Christian Legal Society (3)

The Supreme Court's decision in this case bothers me. The distinction between the "carrot of subsidy" and the "stick of prohibition" strikes me as arbitrary, just too convenient, and counter to the precedent prohibiting the government from buying up individual rights -- precedent that I have used in advocating for LGBT protesters. Progressives who cheer the decision should consider the consequences for their own rights of speech and association.
