Fred Clark, Slacktivist – “‘Weaponized’ religious exemptions, in turn, weaponize religion (part 1)”

“This weaponized use of religious exemptions has changed the context of the entire conversation that previously shaped our legal and neighborly accommodation of such exemptions. It is no longer about the classic examples of exemptions that are fundamentally defensive in character. This is an effort to use religious exemptions as an offensive weapon for political purposes that have nothing to do with the religious beliefs supposedly in question.

The goal of weaponized religious exemptions is not “to protect a practice or tradition or community” but to carve out privileges and advantages for some groups over others.”
