The Family Research Council more or less explicitly contends that only conservative Christians and conservative Jews are entitled to the First Amendment guarantee of religious freedom.

People for the American Way’s Right Wing Watch observes that FRC’s recent statements — including one on CNN’s Belief Blog — limits the definition of religious believer to “Evangelicals, Catholics, Lutherans, Orthodox Jews.” FRC excludes atheists, Buddhists, liberal Jews and Christians, Muslims, and every other religious affiliation from its concerns about supposed threats to religious freedom.
