A Defining Difference

“At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life.”

~ Justice Anthony Kennedy

Those lofty words sound quite wonderful. Unless, of course, you disagree with the popular wisdom of the day. Then it becomes a question of whose "concept of existence" is politically correct.

In writing our founding document, Thomas Jefferson defined truth as "self-evident." Good luck with that definition in today's hysterical political climate. A small wedding-related business, in fact any organization whose "concept of existence" includes the belief that marriage is between one man and one woman is in for some rough going.

"At the heart of liberty" are "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God." Not "one's own concept of existence."
