"Religious Liberty" in Bizarro World
A November 11 posting on the National Review's blog The Corner provides yet another excellent example of how truly distorted a certain sub-set of conservatives sense of reality can be. Wesley Smith's "California Against Religious Liberty in Business" is a pretty good glimpse into the bizarro world that some conservatives insist on living. His seven paragraphs can be summed up rather quickly. In his warped and fucked up thinking by merely not allowing employers to force their religious views on those they employ the government has infringed on their religious rights. Apparently, if you have enough money and influence you can not only force others to live by your own religious beliefs but you can falsely label it "religious liberty."
