No Religious Freedom in Wisconsin?

Apparently Indiana and 19 other States have religious freedom, and 13 more are considering same.

Not Wisconsin.

Curious, eh?

Georgia's legislature is still in session, but as of yesterday it looks like our religious freedom bill won't survive. It was tabled after a successful poison pill amendment was added by the House Judiciary committee. There's still a chance to save it, but it's a longshot.

Which is fun because, although free exercise is formally encoded in our constitution for state employees, private citizens are not protected by Georgia state law. That is, there's a constitutional provision forbidding religious tests for public office, but there's nothing similar to protect you as a private citizen from being punished for religious free expression.

I'm a bit late to this party, but RFRA-type protections are a matter of "settled" case law, courtesy Justices Abrahmson and Bradley.

Then again, when has that (or anything else, including statutes and constitutions) stopped the lieberals?
