It starts with little shit and ends up with things like this. The courts have already given us second class free expression rights. The ACA wants to put our missions out of business. Some folks in the public are getting the idea....
""He was a really, genuinely warm individual," said professor Stephen Cunha, the chairman of Humboldt University's religious studies department where Freed taught for more than 10 years. "... Kind is the word that comes to mind, sensitive."

Christians complaining of persecution in Britain need to "grow up", the former Archbishop of Canterbury has said, as he argues feeling "mildly uncomfortable" is not comparable to real suffering elsewhere.
Lord Williams said religious believers should be wary of complaining about their treatment in the Western world, with those claiming they are "persecuted" making him "very uneasy".
