religious liberty is vile weasel word euphemism for justified segregation.

If your religion requires you to deny baking a cake for somebody then your religion is based on segregation and bigotry.

Vicious Babushka,

Thanks for pointing this article out to us. The concept of Religious Liberty it seems has been abused by bigots for a long time.

The GOP has a long, proud history of being total dicks.

From Rush Limbaugh’s favorite year, 1957:

“The central question that emerges … is whether the White community in the South is entitled to take such measures as are necessary to prevail, politically and culturally, in areas in which it does not prevail numerically? The sobering answer is Yes — the White community is so entitled because, for the time being, it is the advanced race. It is not easy, and it is unpleasant, to adduce statistics evidencing the cultural superiority of White over Negro: but it is a fact that obtrudes, one that cannot be hidden by ever-so-busy egalitarians and anthropologists.”—William F. Buckley

When I need a chuckle, and feel sorry for the state of the world, I just listen to a James David Manning sermon.

Well they were right about race mixing being “Communism”, I mean you can’t find Caucasians in Russia anymore!

the headline of this Page article could re-written into a question and be used as this:

“When will ‘Religious Liberty’ Be Used to Justify Racism Instead of Homophobia?”

The answer to this question will be : “Exactly 5 seconds after the legislation is passed.”

“Religious Liberty” is a catch-all used to excuse mountains of vile behavior that has taken a long time, and will continue to take time to weed out of normal American ethics and legal bounds.

From Rush Limbaugh’s favorite year, 1957:

And Buckley was the allegedly sane, non-racist leader of the RW intellectuals of his day. So much for that notion.

Sadly the movement doesn’t even have a Buckley these days. Even if he was a dick, he was less retarded than the tea baggers and radio/TV blowhard pundits who have taken his place.
