What if you hold deep religious views that certain races are not worthy, in the eyes of YOUR God, and you don't have to serve them?

Or you hold deep religious views, that polygamy is just wonderful, in the eyes of YOUR God?

Or you hold deep religious views about eating meat on Friday. Whoops. For years the public schools served EVERYBODY meat on Friday, to accommodate Catholic children's' beliefs. Then the Church just u and changed their beliefs.

Case in point: The Mormon church changed their views, to conform to civil law. The Catholic church changed their views for what I have no idea.

So in other words, you think the government has the right to hold a gun to a Christian's head and shout "OBEY!"

Sounds like what you'd think.

The real lesson here is to illustrate how some states are becoming "the new slavery states", vis-a-vis those other states where "traditional freedoms" are [at least for a while yet] maintained.

The only solution for traditionalists is to get out of the new slavery states, and flee to the traditional freedom states.  While there remain a few left. (I realize that's not easy if one's livelihood is tied up in farming)

I wonder if at some point, they'll all be gone ??

Yes, Americans are forced by law into "right thinking."  By statute, we must behave one way (though we may believe another).

I seem to recall from my history class where that's called "tyranny."
NeverTrump wants to deny you YOUR voice, YOUR presidential choice.
