William Saletan // Gay marriage and religious freedom: Don’t stereotype the Christian wedding photographer as a bigot

Count  as yet another gay marriage advocate who opposes criminalizing the right to refuse service. I’m not a gay marriage advocate and am only highlighting what I find to be a growing number of folks in that camp who yet oppose the zeal from some advocates to prosecute Christians. Here’s an excerpt from a recent column for Slate:

But maybe the rest of us need to broaden our experience, too. Maybe we need to talk to people who accept homosexuality as an orientation but believe marriage should be reserved for couples capable of procreation, at least in theory. Or maybe we just need to take the self-description of a Christian photographer as seriously as we would take the self-description of a gay friend.
