AFA President: Freedom of religion only applies to Christians
The president of the American Family Association has claimed that freedom of religion only apply to Christians.
The president of the anti-gay group, Bryan Fischer, said: “I have contended for years that the First Amendment, as given by the Founders, provides religious liberty protections for Christianity only.
“Most attorney types, befuddled by years of untethered Supreme Court activism, think it covers any and all religions you can name.
“The results of this expansive but badly misguided understanding of the First Amendment have not been too costly to this point.
“But with Islam growing in America like a noxious weed, some of the more troublesome aspects of this distorted view of religious liberty are becoming evident, when it comes to things like school curricula, halal food, and Christian evangelism at Muslim street fairs.
“These problems have been brought into stark relief now by Satanists, who are pressing for exactly the same kind of religious liberty protections the Supreme Court just recognized for Hobby Lobby.”
