There is also legislation in both Kansas and Arizona that will make it legal for businessmen to reserve the right to not serve people based on religion or sexual orientation. Can we be far from making the old race card fit in that deck. Surely the Legislators have been watching that for 50 years we have been fighting discrimination? I for one will make sure that I for one will do my best to never shop or pray in any place that makes any group, second class citizens. While I think the Catholic church moved in the right direction with the selection of this pope, they should be on the way of becoming taxed for their discrimination against women being priests. Don't even get me started on the subject of paying 720 million to settle claims for sexual exploitation against women and children. If any organizations did that, the leadership would go to jail and they would be shut down. I am pretty sure that they can't prove that their "Religious Freedom" could be included in that conduct.
I am reminded that a few years back, the infamous Westboro Church bought a new truck and tried to exempt it from property taxes as belonging to the church. Rightfully the County assessor told them that they use the truck to haul the picket signs from corner to corner and that is political not religious. When the prohibition crosses the free speech line, all political groups and churches should be scrutinized.
Let me ensure to you that I for one realize that there is a fine line between free speech and stupid speech. The problem is that a lot of people want the government to step in and prohibit stupid speech. That slippery slope is one that I don't want to go down. Especially when the congress is guilty of making stupid decisions in the past. I am sure that the government would love to shut down this kind of blog.
