Quote of the Day

(H/T Instapundit)

Mark Movsesian of the Center for Law and Religion Forum blog, a product of St. John University Law School writes on what the Chick-Fil-A controversy really is a sign of — the budding war which will be an intolerant left-wing activist base pushing social change against those who wish to hang on to their traditional way of worship and the beliefs that come with them.

He predicts it will not be pretty.

The Chick-fil-A corporate leadership supports traditional marriage from religious conviction, so the controversy has implications for religious freedom in America. It’s encouraging to see that Americans understand the value of free religious expression and disapprove of government’s attempts to bully people into silence – even if they disagree with the religious views being expressed. The controversy does reveal something ominous, though. As Robert George and others have written, the coming clash over religious freedom in America will likely involve sexuality: abortion, contraception, pornography, same-sex marriage, and so on. On sexuality, progressives seem increasingly unable even to understand the worldview of traditional religious communities like Muslims, Evangelical Christians, Orthodox Jews, and the Catholic Church. The intuitions are totally different: what traditional religious communities can’t help but see as common sense, progressives can’t help but see as psychological repression and bigotry. Disagreement is profound. Clashes may be very ugly, indeed.
