Atheist billboards and bus signs are spreading like a wildfire across North America so I suppose it’s about time some Christian said something so intensely stupid you just know they haven’t given two seconds of thought to what they said.
The Christian I write about is Bryan Fischer, executive director of Idaho Values Alliance, who issued a statement about the FFRF’s “Beware of Dogma” billboard going up in Boise, Idaho.
Here’s the stupid thing he said:
“The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.”
The truth of the matter is that you can’t have freedom of religion without freedom from religion. No one, including Fischer, can practice their religion of choice if they are not free from other religions.
Think about it for a moment. Would a Christian woman have freedom of religion if she was not free to run around bareheaded? Would Jews have freedom of religion if they were required to show up for Mass? Would a Muslim have freedom of religion if he was required to eat pork?
Of course not.
