Freedom From Religion

Freedom of religion includes freedom from religion. It is one thing to let people freely indulge their religious delusions, even when they are harmful to the believers (e.g. Spanish Catholics flagellating themselves causing infected wounds). It is quite another to let yourself be bullied into inconveniencing yourself to humour somebody else’s religious delusions. I include such things as being forced to close shops on Sunday, accepting second class citizenship if you are gay, public money being spent on decorations a religious festival to celebrate a bogus claim of human parthenogenesis and having your children taught blithering nonsense in schools about science, allowing cults to wed pre-pubescent girls off to senior citizens and allowing Catholic church to run the world’s largest pedophile ring, without interference.
