Senator Rand Paul was on The Daily Show where he and Jon Stewart talked about the argument for religious freedom and how people are trying to get around marriage equality by arguing that corporations are people and have religious liberties. Senator Paul's point is that he believes religious freedoms are being attacked by the government and he illustrated his point by telling a story of a Christian company in Kentucky. “They chose not to make shirts that support gay marriage. The thing is that does sound a little bit like a freedom issue. And you could go down the street and get somebody else to make it.” Stewart rebuttled that point by saying, “The only thing I would say is, don't they sell cakes to sinners all the time. Adulterers. When you com in and say ‘I'd like a cake,’ do they say 'Do you use the name of the lord in vain?'” This led the conversation back to whether or not these religious freedom arguments can be made by corporations claiming to be people, with Paul saying, “That's exactly the question of the Patriot Act… Whether or not a warrant that has a corporations name on it, Verizon, can collect all the records of all the people, whether a corporation is a person. So we're right back to the Patriot Act and I think we agree now.” After toasting their coffee mugs to this revelation, Stewart commented, “This is going to keep me awake tonight. I'm going to be sitting around going 'Wait a minute!'”
