Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
They dont think homosexuality will disappear if they have freedom of religion.....@_@ They would probably have the right to persecute gays if they had the religious freedom they want tho...that is what I was trying to clarify in my posts.
Another example, if someone is a lobbyist for a political group it is reasonable for the group to require that the lobbyist hold political views compatible with the group. It is not reasonable for the group to refuse to hire someone with contrary views if their job is to do the books (accounting).

"Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."
That seems to allow an intolerant view toward others as long as you are not interfering with others. And the others have to be tolerant to you as long as they don't interfere with you. A person is allowed to hate me and not serve me or sell to me. I have to go elsewhere. It would be intolerant if I insisted that he conform to my reality and views.
What are "basic human rights"? Is it logical that simply because I have a business I surrender my freedom of thought and conscience? The person can simply go to someone else. It is illogical to demand that I do something simply because I started something that I did not have to start. A person does not become a slave to some "societal standards" simply because he wants to sell a product. It is wrong to force people to do commerce with each other.
