Oregon laws forcing businesses to perform acts which go against their religious beliefs are clearly forgetting this wonderful document called the Constitution.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"
I am not quite sure what people do not understand about the First Amendment?
When one is forced to do things which go against their religion, they are PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE of said religion.
We see it in Obamacare quite clearly. When we start forcing doctors to provide abortions and religious institutions to provide oral contraception we are directly counteracting everything the First Amendment allows us to do as citizens of this country. (However long that may be with Obama running the country into the ground)
My issues on gay marriage do not matter at all, nor do yours, they are all protected by the Constitution. Apparently our forefathers knew what they were doing.
