This 'religious freedom' case involving the pizza parlour business raises another unrelated point about economic views commonly held by conservatives. It's so interesting that conservatives who support the free market have utterly abandoned this ideal in this case. In a true free market, self-described by those who support one, the protesters and boycotts would have been permitted and this business would have went bankrupt permanently ('letting the market do its job'). Instead, a subsidy of over $800,000 has been provided and allowed the business to remain operational (or at least soon to return), distorting the supply and demand balance that supporters of a free market cherish. It seems when their ideals are compromised, namely religious beliefs, their support of the market erodes to the point of supporting unfair subsidies at the expense of competitors and all in opposition to the demands of the market.
