where should the line be drawn. the fact of the matter is, that are certain things in certain religions can could be harmful or provide an enormous inconvenience
for example, there’s a raging debate in Canada about the burqa or niqab being worn by women who testify in court, board airplanes or take the citenzen’s oath. they think they should be able to bypass these security measures because of freedom of religion.
another example, people who follow the Sikh religion carry these ceremonial knives wherever they go. this includes kids at school, at the airport, etC… but of course, no other person would be able to do this.
or Satanists wanting to erect public statues, same with hindus.
or else, muslims who think dogs are unclean. if they tried to exercise this religious right at every occasion, this means i would not be able to go anywhere in public with my guide dog because they believe that dogs prevent the presence of angels indoors, not that they would ever touch him so the unclean part is sort of moot. but if they started insisting that I’m driving away angels from every bus they’re on or every restaurant and store, there’s going to be a problem.
so, what does the church teach about religious freedom? there must be some sort of proper balance, I’m thinking
