosexual weddings where alcohol is frequently abused, so is that condoning alcoholism? By doing so, you're affirming what they're doing, which is sin.
How about providing a wedding cake for warmongers, men and women in the military? That's affirming the opposite of what Jesus taught about non-violence and how we are to love, not bomb, our enemies.
Kevin DeYoung has an article expressing the anti gay wedding view.http://www.churchleaders.com/pastors/videos-for-pastors/254251-kevin-deyoung-attend-homosexual-friends-wedding.html
On that post, Costa K states:
So should we go to a wedding if the couple have already been living together? That is, "living in sin"?
Should we go to a wedding if the couple already have children? That is, "born out of wedlock"?
Should we go to a wedding of two unbelievers that is officiated by a celebrant and there's no mention of God?
Conversely, should we go to a wedding of two unbelievers who make promises to God yet have no intention of keeping them?
Should we go to a wedding where the couple just want the old stone church to look great in their photos so they grin and bear all the God-bits?
We've all been to weddings such as these. Yet if we are consistent, we wouldn't attend any wedding that was outside of God's set design and purpose. Yet we do.
Or is the bar set merely at gender? That is, so long as the couple are male/female, it doesn't really matter what their situation is.
I have a feeling that we are inconsistent in our beliefs and practices about the weddings we currently attend and officiate.
Perhaps we need to give greater thought to what we are already doing, rather than focusing on if we should go to a gay wedding.
