Freedom of association means I support the right for an atheist based health Co-Op insurance plan to exclude people that live a lifestyle based on religious values.
On the flip side, I also support a religious based health Co-Op insurance plan to exclude people that don’t follow their values. That could be Jewish, Muslim, Christian, or any other religion that chooses to establish their own plan.
Freedom means not forcing people to live by values that they do not share. We shouldn’t be forced to fit square pegs into round holes when it comes to something as important as insurance. Currently, we are led by a government that believes in a one size fits all solution, which is an obvious failure that does not truly accept or represent the diversity we have in this county.
True acceptance means allowing others to live their life as they see fit, even if you disagree.
