Wrong, Religious Right

If they had intended to, the sponsors of HB 1023 could not have drummed up better campaign fodder with which to turn critical independent voters away from Republicans this fall. Allowing businesses to pick and choose which laws they must obey based on their religious beliefs would be an invitation to legal bedlam. Here’s an extreme example to prove the point: What if a jihadist Muslim decided that the Koran’s injunction to slay Christian infidels allowed him to ignore the legal prohibition against bloody murder? The slippery slope is steep. All this bill does is allow Democrats in the coming elections to portray all Republicans as bigoted zealots. And without protecting anyone’s religious rights. The bill will never become law. SUNK
