I'd agree with that. These proposed laws however, are repugnant. It's a solution in search of a problem. And a solution that creates many more potential problems greater than the one it purportedly seeks to remedy.
By tying it to religious freedom they are opening a huge can of worms. They really should just say "It's ok to discriminate against homos."
It gets to the point of what they really want to do and doesn't legitimize discrimination for a whole range of other things that they really weren't focused on anyway.
I just wonder how it is that we've managed to avoid up till now the controversy of the evangelical Christian photographer being forced to take the gig at the Muslim wedding. Or the Wiccan wedding!
