Mullarkey - a voice of SANITY on RFRA

Maureen Mullarkey, "RFRA & My Wedding Ring" (First Things, April 7, 2015):

She and her soon-to-be husband, two Gentiles, were shopping for wedding rings and wanted those well-known words from the Book of Ruth inscribed on her ring. But the old jeweler, his forearm tattooed with his identification number from a concentration camp, said he was sorry but couldn't given them that particular inscription. How did they respond, and what does it tell us, not only about them, but about us today?
