Dan Conkle says that his students consider non-marital
cohabitation to be a "human right." I'm sure they do. And, like the
California Supreme Court, they are also correct that Mrs. Smith can go
out of business (and when her savings runs out, I'm sure her children
will be entitled to AFDC payments).
Also, Mrs. Smith's religion doesn't require her to live in
California--she is free to move to a state with more tolerant property
The Zeitgeist has an expansive view of sexual license and a cramped
view of religious freedom. Oh, well. This too shall pass.
At least when Mrs. Smith ends up in jail for counter-revolutionary
activities, she will be able to get a Free Ex exemption from KP duty. A
silver lining in a very dark storm cloud!
