Best quote yet on being jailed for religious beliefs

Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul should stop pandering to opponents of marriage equality long enough to think about this.

The best, most succinct statement yet is this tweet from Rachel Held Evans.   Thanks to my daughter Barbara for passing it along:
"No one's being jailed for practicing her religion.   Someone's being jailed for using the government to force others to practice her religion."
And the corollary for them to ponder is this:   What if the clerk were a Buddhist, who refused to issue gun permits, because it was against his religion to kill?
