For John, BLUF: The Government is effective to the degree it can maintain a balance. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Washington Examiner is this headline (and article) "Flashback: Hillary Clinton defended husband Bill's religious freedom law".
I am guessing our definition of religious freedom is on a sliding scale and the scale is marked in terms of degree of "minority" status. In terms of majority rule and minority rights, we need to work to prevent minority rights restricting the rights of middle groups, neither the majority or the minority.
