If you thought that was crazy...

did the last post on the anti-RFRA reaction go too far?  Well, check out how unsuspecting small businesses have been dragged into the fray.  Note especially the tweeted (account now suspended) threat of bombing. 

Even a gay-marriage advocate realizes the anti-Hoosier ire is misplaced

Just like Rod Dreher said, "it'll never happen (gay marriage negatively impacting Christians and other groups who oppose marriage equality)...but when it does, they will deserve it."  Merited impossibility.  The current terms of our national debates sprawl far beyond any estimation of propriety or effectiveness.  We are meddling with powers the extent of which we cannot--and, importantly, will not--comprehend.  The all-too-avoidable-but-unfulfilling aftermath will only fuel more recrimination and pursuit of revenge.  Meanwhile, all sorts of the innocent are injured...basically for sport.  As Lent ends tonight we need to remember a little humility:
