Apparently, "religious freedom" and "religious liberty" are no longer constitutional rights guaranteed by the First Amendment, but "code words" for intolerance. Or so says the chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
The idea that the First Amendment is about intolerance helps explain Democrats' recent efforts to weaken it in Congress. He said the concept of religious freedom is really about "Christian supremacy" and should be governed by anti-discrimination laws.
Chairman Martin Castro's remarks were included in a report released Thursday titled: "Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling Nondiscrimination Principles with Civil Liberties." A link to the actual report on the USCCR's website is currently broken.
