To give an example, faith leaders said a Catholic charity group that believes sex outside heterosexual marriage is a sin should not be denied government funding because it refused to employ a leader who was openly gay.
Um. YES THEY FUCKING SHOULD BE DENIED.
Look, there's a very easy way to preserve your oh-so-sacred belief that the gays are icky. Don't take government cash. That way, you won't have to touch any dollars a gay person might have touched, and you can continue to be bigots in pointless, stupid ways, and everybody will be happy. Your religious freedom is perfectly preserved.
This is just whining. BUT MOOOOOOOM, I WANT THE MONEY! Tough fucking shit. If I want to earn money from somebody, I have to do the job he hired me to do in the way he hired me to do it. Government's no different. Government hires you to do a job without discriminating, you do it without discriminating. Otherwise you ain't done the job, and you ain't getting paid.
Now, you say you're gonna be broke without that sweet government contract? That now you can't have everything your heart desires? That you might have to lay some people off or close some buildings or God forbid melt down a gold crucifix or two?
I'm sure the Lord will provide for you, if you're truly doing His work.
