Just what is religion? Some are more equal than others?

Can you choose your clients? It appears the government says no. Greenfield notes a recent decision where the Court Rules Christian Photographers Must “Compromise their Religious Values” for Gay Wedding.

“Why must we “compromise our values” to accommodate clashing values. Why can’t the people acting out their imaginary wedding compromise their values instead by leaving photographers who don’t want their business alone?

Why is the need of two lesbians to have a wedding photographers more compelling than Freedom of Religion?”

The lesbians found another photographer but filed a complaint against the one who declined to provide service. The judge ruled that the complaint was valid and photographers cannot decline to serve clients because of religious reasons. What that means is that the idea thaat “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free expression thereof” (1st ammendment to the U.S. Constitution) is quite restricted. It is not only egregious practice in the name of religion, such as human sacrifice or such things, that can be subject to law, it is now the simple matter of choosing with whom one does business. Congress has defined protected classes and they have a status that supercedes the Constitution according to this judge.

The idea that some folks are more equal than others has been in the news a lot lately.
