Think of it this way. If a cult becomes a threat to people and preys on the psychologically vulnerable then it no longer is their right to do so because they are infringing on those that the government should protect via the law.

This is why Scientology is illegal in many European nations and UK was one of the first to hardline outlaw it.

As long as your religion isn't going too far, sure you have religious liberty but it's not an inherent right of any kind to bring others in and convince them to hand you money in the name of said religion, especially if you being a religious organisation gives you tax breaks.

Side: No.

Red herring. This debate is about religious liberty, not cults. I as a Christian have the right to live as a Christian. I have the right to religious liberty. :)

Side: Yes.

I'm curious, how do you stop them becoming terrorists in the name of it? Would you not want to outlaw certain forms of religion and the preachings of it in that manner?

Side: No.

Religious liberty is a fantasy belonging in the pages of one of The Brothers Grimms' fairy tales.

Where does religious freedom exist?

Try practising Judaism in Palestine or any of the Muslim states for that matter.

Try going to a Protestant gospel meeting on the Falls Road in Belfast, or going to celebrate a Roman Catholic Mass Service on the Shankill Road, Belfast.

Try to establish any kind of religious faith in North Korea.

All freedoms have to be earned by building a society in which all freedoms can be openly expressed safely.

These is no country on earth where these basic human rights rights exist.

Side: No.
