Focus on the Family yesterday promoted “religious freedom” for itself, but silently mouthed a “no comment” regarding religious freedom for anyone who isn’t evangelical.

Focus on the Family and the religious-rightist legal attack-dogs at Alliance Defense Fund claimed to promote “Christian” clubs in public schools, promote the expression of supposedly “Christian” prejudices against gay and non-Christian public-school students, and promote amateur preachers’ self-aggrandizing public “prayer.”

But when it comes to the rights of atheists, Jews, gay Christians, or others to express themselves — or to protect their children from captive proselytization by fundamentalists in classrooms — Focus and ADF couldn’t care less about the freedom not to bow before idols of fundamentalism.
