The decision of a restaurant to boot President Donald Trump's Press Secretary Sarah Sanders from its premises has elicited responses from Christian leaders, writers, and pundits who warn this will only yield further discord and violence.

Sanders posted on her Twitter page Saturday that the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia had asked her to leave the night before due to her affiliation with the president of the United States.

President Trump also weighed in on Twitter Monday: "The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!"

The story went viral over the weekend and the owner defended her actions, saying she would kick Sanders out of her restaurant again if given the chance.

"Talk about discrimination! I've met Sarah, and she's a nice lady," commented an incredulous Franklin Graham on Twitter upon hearing about what had transpired.

Al Perotta, managing editor for The Stream believes the episode highlights how polarized society has become and remarked that this is the work of a devilish spirit currently operating in America. Coupled with Rep. Maxine Waters call for people to harass Trump administration officials when they are in public places, and actor Seth Rogen's bragging that he refused to take a photo with House Speaker Paul Ryan, the recent events reveal a spiritual warfare that portends even greater darkness, he argued.

"Disconnecting from each other as human beings is a dangerous game to play. It's disconnection that makes it okay to pour bullets into a classmate when you're peeved at the world. It's disconnection — like we find with this movement that sees the other as 'evil' — that leads to widespread violence. That is straight where we're headed," Perotta said in a Sunday op-ed.

If it's within the reason for a baker to refuse service to a gay couple based off personal beliefs.
It's hypocritical to be outraged by Sanders being refused service... because of personal beliefs.

The difference is that the baker didn't hound the couple afterward. They just refused service. (And recommended another baker who would do it, iirc.)

On the other hand, democrats are advocating harassment and violence.

Violence is never right, no matter who it happens to.

The appropriate attitude toward such things is to learn how Jesus handled Satan at (Jude 9): "But even the archangel Michael [Jesus], when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not dare to bring a slanderous accusation against him [Satan], but said "The Lord rebuke you".

Here you have Jesus, who is more powerful than Satan, not speaking hateful against the very person who ruined the universe.

It goes on to say: "These men speak abusively against whatever they do not understand; and what things they do understand by instinct, like unreasoning animals- these are the very things that destroy them." (Jude 10)
