Indiana’s RFRA and a Macro Perspective on the Culture Wars

Posted in Uncategorized by Ryan on the April 1st, 2015

Tim Carney encapsulates the sentiment held by many on the right regarding the culture war fireworks with the recent outburst on the left over Indiana’s RFRA.

From gay marriage to abortion, the left has become unsatisfied with tolerance and even legal recognition of their positions. They now demand philosophical compliance and legal enforcement of their positions. Where once they requested respect and tolerance, they now extend neither.

Religious liberty is the terms of surrender the Right is requesting in the culture war. It is conservative America saying to the cultural and political elites, you have your gay marriage, your no-fault divorce, your obscene music and television, your indoctrinating public schools and your abortion-on-demand. May we please be allowed to not participate in these?

But no. Tolerance isn’t the goal. Religious conservatives must atone for their heretical views with acts of contrition: Bake me a cake, photograph my wedding, pay for my abortion and my contraception.
