What I am still having problems with is why religious CHOICE constitutes a protected class. So, I'm allowed to not serve a neo-nazi or a KKK member or a socialist or any other group I find objectionable for their CHOSEN views but as soon as they justify those views by calling it "religion" I am forced to deal with them?
Can someone explain the logic for this?
Gay marriage is the big con in order to get legalized protected status. Andrew Sullivan said so himself (paraphrasing) even IF gay marriage never gets acknowledged by SCOTUS as long as 'homosexuality' gets legalized protected status that is 'all that matters' because then you have 'legal power' as a protected class.
