Not just scaremongering

From an article by Maggie Gallagher over at The widely respected UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh, who favors same-sex marriage, took time out to acknowledge that the religious liberty implications of same-sex marriage are not "scaremongering."

"It seems to me plausible that judicial decisions banning opposite-sex-only marriage rules would likewise come to be extended -- by legislatures or by courts -- to go beyond their literal boundaries (a decision about government discrimination) and instead to justify bans on private discrimination," Volokh wrote. "It seems quite likely that they will spill over into diminishing any constitutional (or Religious Freedom Restoration Act-statutory) claims to engage in such discrimination by private entities, including Boy-Scout-like organizations, churches, religious universities and other institutions."

LOL. Maggie Gallagher is completely out of her mind. Find credible sources!

LOL. Are you suggesting that she is misqoting Volokh . . . or flat out lying? That's brave. What are your sources?

Please let me know if you have contrary facts. I would hate to be quoting something that was never said or written.

As a side note, I could be citing a two year old, but if they are accurately conveying word for word what Volokh said, then in that instance they are a credible source.
