The Rev. John Zuhlsdorf, known nationally as “Father Z” on his popular blog, posted his suggestion under the title, “When they come to destroy your business because you are pro-traditional family.”
Zuhlsdorf, a priest in the Madison Catholic Diocese, suggests that when a gay couple seeks the services of a Christian business owner for “their immoral event,” the owner should accept. He then explains what the business owner should do next.
“Tell them that the food and services will be just fine,” Zuhlsdorf writes. “And then inform them that all of the money that they pay for the services will be donated to a traditional pro-family lobby.”
Erickson goes on to interview Father Z.
So.... I haven't talked about it in a while... almost out of fear, but right now Catholic Charities in Wisconsin right now may be forced to capitulate on gay adoptions. We saw the hammer come down on Catholic Charities in Illinois. I hope dioceses have taken steps to prepare themselves for legal action.
