Pharyngula’s first rule regarding religion

July 7, 2009 | By | 1 Reply More

Spurred by news of a distressing incident occurring in Jerusalem, Pharyngula announces his basic rule regarding religion.

This is something too many religious people fail to understand — you can practice your religion, other people can practice their religion, but you don’t get to tell other people that they must practice your religion.

Sounds good to me.  It couldn’t be clearer. Maybe we should add it to the First Amendment for those who are having trouble understanding the existing text.

    This reminds me of a corollary from Dave Barry: People who want to share their religious beliefs with you almost never want you to share your religious beliefs with them.
