Freedom of religion means that we all have the freedom to observe whatever religion we wish. That is what has made this country great for all of the time it has been a nation. However, with ignorant displays as this will detail, to Fox News, freedom of religion means freedom for Christians to practice their traditions, not freedom of religion for everybody else, and to them, there is no freedom of religion for people who choose not to believe. This we already know.

Being tolerant doesn’t mean you have to agree. It means that you recognize that other people besides you live here in this country and that your work isn’t to convert the entire country over to your point of view.
