← Does Religious Liberty Equal Freedom to Discriminate?

it seemed unfathomable to me that the President’s statement that we should grant some additional rights to some individuals represented an attack on the liberty of others.

Thanks, Lawro, nice piece. Would have changed 'additional rights' to 'equal rights', but hey.

Also want to re-state Carto's point regarding the UK. The religious have been promised that they wont have to perform 'Gay' marriages in their churches by way of selling them the deal.

We have to fight this at every level both on a point of strategy and principal.

This allows the use of private power to both distinguish and diminish the rights of other citizens of the state.

Whilst we should at all times agree with their right of assembly and their right to perform ceremony recognised by their church, we should not allow them to act as an office of state unless that office is available to all citizens of the state.
