Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, appeared on TheDove TV on Friday to warn that not allowing government clerks or business owners to discriminate against gay couples amounts to “the weaponizing of government” against Christians.
After host Perry Atkinson asserted that America is heading for more conflict in the wake of the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling as more and more Christian business owners and government officials refuse to provide services to same-sex couples, Land declared that not allowing Christians to discriminate in this manner is unconstitutional anti-Christian persecution.
“To me, this is the weaponizing of government against its own citizens,” he said. “This case of the baker in Oregon and the case of wedding photographers in other states, this is scandalous.”
