Prior to Medved's comment, Alexander McCobin, president and co-founder of Students for Liberty, a libertarian group, said that the religious liberty that had historically been repressed had been "the liberty of those religious institutions and practices that support same-sex marriage."

"The government has prevented them from engaging in the religious practice that they want," he said.

To be clear: 30 states have banned same-sex marriage in their state constitution, usually by legally defining marriage as between a man and a woman, according to the Human Rights Campaign.
