    they cannot serve a gay person dinner, or help them with an illness or even supply flowers?

    Nowhere
    so their religion has no such rules they claim they have to follow

      to consider pork-eating Samaritans their neighbors whom they should love, there wouldn't be any problem if they actually believed the Bible. But saying that you believe every word of the Bible literally is a Dog Whistle among various Religious Right factions (Evangelical, Catholic, Mormon) for believing somebody's particular wacked-out interpretation in support of some combination of racism, misogyny, bigotry, nativism, Mammonism, anti-Semitism, Crusaderism, hatred of science, dominionism, theonomy, chiliasm, and a few other isms and asms. (I read that stuff so you don't even have to know all the words.)

      You know, Pat Robertson, Mike Huckabee, John Hagee, Ken Ham, Rick Santorum, Westboro Baptist…

      Because, according to Paul, the Christian Covenant replaced the Jewish Covenant with Abraham, and so all of the "Old Testament" laws no longer apply. To them. Just to you, and only when they want them to.

      Back off, man. I'm a logician.—GOPBusters™
