Orthodox Jews for Religious Freedom - Oy vey

Proof that we Jews can be just as idiotic as conservative Christians:
Imagine a kosher caterer that is sued for refusing to serve at a wedding on the Sabbath or a wedding hall owner who is sued for refusing to rent the premises for an interfaith wedding. Many people interpret Jewish tradition as allowing these activities. But the government should never serve in the Archie Bunker role, telling people what their religion allows and forbids. No Jew, no American, should be forced to violate his deeply held religious convictions.
Everyone wants a piece of the victim cake. No the caterer cannot be sued for not providing service on days when the business is closed. That banquet hall owner, on the other hand, might be required to host an interfaith wedding if it is open to the general public. Why the hell not?
