Another bloggin’ Andy points to this editorial in the Star Tribune:
What Americans can learn from Martin’s transformation, and that of many Canadians, is that religious freedom and a minority’s right to equality can go hand in hand under the Constitution just as they now do under Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. No religious entity is compelled to marry a same-sex couple in Canada. This law is about civil marriage. What various religious entities do is entirely up to them. Canada is therefore free to protect the minority rights of gays and lesbians, and religions are free to marry or not to marry as their faiths dictate. These are two separate issues."
