In his article, the ex-governor of New Jersey said he prayed for the "expansion of freedom that recognizes the worth and dignity of every individual." In James McGreevey's world view, gays, lesbians and transsexuals have dignity and worth. The enemy of dignity and worth is the Catholic Church and all religious conservatives who believe God created the covenant of marriage to be between a man and a woman.
This "expansion of freedom" would mean public schools would not be allowed to portray marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman. "Hateful" biblical accounts, like the story of Sodom, would be banned from public airwaves. Pastors would face jail time for teaching unapproved portions of the Bible. Religious conservatives would be prevented from becoming foster parents until they renounce their faith, and religious organizations would not be permitted to operate in ways consistent with their religious convictions. I find the tolerance movement most intolerant.
