In one tweet, @JuddLegum managed to take a giant shit on both the Civil Right struggle and Religious Freedom. #TakeABow

Lunacy from Think Progress’ Editor in Chief Judd Legum? Say it ain’t so!

First, some background:

Two Christian ministers who own an Idaho wedding chapel were told they had to either perform same-sex weddings or face jail time and up to $1,000 in fines, according to a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court.

Some have a problem with the government forcing Christian ministers to marry same-sex couples:

I support same sex marriage. I also find it deeply troubling that a government would force a minister to perform one. http://t.co/5dFbphLMlD

Judd Legum said Christian ministers who refuse to perform same-sex weddings was totes the same as something else:

@radleybalko Do you find it similarly troubling that the gov't would force a restaurant to serve black people?

Default argument: Because racism! Except different, but not really.

Counter-productivity, they name is Legum:

.@JohnEkdahl If anything could make me rethink my support for SSM, it'd be liberal fanatics eager to burn out all differences of opinion.

@moelane @JohnEkdahl They've made no secret of their desire to accomplish that very thing.

.@moelane Agree. I've always supported SSM, but I don't like the authoritarian streak of some progressives. Hurts their cause. @JohnEkdahl

Try as you might, @JuddLegum, you will never turn a consensual sex act into a skin color. @radleybalko

.@RBPundit Hey, .@JuddLegum, should a lesbian caterer was forced to cater a wedding reception at the Westboro Baptist Church if they ask?

Why don't people who support SSM just go out and get a license to be able to perform weddings to whoever they want? No money in it?

It's weird. The only "choice" Leftists are okay with is one that involves killing a baby in the womb. h/t @pornpops69
