Freedom of religion is a personal choice and should be respected, however, it is a choice – just like choosing to support a particular football team or political party. In a modern society those who choose not to be religious should not have their freedoms curtailed because it may offend those who are. Therefore, anyone should be free to mock or ridicule religion in the same way as they can mock or ridicule Manchester United or the Conservative Party. Similarly, they should be able to open their shops on Easter Sunday or any Sunday.

Freedom to practice any religion should be protected by law, but so should the freedom not to practice any religion or be restricted by it’s beliefs.

Why is this idea important?

It will restore the rights of non-religious people rather than having the wishes of religious people forced upon them. Religion is a choice.
