Upon reading several recent letters I feel compelled to defend the idea of freedom FROM religion, as it is a crucial component of freedom OF religion. No one drives past a church and feels 'offended' and decides that churches are an affront to his freedom from religion. Churches are part of freedom of religion.
What everyone does believe is that s/he has the right
to not have someone else's religion imposed upon him/her. Whatever it
is. Because s/he has his/her own. You can't have freedom of religion if
I'm constantly trying to impose MINE on you.
Does that help?
