    No. We are already seeing the elevation of sexual minorities to protected classes used by various civil rights commissions to trump the freedom of speech, association and action by others.

    Iowa Bureaucrats Force Trans Bathrooms On Churches, Forbid Non-PC Preaching

    Another state issues transgender rules for churches
    Open restrooms, censoring members' comments, massive liabilities all on the table
    http://www.wnd.com/2016/09/another-stat … -churches/

    That's on top of Title 9 being used to tell private schools K-college that if you take any federal funds even if for school lunches or disabled students public schools can't help, you have to let mentally ill boys in the girl's locker rooms and showers regardless of the girls' desires or religious teachings at the school.

      Maybe the Catholic religion is different from others. I have yet to see any other religious doctrine discuss locker rooms and bathroom use in their religious teachings. This seems to be a social/emotional issue and not a religious per se.

      Islam defines how to go to the bathroom and have sex, strict gender roles enforced by a true patriarchy and violence. Refuse an arranged marriage or veiling order, risk arrest in some nations, acid in the face or honor killing.

    In the United States, freedom of religion is a constitutionally protected right provided in the religion clauses of the First Amendment.
    Freedom of religion is also closely associated with {separation of church and state}. Church doors across the country will remain open.
    I don't see that going away regardless of who wins the election.
    Separation of church & state means no church or it's religion dictates the laws of the U.S. the way things are done in Iran or Saudia Arabia where everyone is expected to obey the tenants of one religion.

    "Religious freedom", as in the ability to go to the church of your choice, worship whichever god you wish, and believe whatever you like? Yes.

    "Religious freedom" as in requiring those who do not believe what you do to live by Catholic doctrine? No.

    One of the issues the Catholic church has, in particular, is that it wants to be a church when it's convenient, a political organization when it's convenient, and a business when it's convenient.

    For example, expecting to receive government education subsidies, paid with tax dollars, while not conforming to government requirements for schools that accept those dollars, because they require teaching things that go against Catholic doctrine, isn't a restriction of religious freedom, but the refusal of a religious organization to function as a religion, and fund their schools through private donations and tuition, without public money.

    (And before you comment: I am Catholic.)

      You know them well!
      Bi-sexual restrooms?  Scary!
      The government has laws that are against THE WORD of GOD and when one doesn't adhere they definitely could lose funding!
      There's always been more than one way for the US Govt to skin a cat!

    Was there ever a question that Secretary Clinton would not "allow" religious freedom for Catholics? And if there is suspicion that her administration -- assuming she wins the presidency --- what form is that projected to take?

    In other words, what would a Clinton administration "denial" of religious freedom for Catholics look like? And since when has the "free" practice of Catholicism ever been in jeopardy in the United States of America?

    If anyone's "religious freedom" is in jeopardy in the United States, isn't it the Muslims', given our "War on Terror"? Of course, I know we no longer call it the "War on Terror"?

      States not adhering to government laws based on religious beliefs may reduce to no funding!
      Are you able to STAND?
      It's coming to that!
