DVAU members and supporters may be interested in this post about how the Religious Right has hijacked the phrase “religious freedom” and are using it to deny others the right to true religious freedom.

A term that’s become extremely popular among conservative Christians here lately is “religious freedom.” But every time I see conservatives say this, a famous line from the movie The Princess Bride pops into my mind: “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
Which shouldn’t be surprising considering conservatives are often big fans of repeating words or sayings that might sound good, they just don’t make a whole lot of sense.
And the term “religious freedom” is a great example of that.
We have to be vocal about defending true religious freedom through separation between church and state.
