Conservatives are often fond of saying that they’re all for freedom. The story frequently changes, however, when it comes to the freedom of people who aren’t exactly like them. Many conservative people come across as almost fundamentalist in their ideas about life and freedom. Some of them even seem to frown upon people who are different from them and not necessarily straight, Christian and white.
Conservatives sometimes give off the impression that freedom is the right for them to freely force their religion opinions onto others, freely establish practices that are prejudiced and freely do anything they please and not have to consider how other people feel. The truth is, however, that conservatives do indeed possess the right (and therefore “freedom”) to dislike anyone they want.
If they want to dislike people who aren’t Christian and straight, that’s entirely their prerogative. If they want to be extremely self-asured and confident regarding all of their religious beliefs and ideas, they’re free to be like that as well. Despite those rights that they undoubtedly have, they definitely don’t have any basis for forcing their beliefs onto the citizens of a country that’s based around pure religious freedom — the United States.
Conservatives simply lack the “freedom” necessary to do that. All Americans lack that specific freedom and right. If they want to talk about how they don’t approve of same-sex marriage, they should never start their sentences with any reference to the Bible, period. Christian beliefs are 100 percent unrelated to America’s Constitution.
