Freedom of religion also means freedom from religion

Freedom of religion also means freedom from religion

Sorry for being a little lax dear readers. But here’s Monday’s Courier News column which covers my thoughts on the no 9/11 moment of silence at St. Charles East High School controversy. As if school administrators need to waste their time on this one. 
My first contention is that any high school student who wants to take a moment of silence can do so any time they feel the need. The second is that, while I will defend your right to practice your religion to my own death,  I’m not bound by your belief system. And the fact that I may or may not believe what you believe should in no way diminish you.
But it always seems to do just that. Why is it that so many self-stated serious religious folk can only find spiritual safety in numbers? Perhaps their faith was never that strong to begin with.
