Reply to Rick Warren and Other Clergy Re Hobby Lobby and Federal Grants

Rick Warren and others sent the most genteel invitation to perpetuate rank discrimination to President Obama this week. It is really quite eloquently stated. It asks that religious groups receiving federal grant money be allowed to continue discriminating against LGBT people, as a waiver from rules that would apply to others receiving those grants.

My response may not reach that level of eloquence, but I will try to be succinct:

If you want to use money that is taken from all of us, you must treat all of us fairly.

It’s just that simple.

It’s also the right thing to do.
