VIDEO from RFRA panel discussion

Here are my snippets:

Here is the full length video discussion:

ACLU RFRA full version from John Hollowell on Vimeo.

Some thoughts:

1)  Oddly, the person who I would describe as most attacking toward the Catholic position was the other person representing "Christianity".  I don't recall the fellow's name nor denomination, but he was the one who voiced the generic things like "God is compassion" "we have same sex marriage at our Church" "The Bible says to welcome everyone" etc.  

2)  There were 5 panelists.  I was the only for the original RFRA.  If you want to paint the picture that RFRA was a bad idea, then I would set the panel up the way it was set up.  A few legal people, a few government people, a christian against RFRA and then have a celibate Catholic priest be the only one for RFRA, that way even if he makes good points, well, he's one of those priest types.
