Hyperbole on Parade

As I predicted, the Christianists are attacking marriage equality by raising the specter of a country without freedom of religion.

Money quote: ""If you don't care about this campaign, don't want to get involved, you can go to jail and start a wonderful prison ministry," Garlow adds. "But if you want religious freedom, we're going to have to win this thing.""

I don't understand the problem here - the government is not trying to force religions to give spiritual gay marriages, so why are the churches complaining about no religious freedom? I don't get it! This is an entirely secular thing! If the governemtn was trying to force religions to do something, that'd be bad. Just as bad as the religions (currently) trying to force the government to do something. Separation of church and state is supposed to work two ways!
