I believe I said 'serious can of worms' :)

The article states that the "Freedom of Conscience" act could "open a can of worms."  This is a ludicrous understatement.  What it could do is cause multiple fractures of our society along religious lines, with everyone discriminating against everyone else according to each person's own "conscience."  Rather than being joined together by our commonalities, societies would be split by their differences.  Carried to its logical conclusion, the results are positively frightening to contemplate.

Whoever passed this law should have their head examined ... presuming there are any substantial CONTENTS to examine!
