Ah, no, that's not quite right.

But wait, then that would mean that YOU can't bitch about Buddhism or Hinduism or anything else anymore, right? Hmm, maybe this will work after all.

No it doesn't.

It means that you are free to be whatever religion you want and no-one can stop you, you smarmy fuck. It doesn't mean that you are immune to criticism or mockery. Try telling me that we aren't allowed to "attack" or "offend" Mormons and Scientologists with a straight face and maybe we'll talk.

Freedom of speech, on the other hand, gives us every right to malign, offend or otherwise be critical of horse crap. Which is what all religion comes down to.

I think you need to read up on freedom of religion. Nobody has the right to not be offended.

Do you mean that you would never ever attack, malign or grossly offend any faith you are not a member of? Like Satanism, Wicca, Aesir, Islam, etc.

Where did you get your law degree?

Watch this:

Your religion is a crazy, stupid, guilt-driven Ponzi scheme.

Looky everybody I'm still free!

And that is why we don't allow fuckwits like you in office:

(Oh wait, the Lords Spiritual. Oh, my fucking mistake.)

You are too ignorant to realise that we are all equal before the law. What applies to us applies to you. The laws that give US the freedom to denigrate YOUR beliefs CUT BOTH WAYS, and give YOU the freedom to denigrate OUR beliefs.

Without these laws, HOLY BOOKS are illegal, technically. Every time you campaign for particular laws to protect yourselves, there will eventually be a court case that brings the law back to bite you on the arse. See the controversy over the Racial and Religious Hatred Act.

In that case, your lot owes the Mormon Church, the Native spiritual leaders and a host of others a GREAT BIG apology

Swing and a miss.

You've never had the right or privilege to operate without Criticism. And it pisses you off to no end, too damn bad. Your religion has a history of being all of the worst mankind can offer.

nope, it means the government can't make laws promoting one religion over others.

It actually means NO DISCRIMINATION. You can get up and blaspheme any religion all you want. It also protects irreligious people from discrimination as well.

I sure wish you fundies would respect this freedom of religion.
