The Gay Rights Argument from the Religous Angle

Julian Sanchez decimates the main argument put forth by the religious right:

"Religious believers in the armed forces are also, of course, “forced” to “accept” serving alongside Muslims, Hindus, atheists, Jews, and a whole welter of other religious denominations."

The argument that religious conservatives shouldn't be compelled to accept the rights of those who engage in practices they deem immoral or un-Biblical was conceded the moment they acknowledged the right of Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and other religious minorities to live in accordance with their own beliefs.
