Now, Bronx disc jockey Clifton McLaughlin, a born-again Christian, says he'll refuse, if asked, to work at gay weddings.
"This is based on God's law," McLaughlin told me. "There is no way man can come with his own law."
Could he be punished? Well, yes! A gay couple denied service by a DJ, not to mention a florist or wedding band, has grounds to sue in Civil Court, a Cuomo spokesman told me.
I don't want to go back to a society wherein a business can post a "no coloreds allowed" sign on the door. Why is gayness any different?
On the other hand, businesses (like DJs and florists) don't have to accept every job offer that comes their way, either. There are many reasons why they might not do a job.
So how do we reconcile these two diverging thoughts?
