-"Judicial activism"?

-Non-discrimination laws spun into a "denial of freedom of choice to all employers"?

-Claims about how the "zeal to undergird the rights of one group...trample[s] on the rights of another"?

-A right that's painted as a slippery slope?

-An attempt to seize Christian opinion on a particular issue, with the accompanying suggestion that too much of the flock is "being taken in by slogans and catchphrases without stopping to analyze their true meaning"?
