Who is preventing anyone from being free from religion?  I mean other than in Saudi Arabia, Iran, etc.

Ron Reagan's name made me read and watch a little TV about FFRF   on an overcast  evening.

Interesting views. from FFRF.Org ...... current  shout out.

ACTION ALERT : Tell Congress  ..... 'WE Need A National Day  Of Reason '

The Post from FFRF ...freedom from religion foundation  ( tells US )
> now more than ever , reason ,  -  not prayer  or superstition  - must guide us   as we work to solve the complex challenges we face.<

Agreed .

"But God is already in the midst of it    FFRF.Org ,  comes with the package."

I still don't know who in Grenada, US, Canada, UK etc is being forced to pray.  Everyone who wants to be free of religion is 100 percent free of religion.

Well, unless by "freedom from religion" these people don't just mean themselves.  They are working to "free" others from religion.

If that is the case, then I would advise them to do what I told my children to do when they were toddlers: Mind your own business and keep your hands to yourself.

There is a word for evangelizing atheism: "Evangelizing."

Kind of reminds me of Expats free thinking and his faith as an Atheist. It's difficult to offend a free thinker.
Where is Expat, has he been offended by the freedom of others to express choice, thoughts and ideas?
Really disappointed with that guy. He obviously spent a lot of hours trying to convince others with page upon page of his beliefs. Surely interesting stuff and greatful for the information to study, but come on. A bit of opposition and he packs it up. Geez man, crawl out and say hello!

Just wondering? All of those hours dedicated to why we should not get a vaccine will have to be spent in a different way. That's a lot of empty hours to fulfill.
Any chance of getting a new audience?

A boy is selling fish on a corner. To get his customers' attention, he is yelling, "Dam fish for sale! Get your dam fish here!" A pastor hears this and asks, "Why are you calling them 'dam fish.'" The boy responds, "Because I caught these fish at the local dam." The pastor buys a couple fish, takes them home to his wife, and asks her to cook the dam fish. The wife responds surprised, "I didn't know it was acceptable for a preacher to speak that way." He explains to her why they are dam fish. Later at the dinner table, he asks his son to pass the dam fish. He responds, "That's the spirit, Dad! Now pass the f*cking potatoes!

LOL predictable but still chuckle-worthy. In Jamaica any fish, mainly tilapia, that doesn't come from the sea is derisively called pon'-fish. Mudfish. Shitfish.

That's pretty much done.  In the free world no priest or king has has legal authority over anyone. They may not have been literally strangled but they have been legally strangled.  You are free to ignore them.
