If their beliefs were really so " sincere " they wouldn't discriminate .. Did the teachings of the Master they follow ever include discrimination ?

AN ACT relating to construction of the law.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky:
&#61666;SECTION 1. A NEW SECTION OF KRS CHAPTER 446 IS CREATED TO READ AS FOLLOWS:
Government shall not substantially burden a person's freedom of religion. The right to act or refuse to act in a manner motivated by a sincerely held religious belief may not be substantially burdened unless the government proves by clear and convincing evidence that it has a compelling governmental interest in infringing the specific act or refusal to act and has used the least restrictive means to further that interest. A "burden" shall include indirect burdens such as withholding benefits, assessing penalties, or an exclusion from programs or access to facilities.

THAT is pure Regent University Law School.

It could pass Constitutional scrutiny, and it's possible repercussions could include some of the most dangerous assaults upon the 1st Amendment I've ever envisioned.

Snyper, you really are a piece of garbage.
He wasn't trying to insult you. We registered often do personal messaging which you are unable to do, or we with you. I have actually gotten friendly OFF Topix with other posters over the years and count some of them as good friends now. Why spread our private chat amongst the pit bulls who slaver over Topix?

Sorry, David, I wondered at it and it was my own pre coffee mistake. I could not imagine you being so prickly and angry.
