The “Slippery Slope” argument is just paranoia

There is no such thing as the “slippery slope”. Thinking that leftists with an agenda will never be satisfied with taking “yes” for an answer is simply paranoia.

I mean, take gay “marriage” for example. It’s plainly clear that the left will be perfectly satisfied and will stop harping on us now that they’ve gotten their way on gay “marriage”. There’s no way that they’ll continue to press and insist that a “right to gay marriage” trumps religious freedom. There’s no possible way that they’d ever advocate punishing religious organizations that insist on maintaining their religious freedom and standards.

Right?

The same argument can and should be applied to gay marriage. If your organization does not support the right of gay men and women to marry, then the government should be very clear that you’re in the wrong. And it should certainly not bend over backwards to give you the privilege of tax exemption.

We have religious freedom in this country, and any religious organization is entirely free to espouse whatever crazy views it likes. But when those views are fanatical and hurtful, they come into conflict with the views of any honorable legislator who believes in freedom and equality. And at that point, it makes perfect sense for our elected representatives to register their disapproval by abolishing the tax exemption for organizations who cling to narrow-minded and anachronistic views.

Care to wager whether the left will be satisfied and stop demanding more after tax exemptions for Christian churches are removed?

Nah…there’s no slippery slope.
