NOM working on go-nowhere legislation exempting business owners who wish to discriminate against gay customers

by Jeremy Hooper

From the National Organization For Marriage's latest fundraising pitch:

Oh, I can't wait to read this bill's text! They of course won't seek exemptions for all categories, as they know that removing nondiscrimination protections in the areas of race, sex, religion, etc. would make their cause seem as entitled and menacing as it is. They're clearly only talking about LGBT protections and those cake bakers, florists, county clerks, inn keepers, and other vendors/employees who think that that their personal faith allows them to flout fair business practice. So somehow they're going to have to explain why it's perfectly fair for religious people to be protected from this same kind of discrimination, as it applies to their faith (something virtually every LGBT person supports), but why they can, for some strange reason, use that very same religiosity to deny protections for others.

CAN'T! WAIT! TO! READ! Then again, I am a sucker for artfully crafted fiction.
