WTFWJD

Not long ago, someone asked one of my Facebook friends, "Would Jesus bake a wedding cake for a gay couple? Would Jesus host a gay couple at his bed-and-breakfast?" These questions were intended as a gotcha, an attempt to shout down something my friend shared that argued that Christians should support marriage equality.

Leaving aside the fact that the gospels never establish for certain whether Jesus established a bakery or a BnB, the answer to both questions seems obvious -- yes. To conclude otherwise requires either ignorance of what Jesus says in the gospels, or a malicious misreading of those words.

If you don't think Jesus would at least hit the bar for "minimally decent human being", you're doing Christianity wrong.
