Pastor’s plan to peacefully side-step gay lobby could shut down attacks on Christian businesses

A Kansas pastor is taking the gay lobby head-on in a fight to protect religious liberty and is offering a simple plan that he believes could halt the continued assault on Christian businesses and churches.

“I’m encouraging Christian pastors, churches, florists, bakers and boutique merchants to join together in concrete and deliberate steps to take a stand and protect the principle of American Christian Liberty,” Rev. CJ Conner said.

Conner, author of “Jesus and the Culture Wars: Reclaiming the Lord’s Prayer” says merchants who cater weddings should offer exclusive binding contracts with Bible-adhering churches.

All other business transactions can be conducted as usual, but wedding services would be protected under the exclusive contracts. Conner says that merchants would not be limited to only one faith communities but would be free from offering wedding services to the general public.

Charisma News reports that congregations will also need to seek Christian business that adhere to like values for the purposes of entering into the contracts.

Conner believes that places of worship are at great risk of being targeted directly by the growing gay lobby agenda, and most will need to re-vamp their by-laws so that only confirmed congregation members can use their facilities.

“The burgeoning agenda of the gay lobby will soon turn to other targets on the horizon, including the ‘fair use’ of sacred worship spaces,” said Rev Conner.

“In fact, the Alliance Defending Freedom/Faith has warned that the next battle-front for Christian liberty could well be where churches charter Boy Scout Troops. Congregations that allow the Boy Scouts to use their facilities either for rent or for free are at risk of legal liability should they refuse to perform a gay marriage on the basis of religious liberty,” Conner said.

It’s astonishing how far America has regressed over the last decade.

The gay-lobby that supposedly prides itself on the freedom of expression is forcing those who don’t believe what they do to operate exclusively for legitimate fear of legal repercussions.

Should there be any doubt, see the family owned pizzeria that was so overwhelmed with threats and negative publicity – simply for stating a Christian belief – it was run out of business.

Conner said the ultimate goal is for businesses and churches to position themselves to where they will not have to participate with the gay lobby at all.

“For faithful Christians, we are called to the same long-suffering as our Lord Jesus who gave His all for us on the cross on Good Friday. To the extent that we can peacefully side-step and not engage the gay lobby at all, we will be free for gospel mission – to be a holy blessing to our communities and the world,” Conner said.
