Are Christian Business Owners Free to Choose?

In Houston, a Christian business owner refused to work for two homosexual men living together as a “couple”. Todd and Sabrina Farber are owners of The Garden Guy, and were recently contacted by a homosexual by the name of Michael Lord about bidding on a job at his home. When the Farbers found out through a phone conversation that Michael was a homosexual living with another homosexual, Gary Lackey, they very graciously declined to do the work because of their convictions about homosexuality. Here is what they said:

Subject: Cancel Appt – Garden Guy
Dear Mr. Lord,
I am appreciative of your time on the phone today and glad you contacted us. I need to tell you that we cannot meet with you because we choose not to work for homosexuals.
Best of luck in finding someone else to fill your landscaping needs.
All my best,
Todd and Sabrina Farber
Owners, Garden Guy, Inc.

Since the Farbers are very *open and up front about their faith and their stand against sin, I seriously suspect this whole episode was a set up by radical homosexual activists to try to force their lifestyle and acceptance of it on yet another outspoken Christian. (Ever noticed how homosexuals are allowed to be outspoken about their beliefs, but Christians are not?)

*From the text listed below the Farber’s Photo in their advertisement:

The God-ordained institution of marriage is under attack in courts across the nation, and your help is needed.
Go to: to take action.
Ephesians 5:8 (Amplified Bible)
... For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light and lead the lives of those native-born to the Light.

I truly believe, in spite of Lackey and Lord’s threats of boycott, that God will bless the Farbers like never before because they stood up for their faith. If I lived in Houston, I’d be looking for a project around my house that needs a really good Christian landscaper…

I heard about the article but hadn't picked up on the text of their ads that you pointed out. That makes a big difference. It does makes me wonder if it was a setup.

Either way, as usual the GLBT groups want to spin this as a civil rights violation. But aberrant sexual behavior does not generate civil rights. I'm not sure why the liberals find that so complicated.

They can boycott all they want... I suspect that the number of people who will now seek them out far surpass the number of homosexuals that will shun them!

Amen. It's time for everyone who names the name of Christ to take a stand... Choose whom we will serve. Night is fast approaching.
