Liberals against Religious Liberty in Indiana -NRO

Gay Americans in Pennsylvania and Florida do not seem to have been very much burdened by those states’ RFRA statutes, nor by similar constitutional provisions in such bastions of reaction as Massachusetts and Minnesota. But individuals such as Jack Phillips of the Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado have been made into outlaws because their religious scruples compel them to forgo the custom of clients planning same-sex weddings. There is no guarantee that Indiana’s RFRA will prevent that sort of heavy-handed coercion in the Hoosier State, but it creates the opportunity for coming to a sensible arrangement that respects the dignity of all parties involved. And that, needless to say, is why the people who perversely call themselves liberals oppose it.

I’m such an extremist, I think that actually balancing the cost to the profit is an inherently good thing before taking an action– and yes, forcing people to do a thing is a cost, even before we get to the money type costs.

  1. Also, remember that in their mind, it’s “freedom to worship” not freedom of religion. If you want to have a religious practice, that’s fine, as long as you don’t actually live it out in your daily life.
