Let's everyone stop dancing around this Freedom of Religion Measure 3, and call it what it really is: The Freedom to Hate Measure.
When a ballot measure is designed to give a specific group of individuals special rights to pawn off their personal beliefs to everyone around them, especially religious theological beliefs, that measure needs to be questioned. This Measure 3 will give individuals with deeply held religious beliefs the right to withhold goods and services from individuals who may want those goods and services, based solely on their personal religious beliefs that the activities that may be associated with those goods or services are against their beliefs, and with no consequences.
This is discrimination in its purist form, and discrimination that may become state-sponsored if approved. This is a thinly disguised attempt by the Christian communities to further force their personal religious agenda onto everyone around them and make it state-supported hatred. This is not OK.
