When government creates special rights for one group, it inevitably does so at the expense of the natural rights of the majority. Such is the case with gay marriage and a recent judge’s ruling in Colorado that will require the owner of a bakery to serve homosexual couples over his religious objections.
Detroit municipal workers learned Tuesday that promises made by the city and their union leaders that they would have lifetime pensions and healthcare benefits were hollow promises. It’s an ill omen for pensioners across the country.
