When "Religious Freedom" Is Blind

 | 

When I was a lad, Christians of the highest standing condoned shutting blacks from restaurants and hotels. They did so because in large measure they had been led to believe God meant it to be that way. It had the patina of a religious calling. Many became violent when it became illegal.

More recently, gay and lesbian people could be scourged and publicly shamed under similar premises. The "deviants" were considered anathema by the Almighty whose followers were therefore commissioned to punish them.
