From a piece I wrote for the Morning Call:
Pennsylvania was one of a growing number of states to have laws on same-sex marriage overturned by unelected judges. These judicial dictates are trumping the democratic process. The decisions lack our consent and often conflict with the will and expressed beliefs of the majority of U.S. citizens.
Even worse, throughout the United States, people of conscience increasingly find themselves at risk of being fined or taken to court for refusing to be silent or to accommodate legal gray areas — such as bakers and photographers who based on religious principles decline to accommodate or participate in weddings of same-sex couples — created by these rulings.
