    In light of the discussions concerning Indiana's law...

    There is a very interesting article in the Cornell Law Review Volume 49 Issue 2 Witer 1964 entitled "Freedom of Choice in Personal Service Occupations Thirteenth Amendment Limitations on Antidiscrimination Legislation".

    Basically the 13th Amendment says that a person can not be forced into involuntary servitude.

    Forcing some to perform a service against their will even if compensated may be argued to be involuntary servitude.

    We are a country of laws and rights.

    Sometimes there are competing rights which calls for the courts to sort out.

    The new law in Indiana is no exception.

    So your point would be that forcing a Christian bakery to serve a homosexual wedding against their will would be involuntary servitude? Sounds good to me.

    I would have to agree.
