Connecticut now allows all citizens to marry. But some are worried:
The Connecticut Catholic Conference today proposed some broad exemptions which it believes are necessary to protect [religious liberty]. The [marriage equality] law does not require Catholic priests -- or any other clergy member -- to preside over same-sex weddings. However, the church is seeking additional exemptions. For instance, it wants to ensure that a florist opposed to gay marriage on religious grounds not be forced to sell flowers to a same-sex couple.
Seriously: it would violate someone's religious liberty to sell and arrange flowers for a gay married couple? And how many florists - florists - are anti-gay?
