The Ring Revisited

I'm not sure demanding a refund on custom-made wedding rings you ordered because 'they're tainted' by the jeweler's support of traditional marriage is a good look. The public at large (many of whom don't care about 'marriage equality' one way or the other) don't reward bullying behavior, even if courts do.

Sending in the social justice/social media horde to threaten the jeweler for his beliefs WHEN HE DID THE WORK REGARDLESS OF HOW HE FELT is going to backfire in the arena of public opinion.

I remember talking about religious liberty with gay marriage advocates in the past few years. 'Nobody is suing bakeries!' they said. 'Nobody is suing caterers!' they said. People like me were accused of hyperbole and operating in hypotheticals.

And I said at the time that a lot of people would be fine with accepting gay marriage as a thing if they weren't forced to endorse it. Those are different things. I don't have to endorse something to tolerate it. And this couple (Blame Canada) is hastening the 'Endorse Us or Face the Consequences' mindset into the public sphere.

+JD b  asks the simplest and most important question - how would this play out if the situation was reversed?

I'm telling you, it's easy for gay marriage opponents to talk about this with an appeal to fairness, and the middle/undecided/apolitical voters are going to think this is several bridges too far. Gay marriage advocates need to address this kind of overreach, and traditional marriage advocates need to talk about this case intelligently and with the proper focus.

It's not a good look. It's the behavior of spoiled, overly entitled princesses, toward those who don't measure up to their standards. They haven't changed their heart, just the symbols of their exclusivity and superiority.

In which we establish that people don't play when it comes to waffles.

A Mason County Sheriff's Office deputy stood by as 30 people were ordered by the property manager to pack their bags and leave the America's Best Value Inn , 5095 U.S. 10, in Pere Marquette Township. Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole said it all started over the hotel's waffle maker around 9 a.m. on Sunday, May 24.

Waffles are serious business.... I wonder if there will now be a five day waiting period on buying waffle makers?

Forced 'Charity'

Don't we all complain about huge government bureaucracies that so often make things worse? Isn't that a central tenet of smaller government types? The belief that the private sector is better at coming up with creative solutions than government?

Then how in the blue blazes do folks get behind coerced 'charity' in the form of forcing grocery stores to donate unsold food, as France has begun to do?

Couldn't this same thing be accomplished by a badge or certification from, say, a group of charities or nonprofits that says 'This store is awarded a Good Neighbor membership because it is verified to donate unsold food to the hungry' or something similar? And wouldn't that do the same thing with a lot less control and expense involved?

Remember, Social Security started as 'a good idea that will help people'. FORCE.

The federal welfare system started as 'a good idea that will help people'. FORCE.

We have hindsight NOW into how destructive and counterproductive those systems are. Don't you think at the time of their implementation, people with the same doubts then as you have now were raising the same objections? And don't you think they were also drowned out by the feel-good chorus at the time, the one that stressed all the 'good' that would be done and downplayed all the potentially negative consequences?

It doesn't matter whether it sounds as good and wonderful and positive as 'putting unsold food to good use' - if government has to make it happen, you can be nearly certain it will go wrong, or be done in a much less efficient way than the private sector.

Thanks to Paul Gordon Collier for sharing the original image and superbly articulating the many problems with the idea.

I always thought that if you get outraged about what happens in a work of fiction...then maybe your grasp on reality is kinda loose
