“We are a Christian, faith-based organization that really does adhere to biblical standards. Our view is that it (same-sex marriage) is inappropriate,” Executive Director Dan Doty told The Kansas City Star.
“We want to stay true to our biblical convictions, yet we do love all people,” he added.
No, you don't. The group says in fact that hosting of same-sex couples violates Christian principles and because they adhere to the Bible, they cannot allow these couples to spend the night in the shelter.
As a non-profit organization, the City Union Mission does not have to comply with nondiscrimination laws.
The group apparently did not understand that when deciding to help others, you don't discriminate based on sexual orientation or another criterion, and there is no religion.
