Illinois Reception Hall Refuses To Let Lesbian Couple Hold Wedding Reception And ‘Celebrate That Sin’

The University Club, a popular downtown Moline, Illinois event hall and club is refusing  to hold a lesbian couple’s wedding reception because serving homosexuals conflicts with  the manager’s “religious beliefs”.

WQAD – TV:

In a phone interview with WQAD, Stewart says it is all true, and defended her right to refusal.

“I am a biblical Christian and I do not believe in homosexual marriage, that’s correct. And because marriage is a covenant that God created for man and woman, as a biblical Christian, I cannot help them into or celebrate that sin,” said Stewart. Stewart is the wife of the president of the University Club, and daughter-in-law of its owners.

She says the family discussed the issue of gay marriage receptions after neighboring state Iowa approved same-sex marriage and Illinois endorsed civil unions.

But yet their website is so welcoming and says, “We have an open door policy,  All are welcome.”
