Disclosure can resolve religious liberty issue
There is a workaround for the religious freedom bill quandary. Let the Georgia Legislature pass the religious freedom bill, but include in it the following requirement: Any business that would seek its protection must include the following, prominent notice on their premises and in all advertising: “The products and services offered by this company are not available to all citizens of Georgia. The policy of this company is to discriminate against citizens of Georgia based on the sincerely held religious beliefs of the owners of the company, in furtherance of which the owners of the company invoke the First Amendment and the Georgia religious freedom statute.” The purpose of this notice is to forewarn potential customers so they can decide in advance if they wish to patronize said company. Anyone in favor of religious freedom must also be in favor of truth in advertising.
