Quote for Day: "Bills That Encourage Communities to Rip Apart the Fabric of America Should Be Seen for What They Are: Discriminatory and Deeply Un-American"

Most of us work every day with people about whom we have a sincere belief that their lifestyle, politics, religion, ways of earning a living, or sexual orientation are wrong and ill-informed and go against all that we hold sacred. We run across them driving taxis, doing our taxes, working in restaurants, selling our groceries, policing our neighborhoods, and even running our government. Although we may hold a sincere belief about how wrong they are, we try, as best a we can, to be civil to one another, recognizing that we are living in a diverse country made up of all kinds of people, some of whom we will agree with, and most of whom we will not. 
Bills that encourage communities to rip apart the fabric of America should be seen for what they are: discriminatory and deeply un-American. That is my sincerely held religious belief.

His article is entitled "'Sincerely Held Religious Beliefs' and the Fraying of America."
