What most of the detractors [of state/church separation] don’t seem to understand is that we are not threatening their freedom to believe, practice or advertise their religion. We sue governments, not individuals or churches. We are not barging into services pulling worshippers from pews. We don’t drag Nativity scenes from front yards or Christmas trees from private businesses. We don’t want to break the law: We want to keep the government from breaking the law – law based on the First Amendment protection of personal liberty.
Not sure if it’ll change any minds, but it’s good to see the piece appearing in a prominent paper.
