Do Religious Liberty Laws Give Christians a Right to Feed the Hungry, Even When It Is Against the Law?
The new religious liberty laws in the South allow people to deny service to others on the basis of the server's religious beliefs.
The laws were written so that, to take a real example, a Christian baker could refuse to make a cake for a gay wedding.
In some of the same states, laws have been passed to prevent Christians from feeding the homeless in public places.
I wonder if these religious liberty laws would also allow people to claim a legal right to serve people on the basis of the server's religious beliefs?
