Side: Yes.

As long it doesn't harm anyone, then yes, everyone should be able to believe in what they want. Even though a world without religion would be better, not letting people have their own beliefs would be against free speech.

Side: Yes.

I'm all for religious liberty ... as long as I can have MINE also. Keep your religious liberty within your religion (whatever it is), follow the REST of the Constitution and nobody would have a problem here in the U.S.. Outside of the U.S., though, there would STILL be religious problems. The controllers MUST try to get control and work to get their "true god" as the ONLY god (whichever it is), as they have for centuries. I agree, we would be better without religions. If only the "coexist" movement could catch on, but, centuries have proven the religious would rather fight.

Side: Yes.

Does it harm a child to brainwash them agsinst their own gender? And is it not the same logic, using some made up belief to make your child think this way, and not by letting them choose their beliefs?

Well Bronto, brainwashing is what you Christians do best... ;-)

But seriously, I don't support brainwashing children. If I ever have children, I will let them believe in what they want. And that's why I voted yes.

Side: Yes.

So that our opinions, actions and thoughts aren't changed/corrupted by superstition and blind faith. This is no offense to Christians or any other supporters of religion. But without religion, we wouldn't have done the Crusades, millions of people would have been spared from religiously incited genocide and war, and science and technology would be much further ahead than it is now. Religion has caused some good things, but this isn't much compared to the destruction and death that has been done in the name of god.

Side: Yes.

Stop being a bigot by lumping in Christianity with the likes of war loving Islam. The world would be a much better place if people were all Christians, but that will never happen so for a time we are left with false hate filled religions causing so many wars, as well as the immoral Godless ruining so many lives.

Now be a moron and talk about the crusades or other things thousands of years ago.

Side: No.

Haha bro, there's nothing wrong with what he said. He believe letting people believe what they want is just right, he respect that you believe in Christianity and he don't force anyone to believe the same thing as him and bro, what do you call to your speech? Filled with love now that you called him bigot and a moron? Christianity can also be the reason why people hate non-Christians you know

Side: Yes.

Would it be better? Social Darwinism was the foundation for the 3 worst mass slaughters in human history.

Religious liberty must be fought for. No one is given a right for free when another force eXists that believes that Your right is not important.

Rights are what wars are about. And taking others rights are also.

Side: Yes.

In the US, yes, but in other countries, like Iran and other Sharia Law compliant nations, no.

Side: Yes.

Have you ever been to Iran? Because I have. Nearly everyone I met there was an atheist. I have never seen a person persecuted for not being a Muslim. My girlfriend is from Tehran, she's an atheist. She doesn't observe Ramadan (she eats at home during that month); she doesn't pray; she doesn't go to Mosque. She has been married, and divorced. We are not married, but we hold hands in public. We have been able to buy books that criticise religion. She is the deputy-manager of a hotel and gives orders to men. Women can vote; women can own property; women can be in public without a male chaperone. And more crucially: women can walk home at night and by and large do so in considerably more safety than in the States or Arab nations.

Iranians are not Wahhabis, Salafis, or jihadists. None of the 9/11 hijackers were Iranian. They are not Sunni Muslims like the Arabs, they are mostly Shi'ia.

Iranians are against ISIS and against the Taliban and against Al Qaeda and against fundamentalism and against strict Sharia law. The most recent terrorist attack in Iran was carried out by ISIS, against Iranian civilians.

The second largest religion in Iran after Islam is Christianity. Christianity, Judaism and Zoroastrianism are protected by law in Iran.

They have healthcare comparable to Western countries; they have one of the fastest growing economies in the world; and they are home to various international, American based businesses.

Persians are NOT the same as Arabs. Their cultures and attitudes are vastly different.

Side: No.

Depends on who you ask.

Legally, in most developed countries, religious liberty is an established right. In my personal opinion, religious liberty OUGHT to be an established right everywhere, because I personally feel religious liberty constitutes one of the moral rights of mankind.

That said, I'm not religious, and I am in fact an anti-theist. That is also MY right. And may the privileges of free-society allow us to determine which ideology -- religion or irreligion -- stands up to the scrutiny of debate.

Side: Yes.

Not inherently, no. It is a right only insofar as it is recognized by those who have the power to enforce the principle of the thing, and usually that means it is done with variable inequity.

Side: No.

So why is it you Progressives protect the Muslims and the Religion of Islam ! Come on Dummy and if you say you don't you are a Liar

Yes it is a right. This is my life, and I have the right to serve any God I want, and I choose Yeshua. I find it hypocritical when you atheists deny religious liberty being a right then you turn around and force your atheism on Christians and other religious people. Hypocrite.

Side: Yes.

Kneejerk harder why don't you? I'm not an atheist, and I'm quite indifferent to what anyone else believes. Observing that 'rights' are merely an expression of preference backed by power does not mean I have any interest in denying those 'rights' to anyone.

Side: No.
