“First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of… all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2
Earlier this week, the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case of a web designer who seeks to set up websites that honor marriage in accordance with her religious views, but is prohibited from doing so by the state of Colorado.
The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the “creation of wedding websites is pure speech” and that Colorado compels her to create speech that she would otherwise refuse. However, the court ruled that compelling such speech was justified by Colorado’s desire to ensure LGBTQ customers have access to the services provided.
This appeal from Lorie Smith, the Colorado website developer, will likely be a major ruling that may clarify the rights of religious business owners across America. This is an issue that America’s courts have struggled with for several years, as the livelihood and rights of religious business owners hang in the balance.
LET US PRAY . . .
Father, give the U.S. Supreme Court justices the wisdom and boldness to make a righteous decision and uphold the right of religious business owners to live in peace with their neighbors. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
