Even with so called great legal minds working on it, there so far has been no success finding a way to practice “religious liberty” without discrimination. Giving more religious rights to one group takes away rights from another. If someone owns an apartment building but has a religious hang up about homosexuality, refusing to rent to two men or two women takes away rights.
Anti abortion religious views have the same problem. By outlawing abortions, one cell has been given rights while some rights of the woman have been taken away. Like all the other prohibitions based on religious views, this is a zero sum game.
Those who claim religious views should always have the upper hand in these conflicts claim they take away only unimportant options. It is not important individuals of the same sex be discriminated against in housing, they say. People attracted to others of the same sex need only recognize its sinfulness and repent. Then they will live their lives with partners of the other sex.
To avoid unwanted pregnancies, women need only to refuse sex with men who want it. This is not an important sacrifice. Killing the fertilized cell is murder which is far more important.
The problem with using religion to justify rights is like turning on a water facet. A facet that works properly can be adjusted to flow harmlessly. One that is broken floods the house.
It is easy to see the facet is already broken by efforts to take rights away from women and gay people.
