Having read most of the thread now, I wonder at how someone in the US, as an individual, is prevented from completely enjoying religious freedom?
I can think of a few examples: certain hallucinogenics used in ceremonies are illegal. Polygamy is no longer legal. Certain business practices compel a business owner to serve people or provide services they object to on religious grounds.
Other examples include cutting off a thief's hand. Stoning an adulteress.
In an American context, all the examples that come quickly to mind can be resolved by being based on how they infringe on the freedoms of others. Drugs, polygamy...I have no objection to making legal. They are choices made by consenting adults.
Bodily harm to thieves and adulterers....cruel and unusual punishment. An unreasonable infringement on their ''freedom".
The one regarding businesses is less clear cut for me. I understand how some people can find some things objectionable in relation to their religion. For the most part, I believe that accepting a business license from the state legally binds a business owner to serve everyone. That they knowingly enter into that contract with the state and know they must uphold it and choose their business/business practices accordingly.
