“Many have commented on the fact
that Davis herself has been divorced several times. As a strategic
matter, this makes her a rather poor poster child for ‘traditional
Christian marriage’: Jesus himself treats divorce and remarriage as akin
to adultery. But the point is not merely ad hominem: Davis’s
willingness to impose a standard of marriage on gays that she does not
apply to others, herself included, shows that she’s less interested in
enforcing a consistent traditional Christian view than in singling out
gays for disapproval. In its Obergefell decision, the U.S.
Supreme Court rightly rejected such treatment as an affront to dignity
and equal treatment under the law. Private citizens are free to express
their religious views about homosexuality — however hypocritically and
inconsistently — and to practice their faith as they see fit. But
religious liberty is not a “get out of your job free” card.” – Wayne
University professor John Corvino, writing for the Detroit Free Press.
