The Commonwealth federal article does not prohibit the particular States of Australia from implementing such religious laws, meaning legislation at the state level could provide for restriction or enforcement of religion.


...


They have "freedom of traditional religion, personal faith, and atheism" in China. New and foreign religions, I think, have to go through hoops and loopholes to prove they would not "destabilize" Chinese society.

And freedom of religion means you can practice any religion you want, or none. That does not give you the right to attack other people.

And other religions use idols. So you are arguing against other religions, which is not freedom of religion.

And "anything quoted in a biblical sense could be seen as not PC friendly"? Except he was not just quoting anything, was he?



Apparently? Did you not read what he said, that hell awaits drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolaters. The others vilify themselves, but those in orange?



So the rights of others means nothing to you? The laws of the land mean nothing to you? So much for the alleged moral high ground Christians often claim to have.
You never hear Jews saying stuff like that...Just Christians...

Freedom of religion does NOT mean freedom of any and all consequences. Say it with me Derek, "Freedom of religion does NOT mean freedom of any and all consequences."

Say something like that, your employer can fire you. Stupid people win stupid prizes...
All Freedom of Religion means is that one has the right to practice their religion of choice without fear of persecution...Plus, the NT says nothing about atheists...

Some atheists do get more annoyed than I do at those Godsuckers who tell them they are going to hell, but I believe I did once post something along the lines of "One day, it will be a punishable offence to say something like that to atheists."

It seems that day has arrivven, and while I am not ruffled featherwise by Hellthreat, I am not going to leap to the defence or even defense of this fellow. Because it is all part of rolling back religious privilege.

PC gone mad? That is actually in the Theist = English dictionary. "social and legal prevention of me saying and doing whatever I like".
You forgot about cooking and cleaning and bare foot...

I've heard Jews and other religions and ethnicities say all kinds of other things. All kinds.

Including that "Goyim" (non-jews?) are not to be befriended and are not trustworthy or valuable companions.

imaginations of hells are not the only things that hurt.

Actually Christians are called by God to love the neighbor as themselves ........... This means that it is not their Job to play God , as it is God spirit who is called to convict believers of sin so they can stand in Christ , so to get into activation and condemn people before they even get to God would just scare people away from God through legalism condemnation ................. So then this person has doctrines of legalism which can be a substitution of faith in God which is idolatry , so go to show people that the condemner need to examine themselves instead of pointing the finger at others
