Nonsense; religious freedom does not protect "purposeful bigotry;" it protects the free exercise of faith and conscience. The standards set forth in the Focus proposal very closely track the thinking of Madison and Jefferson. What startles me a bit is that so many "liberals" are so ready to use the force of law to regulate private conscience--so folks who argue the loudest for absolute personal autonomy are simultaneously invoking police state powers to suppress others' personal autonomy. Rather inconsistent, I think.....
