For several hundred years now, the Bible has been a source of confusion for humankind. So much so that we have over a thousand different religions, each with their own peculiar interpretation of scripture.
And then there are people like a Georgia florist who pick and choose which so-called sins in the Bible are particularly bad ones.
CNN’s Gary Tuchman interviewed several florists in Georgia, asking employees and owners if they would serve homosexuals. Every single one of them said they would not due to their religious beliefs.
Melissa Jeffcoat was one of the florists interviewed, and her confounding response underscores everything that many Americans find repulsive about certain Christians.
Below is the transcript of the exchange:
Tuchman: … In the Ten Commandments, it says you can’t commit adultery…
Tuchman: It says you need to honor your father and mother.
Tuchman: If someone didn’t honor their parents or committed adultery, would you serve them?
Tuchman: Well, why would you serve them but not serve someone who is gay?
Jeffcoat: It’s just a different kind of sin to me and I just don’t believe in it.
