The Conscience Clause: Discrimination is un-Christian

From one response to our consultation on the DUP’s conscience clause:

Christ commands that his followers must not treat any other human being in a way in which they would not like to be treated themselves. This attempt to legalise discrimination against LGBT people is unchristian and sinful.

  1. Presumably, though, if you were sinning, you would want to be told to stop sinning. So if you think that same-sex relationships are sinful, the by telling someone in one that they are sinning, you are treating them as you would wish to be treated.

    For instance, if I were engaged in an adulterous relationship, I would want to be told that I was sinning and I should suffer the consequences of my sin. I would certainly not want anyone who discovered it to help me cover up my sin so my wife never found out.
