It certainly does, especially when it comes to passing judgments on others. And it really does not matter if it is obtrusive or not. Religions who condone disruptive behaviors at funerals, and in other public places, are the norm these days.
There is, of course, always an exception to those 'religious' freedoms. The main exception is that religions do not allow their members to speak ill of the religion itself. This practice is punishable by eternal damnation with pain and suffering to be carried out in their respective hells that they own.
D. William, I don't know anything about the funeral thing, but your last two sentences said it very well. As a matter of fact, hell begins the very moment you start speaking ill of the religion, LOL.
http://youtu.be/RRAYFYjam-E This video will explain the funeral thing. It is truly disgusting. This is what we are defending when we defend "free speech".
D. William, what a bummer! I got this message: "The uploader has not made this video available in your country. Sorry about that." Tried using 2 web proxies, but neither worked!
Sorry youtube is not available in Malaysia. you might try http://youtubedownloader.com to see if you can download their free software. I don't know why it would not connect in Malaysia. Let me know if this helped
No! Independent thought and the speech that goes with it is not welcome if it does not agree with the teaching of the religion or the way it is depicted by the leaders of that particular religion or version of it.
WHAT RELIGION ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? Your question is phrased as if all "religion" abides by the same teachings and practices.
I guess there is no such thing as freedom of speech and thought because I saw that they would not publish your hub on The God Delusion. I profess to be a Christian myself, but I would never promote censorship of any kind and I am certainly displeased that they would not publish your hub, which I was looking forward to reading.
LOL, they say that my hub is very close to Wikipedia but I guess both Wikipedia and my hub quoted extensively from the book, "The God Delusion" to support our arguments. Anyway, I have deleted the article and transferred it to my own website.
I have noticed that they will not let you take very many risks on this platform. Just stick to tips on how to cook a chicken pizza and you're okay.

Which is more important, freedom of faith or freedom of speech?Many religious folks are decent, good people. Some of my best friends subscribe to institutionalised superstition - and are good humored enough to let me say that without taking offense. But most religions per se enshrine some deeply...

Is freedom of speech compromised in America today?It appears difficult to publish articles pertaining to racism, unless the racist in question is white skinned. It also appears difficult to publish articles pertaining to same-sex marriage if the article is anti-same-sex marriage; even if the...

Let's face it. We ALL know that most atheists are paranoid of religions and that they're in-denial about it. They claim they're the more peaceful people in America when really they're no different from any average radical religious person. They also claim that there has been no crime commited in...

Do you believe in religious freedom?Yes, this does relate to that pesky Mosque built near Ground Zero. Will you abandon the 1st amendment?
