Several students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison admit that Muslims should not be forced by law to do business with Christians. Those same students, however, had a hard time agreeing that Christians or conservative Americans have the right to decline work that conflicts with their conscience or religion.
In a viral video published by Arizona-based nonprofit Alliance Defending Freedom (ADL), students were asked if they support Sophie Theallet’s decision not to dress Melania Trump.
Several students agreed that Theallet — one of many fashion designers declining to dress the first family — has every 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 to not sing in a Christian church.
“Yeah, if that goes against your religious view, I feel you have a right to turn that down,” one student said.
