A lesbian couple, Harriet Bernstein and Luisa Paster, asked Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association for permission to hold their civil union. Ocean Grove, who is associated with the United Methodist Church, declined the request because of their belief in what the Bible says against homosexuality.

Administrative law judge Solomon Metzger disagreed and ruled that Ocean Grove violated the civil rights of the lesbian couple. In his decision, he wrote,

    “The respondent violated the [Law Against Discrimination] when it refused to conduct a civil-union ceremony for Ms. Bernstein and Ms. Paster."

When evil is legislated, what are the people to do?  In Red China, it's illegal to give birth to a second baby.
