Freedom of Religion and Christian Totalitarianism
I was talking to a hard-core Christian family, and they were talking a lot about religious freedom. Then I asked them about other religions, and they said that they can't afford to tolerate other religions because other religions are against Christianity.
Uh-oh. So you appropriate religious freedom for yourselves, then you fail to extend religious freedom to other people.
What this means is that these people are abusing the freedom of religion clause present in democratic governments to impose a religious totalitarianism. They avail themselves of the freedom of religion that's present in democratic covenants; then they attack everyone else's right to a freedom of religion. What we are seeing therefore is a ploy to subvert constitutional democracy and impose a Christian totalitarianism.
People deserve to know about this, and they deserve to do what the situation requires. And that is: Preserve constitutional democracy and avert Western countries going the way of medieval Europe or contemporary Iran.
When aggressive Christians go around talking about the freedom of religion, they only mean their own freedom of religion, and they are dead-set against anyone else's. Which means that they are abusing the freedom of religion clause in democracy and seek to impose Christian totalitarianism.
