    No, it was relevant and accurate...you are the one that attempted to misuse it when you couldnt actually demonstrate any such efforts on the part of religions in the past.

    You proved my point tho when you couldnt.

    I limited my examples to Christian cases. Their actions were constant and universal. You must inhabit a different universe.

    Re: Gov. Mike Pence: Change RFRA law to make it clear discrimination won't be allowed

    Analysis: Critics want it both ways

    ". . . . If we are unwilling to impose an absolute rule of service regardless of content, then we need to be honest about our reservations and look more closely at how to allow people to opt out of certain expressive services. If people can decline offensive services, we need to focus our attention on defining those services that are inherently expressive and those that are not. We need to discuss not the central issue of discrimination but those cases on the margins that deal with legitimate speech. As Benjamin Franklin noted, a great empire, like a great cake, is most easily diminished at the edges.

    Only if you think an open to the public business in the business of baking cakes treating people equally is infringing on religious conscious.

    Madison wrote to protect religious conscience from state action.
