    That's exactly what a lot of people said after the Hobby Lobby decision, including me. And we were right. There also is no slippery slope in this ruling.

It is possible that it will continue to decline, but unlikely that it won't reach a low point, then head back up or even out to a steady rate.
    Well, thanks for clearing that up.

    Well let's see.

    One example: The liberal/progressive forces are attempting to reward illegal aliens, and in fact are promoting more to come here. This agenda is being pushed at the extreme peril of the Black Communities, who apparently aren't viewed as important, other than to gin up occasional emotional responses that will be met with nothing but platitudes from the left.

    In light of everything else, how long do you think voters are going to tolerate the heavy handed actions that are being force fed to them?

    Or interesting enough for you to comprehend the facts.

    Society in general doesn't care about gay marriage. Polling data suggests the majority of people support the principle of gay couples getting married. Certainly there is much being said about what people see as the co-opting of the actual word "marriage", which will remain a point of contention for a large segment of the population.

    In the broad picture, there have been many changes forced upon society in recent years. From issues related to education, to immigration, to government regulation. These aren't small adjustments, they are significant cultural sea changes that in many cases have been done with little to no input from society as a whole.

    Funny how rights that are so important that they were specifically written into the Constitution are nullified by the government, but they manage to find other things they claim are guaranteed by the Constitution, that are not even mentioned.

    But, hey, that's will never be a problem when a government does that.

    Hmmm... let's see, maybe ask the Japanese that were interned in camps if the government nullified any of their rights. Of course, there are other examples.
