Christian printing company refuses to make invitations for civil union

A ‘Bible-believing Christian’ company refuses to print a civil partnership order noting that they do not support same-sex marriage.

Beulah Print and Design of Drogheda in Ireland refused the commission from Jonathon Brennan noting his religious beliefs and this prompted the businessman, 29, to turn to the press.

Brennan told the Irish Independent he was “infuriated and shocked”. He had been a client of the printing company for four years. He is due to celebrate a civil partnership with his long-term partner John Kierans in August.

Mike O’Leary, a co-founder of Beulah Print and Design, told the BBC that he did not hold a “morally neutral” attitude towards homosexuality, although he accepted that some people did practice it.

The company also refuses to print material that promotes binge drinking, Halloween, “borderline pornography” and what he described as “the dark arts.”

He backed the actions of the Christian-owned Ashers Baking when they refused last year to bake a cake with a logo supporting gay marriage.

O’Leary co-founded the firm 12 years ago, after meeting Tuite through Christian fellowship meetings in Drogheda.

The company has a public stance: “We, at Beulah Print, are Bible-believing Christians who are committed to standing by our conscience and God’s Word.”
