Madison University "Students" Stumped By Insanely Simple and Obvious Hypothetical

A new law proposed in Madison would strip away all rights of creative professionals (singers, photographers, bakers-- whatever) to refuse to serve a client based on political or religious disagreement.

This is obviously stupid and authoritarian.

"Alliance Defending Freedom," an advocacy group for conscience rights, asks some students if they support a dress designer's right to refuse to dress Melania Trump, or of the right of a Muslim singer to refuse a Christian Church's request to sing at an Easter mass.

Of course they immediately agree that these creative professionals have that right, and must have that right, because -- Because Of Course. What other way could it possibly be?

Then they're asked if a Christian photographer should have the right to refuse to take photos at a gay wedding.

That's where things get a bit stumpy and stammerey.
