We stood in line to show support of one of America’s great businesses, and to support that pesky little document called the Constitution — and the pesky little part of that document called the First Amendment. And the free-exercise clause. And the free-association clause, too.

We stood in line because we think it is wrong — no, unconstitutional — for government officials to use their coercive power to regulate free speech, and in support of the right for all of us to practice our faith — or have no faith — openly. Or even to think a thought the government doesn’t like.

We stood in line because we hate bullies, and we hate them whoever the victim is.
