Goose, meet Gander

Some activists might want to consider the secondary and tertiary effects of their crusades. It would appear that I could refuse to serve Christians under a GOP proposed bill in New Hampshire.

The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing Tuesday on the bill that allows the practice if a business owner, an employee or anyone else felt providing the services related to a marriage or its celebration would violate his or her conscience or religious faith. The bill also would bar lawsuits against people denying services to the couples. 
Supporters touted the bill as a balance between freedom of religion and sexual orientation while opponents called it "codified discrimination." 
New Hampshire's gay marriage law already exempts churches and religious groups from being forced to officiate gay marriages or provide services to participants.
