I want a debate on not just the issues, but on solutions which have hisorical evidence to support any claims that they will work. I'm not interested in talking about the specific candidates, although I'm sure different positions advanced will match those of various candidates while opposing the positions of another. My first big idea: I think government should avoid imposing one individual's or group's beliefs upon others in their private lives, and should only enact legislation which prevents those who want to impose negative effects arising from their religious beliefs from having government protection or licensing to do so. So... No religious authorities forced to marry someone they don't wish to. No business licensing, and revocation of existing licensing, for those who discriminate against customers based on their private religious beliefs. The state has an interest in maintiaining equality of treatment for all citizens, and not having any eforcement action (like pulling licenses) would render this proposal worthless, so enforcement must exist and must be used. In this way, a member of the Worldwide Church of the Creator (a white supremacist church) could say whatever they want in their private life, but couldn't run a business which actually discriminated against blacks. And, as has been the case, there will be no requirement that, say, Amish adults would have to work in microchip fabrication, or that sincere Hindus must run a steak packaging system. If they do choose to go into such businesses, it would not be reasonable to expect an accommodation of being able to refuse use of modern technology in the first case, or that they be apble to not work with beef in the second. Similarly, wanting to run a business whoch hires or serves the public, but which which discriminates as a religious belief, rules out a license. Any balanced arguments against this, whh do not nvolve special pleading? What other ideas would you want to see advanced?
