Look closely, all of you individual freedom lovers
This photo from the Idaho Statesman should be posted on the door of every office housing a politician actively opposed to same sex marriage (Gov. Kasich, Atty. Gen. DeWine, for starters.) This gay woman has been devastated by an irrational rejection of the request for a marriage license, the victim of one group's religion over another - or none - in the land of the free. Not a poster for the freedoms that social conservatives say they want to preserve.
