(FaithWire) – A conservative law firm recently sent an interviewer to the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus to speak with students about their views on business owners’ freedom to opt out of providing services based on their worldview — and the results were fascinating.
The interviewer started out by asking a number of people whether fashion designers should have the right to refuse to work with First Lady Melania Trump, as some have opted to do, to which they answered affirmatively.
“I guess that’s that company’s choice,” one respondent said. “I mean, it’s a free market.”
From there, the conversation turned to the rights of a Muslim singer to refuse performing at a Christian church.
“So, let’s say you were a Muslim singer here in Madison and a church approached you for an Easter service for you to sing, do you have the right to opt out of that?” the interviewer asked, with responses ranging from “I guess so” to definitive “yeses.”
