CO state senator tells Christers who want exemptions from gay equality laws to get themselves to a nunnery

Eric W. Dolan reports that the National Organization for Marriage is going after Colorado state senator Pat Steadman after he told Christers that religion isn't a sufficient pass for antigay discrimination and that those who claim religion requires them to discriminate should get themselves to a nunnery.

“And live there then. Go live a monastic life away from modern society, away from people you can’t see as equals to yourself. Away from the stream of commerce where you may have to serve them or employ them or rent banquet halls to them.”

“Go some place and be as judgmental as you like. Go inside your church, establish separate water fountains in there if you want, but don’t claim that free exercise of religion requires the state of Colorado to establish separate water fountains for her citizens. That’s not what we’re doing here.”
Steadman introduced the Colorado Civil Unions Act on February 8th.
