The "slippery slope" is often (rightly) cast as delusional, in this case, its accurate-
Here's where the false idea that the Constitution grants rights goes right to hell - when its cast as 'government can assign rights'
Appears they are... giving rights to one party at the expense of the rights of others IS NOT CONSTITUTIONAL.
There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in the US Constitution (or the WA Constitution for that matter) that :
1.) grants rights
2.) grants rights to one group at the expense of others rights
WHAT DOES THE WORD "CONSTITUTION" MEAN? IT MEANS THE MAKEUP AND FORMATION OF GOVERNMENT - AND THAT GOVT SHALL NOT INFRINGE.
There's nothing wrong with Target "reassigning" Muslim workers because clear (and clearly stated, previously evidenced) religious beliefs, its called "reasonable accomodation" and they are required, BY LAW, to do so where it does not cause material harm to the business operation.
But, thats not the point. Thats PRIVATE. That has no effect on the Customer.
Where the 'slippery slope' is crossed - the threshold of disaster is reached, is when Government, which is controlled under EEO laws (and employers who are controlled, or are supposed to be under incorporation laws) are forbidden from discriminating based on race, gender, ethnicity...tries to CONTROL CITIZENS WITH IT.
Where that WENT wrong (not going, but WENT) is when people started accepting such conditions they observe at WORK, as an Employee, in their lives as Private Citizens, WHERE IT HAS NO HOLD.
Slippery slope - laws on rentals. Illegal to rent based on ethnic discrimination. Illegal to do business with ones own property with whomever you do or dont want to deal with??
WHAT HAPPENED TO PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS?
