Now, I know that APUG is international, and that its administration is not required to follow any particular code other than that imposed by Sean et al.
However, I hope Americans realize that 'freedom of religion' is specifically worded in the constituion as freedom FROM religious authority:
Meaning that 'offense to religion or religious groups' should bear no legal weight at all. In perfect post-David-Hume style, the framers here declare religion merely an opinion, and of no more substance than, say, flying spaghetti monsters. Note that in the very same sentence the framers of the constitution included protection of that annoying 'freedom of speech' idea -- weird, huh? You don't suppose that they thought that religious privelege might be abused by some people as an excuse to make others shut the heck up? And that it was such a common and important issue that the framers made it the very first part of the Bill of Rights?
