Once again religion rears its ugly head… or should I say behind?

You can all call it practicing your religion, but if you refuse service for this reason you are still just a bigot.

These arguments have already been deemed wrong by history. You lost the right to segregate, to make people drink from a different fountain and to refuse life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Your religious doctrine is not up for discussion when you use it to refuse what the Constitution allows to all equally.

Equal protection under the law is here to stay.

— Robert Cappa, Bedford
