Religious liberty, everyone:



I am all for freedom of religion. But I do believe that there is such a thing as harmful schools of thought, and that these beliefs are especially dangerous when combined with the emotional instability of group mentality. If people want to believe in this sort of stuff, that's fine, but there comes a point when it is necessary for others to publicly question and criticize belief systems that would happily restrict the rights and liberties of others in the interest of their own comfort.

It is fine to support religious liberty. But when you say that you support unlimited, unquestioning freedom of religious expression for everyone across the board, you must keep in mind that you are also fighting for the interests of people like this.
