Bad Barr

Freedom of association is a libertarian principle. (Context)

If the Saddleback debate had been a government sanctioned / funded debate (and as neither McCain nor Obama are yet the official nominees for their repsective parties, I don't see how it could be), that would be somewhat understandable for Barr to sue for inclusion. But my understanding of the Saddleback debate was it was put on by the church, which makes it a whole 'nother ball of wax. And in fact attempting if Barr had been successful, it would've violated the First Amendment (no law respecting an establishment of religion).

I fear he's veering into Badnarik "Constitutional is whatever I think is good" land.
