You seem to be suffering from the delusion that the law does not change. It does and it should. Slavery was once legal. Are you angry that the law was changed?
Slavery was changed to embrace an eternal truth.
Homosexuals wish to change marriage so as to pervert an eternal truth.

Exemptions for religious institutions are not unlimited. Churches can't murder people (well, maybe that was a poor example....). If an organization accepts federal funds, generally the law provides that the organization must adhere to the federal law.
Criminal law and civil law are different.
And where does Watterson receive federal funds?

Federal law is not even applicable in this case.
Ms. Hale's legal challenge relates to a municipal code.

Federal labor laws supercede state and local laws. YOu do know why we have a constitution, right?

Funny how the Second Amendment is circumvented in states like Massachusetts, but you insist that the US Constitution prevents states from getting around labor law.

Actually the 2nd amendment is interpreted many ways. Only recently did SCOTUS actually rule that homeowners had the same rights as a militia. And SCOTUS didn't provide a list of accepted weapons for a militia or a homeowner, leaving the debate alive. And what I said is that federal law trumps state law. That doesn't prevent states from enacting laws until they are challenged by the feds.

What kind of idiot treats an exemption like income for a non-profit? Your leftist business sense explains why so many of you fail.

The question of possession is what I'm talking about. In Massachusetts it's almost impossible for an average citizen to possess a handgun even in his own home.
What part of "shall not be infringed" eludes you?
