Students interviewed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison believe that Muslims should not be forced by law to do business with Christians. Yet those same students had a hard time agreeing that Christians have the right to decline work that goes against their conscience or religion.
In a video produced by nonprofit Alliance Defending Freedom (ADL), students were asked if they support Sophie Theallet’s decision not to dress First Lady Melania Trump.
Several students agreed that Theallet has a right to refuse to dress Mrs. Trump. The students were also asked if a Muslim singer solicited by a Christian church to sing had a right to refuse.
Again, the students agreed that the Muslim singer has a right not to sing in a Christian church.
“Yeah, if that goes against your religious view, I feel you have a right to turn that down,” said one student.
The students also said that a law forcing Muslims to sing inside a Christian church should not exist.
When asked if a Christian photographer should be allowed by law to decline to photograph a same-sex wedding, the students appeared torn.
“For them,” the ADL notes, “it seems that the freedom to live and work according to your beliefs really depends on what you believe.”
