I went golfing with my buddies: a Jew, a Baptist and an agnostic. I am called a good Catholic. That night, I went to a restaurant and a Jewish waitress served me a hamburger, knowing that I should not eat meat on Friday. Plus, I believe Jesus is God; and she knows he was just a good prophet.
All in all, I don’t think anyone violated their conscience by supporting the other person’s religious beliefs or needed to modify their own. Being with others or serving them or handing them a hamburger or a piece of paper doesn’t change one’s religion or freedom thereof.
