Therefore, if you have never heard of “Blaine Amendments”, you will find it worthwhile to read King Solomon Blog, Blaine Folly of Religious Bigotry to End? In particular, check out the articles that scatterwisdom links to. Well worth your time to read. So-called Liberals/Progressives may claim to be defending religious freedom, but history and a review of the issues readily suggests otherwise.
