Here are some things the “Founding Fathers” thought, since we keep having this dialogue about religious freedom based on what these dudes intended:
Founding Fathers–Hey, it’s totally okay for white humans to own black humans!
Founding Fathers–Hey, it’s totally fine for male humans to own all the property and have all the rights and for female humans to stay at home and raise babies.
Founding Fathers–HEY IT’S ABSOLUTELY OKAY FOR YOU TO KILL YOUR BLACK SLAVES IF THEY RUN AWAY FROM YOU.
These dudes were not exactly paragons of modern virtue.
Let’s get that clear right now.
Look, folks. Once and for all. Religious freedom means that the government does not have the right to impose a religion on you.
It doesn’t mean that YOU have right to expect everyone else to follow your religious laws or that you can refuse service to me in the public sector based on your religious beliefs. We do not live in a theocracy. I don’t care what you think your holy book says about my body, my sexuality, my place in the world.
