Discrimination Is Not a Religious Value

As a Christian priest and pastor, I’ve just finished the holiest week of our church year — a week that included the reminder that the “new commandment” Jesus gave his followers the night before he died was “love one another.”

And you most certainly do not love one another by passing legislation that misuses religion as an excuse to discriminate against one another.

So for this week after Easter, here’s my new commandment:

Thou shalt not confuse the freedom to exercise your religion with the freedom to impose your religion on other people.
