    I’m glad you posted this, I was wondering this very thing.

    Although there does seem to be other big difference between the two cases; In HL, the case stems over employee benefits, here, over a contractual agreement. I’ve been reading through the Balkanization posts; and I still think there’s an Establishment Clause burden on the employees under Caldor.Report

    My own jaundiced view. Yes gays are within their legal rights to go after religious business owners for refusing to serve their events. That said, unless there are no other businesses of that type in the area I think it’s a really really REALLY bad idea to do so on political and culture war grounds.

    Now extralegal actions like boycotts and scathing reviews etc? I think that’s perfectly fine.Report
