    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The codes clearly prohibit him from freely exercising his religion. They abridge his freedom of speech. They abridge his right to peaceably assemble.
    No it doesnt freedom of religion does not allow you to do anything you want Is human sacrifice allowed under freedom of religion NO! Neither is disregarding municipal codes. He could have complied and been allowed to continue he refused to.
    This is not about religion you are just trying to pretend that it is

    He can't break into my house and hold a church service in my living room. He can't shut down traffic and hold a church service in a major intersection. He can't perform human sacrifice. So much for free exercise.

    You mean the actual situation of him peaceably assembling on his own private property to speak on his religion? That reality? No, I fully recognize that. I also recognize that you consider him a nutjob preacher, and that you would go to any length to make sure he could not exercise his rights. Yet you want to call me the bigot.
