The issue of balancing freedom of religion and gay rights within our society is a matter which we must address. I expressed my thoughts on this in my latest Huffington Post blog: When Religions Preach Discrimination Are Their Freedoms Worth Protecting?
original title for the post, btw, was 'Discrimination and Freedom of Religion' but it
was changed by the editors. Their title perhaps served to garner more attention to the article but it also somewhat did not, I feel, portray what I was thinking.
There are presently 9 comments on my post on
the Huffington Post site.
feel free to comment here or there.
