Pardon the "attack" on Christianity in the headline -- but I think that sums up the venomous beliefs of the bullies.
There is no principle here. The zealots are not claiming that we must be tolerant towards all -- that is a principle most could agree with.

And it signals how lost this issue is when not even the defenders of the RFRA can even admit the law's purpose. They seem compelled to pretend this bit about refusing service to gay weddings is just some hypothetical crazy talk.
