WHY WE SEEM UNABLE TO PREVENT TERRORIST ATTACKS
I suggest that our difficulty in arresting terrorists before the y strike is because they represent a religion This, I think, gives them a little too much slack.
High time for us to replace “Freedom of Religion”. with a law that respects every person’s right to believe as his own conscience dictates providing that he must never condone nor encourage violence.
First, most mainstream religions, annoyed by a small group of radicals giving them a bad name would be glad for a reason to reject them.( True, these few might still claim they represent that religion but would receive no protection under this act.)
Secondly, the existing act essentially discriminates against all those whose beliefs do not fall into the category of a religion. There are plenty of other belief systems about—agnostics, atheists humanists, libertarians, many who base their whole lives on their philosophy and there is plenty of evidence that society discriminates against atheists and other non mainstream groups They need and have a right to the same protection as a religious person.
