TO THE TIP OF ONE'S NOSE
In Civics classes, in elementary school, we were taught that one's rights extended only to the tip of our respective noses. Our rights could not interefere or impinge on the rights of others. Recently, we are being told that the right to religious freedom trumps the rights of others. A person, who does business under a Government license, in a Government zoned area, that depends on Government paved streets and communal transportation to bring customers and supplies to his or her business, has the right to prevent public access to certain individuals, on religious grounds. We feel that to do so extends their rights well beyond the intended target and puts one's nose into areas it shouldn't be in.
