RJ ... where this leads you is to oppose all anti-discrimination law.

Yes, in the case of private groups/individuals, not in the case of institutions of state.

That may be a principled position - a Libertarian one, perhaps. But if that's the way you want to argue it, it has nothing much to do with religious freedom.

Why? I dont follow.

It can get difficult, but it's important to sort out what is an argument based on freedom of religion and what is an argument based on something else, such as Libertarian political philosophy or concerns about freedom of association.

Freedom of religion and freedom of association (from state interference) are equally important if you're concerned with liberty.
