    This sure seems unconstitutional on the face of it, even if it i nothing more than virtue signaling.

    I’d agree.
    It’s a constant wearing-down of any conservative and/or Judeo-Christian values. While we’re not paying attention, society morphs, and what was once considered immoral becomes protected to the point of being unassailable. It’s a rather short walk to making illegal religious beliefs that go against these groups. I.e., the cake-baker suit, with a differently composed court.

    Some people will go to no ends with this kind of social brainwashing.
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    It seems to me that religion and 'morality' have lost their meaning in any public forum. Personally I think it's beyond problematic, since our system of government requires acting in the best interests of the many. Still and all, we-as rhetorical we-do not really count morality in leaders, so it becomes difficult to expect those leaders to act moral. Same in foreign affairs too:

    Just one example.

    Default Just my opinion here, but...

    Maybe all of this craziness can explain the reasons for fewer people attending churches these days? Not that we, or they have lost their Faith, or Belief, but rather...to avoid the confrontations caused by the Less Intelligent, Always Offended who are afraid THEY WILL BE SINGLED-OUT...as Racist's too!

    As for me. NOBODY ALIVE can change my mind, or try to remove the UNSEEN Faith I have. They are the one's who have all of the problems. Not Me.
    I may be older than most. I may say things not everybody will like.
    But despite all of that. I will never lower myself to the level of Liars, Haters, Cheats, and Hypocrites.

    I go to church, not once has anyone singled me out for anything, other than, "Good morning." What church do you go to?
