    Yes. I believe it's the government's duty to protect everyone's rights. The debate involves just what these rights are and where one's rights end and another's begin. As I said above, everyone has the right to worship as they please as long as they don't impinge on someone else's rights.

    I will add that while the government may not extinguish a religion, it is not responsible for keeping one alive either. The government must remain strictly neutral in matters of faith.

    Just like a parent sets the boundaries of what's acceptable in their house, someone has to police the boundaries when religious organizations don't respect our religious freedom and freedom from religion.

    It does not say you have freedom from religion in the constitution

    I think that the right to not have the government enforce a state religion could be construed as freedom from religion.
