  1. "Why Are Secular Businesses Claiming Religious Rights?"

    Because it works. Employees discovered that by whining about their "religious beliefs" they could get out of doing their jobs without suffering the consequences. So why not take it further and claim that employers should be allowed to disobey any law they want in the name of their "religious beliefs"? It's getting to the point that "religious beliefs" are the ultimate get-out-of-anything-free card.

    1. Buffy -- Spot-on, as always. I'm tired of people and groups using religious beliefs as an excuse for unethical professional behavior.

  2. Right on to Crooks and Liars for calling out Mitt Romney on coupling his tithing with his taxes. Also for calling out the LDS Church for its paltry charitable efforts. Couldn't have said it better. :)

    1. Donna -- The more information on Romney and the LDS that comes to light, the better.
