Loren, you are right.  We do have to spell it out again and again.

Not that long ago, I heard this referred to as the "tyranny of the majority."  The "right to discriminate"?!?  [sigh] It seems as though we almost have to spell out the issues of rights and responsibilities concurrent with those rights in boldface before people will get it.

People may have a right to believe as they please, but when the exercise of that right transgresses on another who may not share that belief, a border has been crossed. The sad fact is that there are christians out there who either don't get that little nuance or don't want to.
