A lesbian couple purchased engagement rings from a Christian jeweler.They were so pleased with the service, they referred a friend to the shop to purchase a ring for his girlfriend. Said friend spied a sign that read: “The sanctity of marriage is under attack. Let’s keep marriage between a man and a woman.”
Offense was taken. Once upon a time, this would have led to, in ascending order: an eye roll, daggered glares or an inquiry about the sentiment with perhaps a few words exchanged ending in an agreement to disagree.
That is no longer the world in which we live. The sign was reported to the lesbian couple. Now they want their money back. There’s no problem with the rings. The problem is that the jeweler disagrees with the couple on the definition of marriage.
