Religious liberty: you’re doing it wrong.

Religious liberty: you’re doing it wrong. March 4, 2013

Arief Hidayat is a candidate to be a court Justice in Indonesia.  He has some pretty strange ideas about religious freedom.

A Constitutional Court justice candidate, Arief Hidayat, said on Monday that atheism and same-sex marriage should be prohibited in Indonesia because they were based on values that contradicted the country’s ideology of Pancasila and the1945 Constitution.

“Indonesia is a religious nation; so, religious freedom in this country must uphold theistic principles. The discussion about religious freedom here, therefore, is not about whether Indonesians may be atheists. All Indonesians should be believers,”

Religious freedom: the freedom to be religious.  Thanks, Hidayat.  I wonder how he’d feel about having the freedom to live anywhere he wants, as long as it’s a hole in the ground.

At least there’s not a huge contingent of believers in this country who view religious freedom in the same, lacking-in-liberty way.
