Rights are for me, but not for thee, says just about the entirety of LGBT activists groups.
Attacking religious liberty rights will be the singular issue of the LGBT left (which is to say, the LGBT political movement) going forward. The bogus “license to discriminate” meme will be ubiquitous.

As I’ve said before, balancing competing rights—civil rights (public accommodations nondiscrimination) and religious liberty (the right not to be forced by the state, on threat of punishment, to take action that violates religious convictions)—is what America should be about.
Religious exemptions have a traditional and purposeful place in our civil rights laws, but that’s now under attack. Shameful and sad.
More. Proving my point: Swift LGBT opposition to Gorsuch over ‘religious freedom’ rulings:
Gorsuch also sided with “religious freedom” arguments over the Affordable Care Act’s mandate that employers provide contraception coverage in the 10th Circuit ruling in the case of Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged v. Burwell.
Rachel Tiven, CEO of Lambda Legal, declared opposition to the nominee based on Gorsuch’s “religious freedom” rulings, which she said marks the first time her organization opposed a Supreme Court nominee without any confirmation hearing.
Lambda Legal is going to show those nuns who’s boss.
