I'm a protestant. From a protestant viewpoint, the leaders of Mormons, Roman Catholics and lots of other denominations "mislead people" into "pointlessly making life altering decisions" and make a "mockery" of true Christianity. (I'm not trying to start a flame war here, I know people of the other denominations believe what I believe to be soul-endangering heresy.)
But it's a free country (or at least supposed to be). And I objected specifically to the atheists demanding congressional investigations and court proceedings.
If people want to peacefully proclaim what their religious denomination teaches, as long as that does not involve enslaving or killing infidels or advocating sharia law, it is their right as free citizens of a free country to do so.
Those of us who believe in a free republic ought to speak up and defend the right of Camping and anyone else to do so.
It’s somewhat presumptuous of you to speak for all Protestants in trying to justify your world view.
Speaking as an atheist, I agree. He's free to spout whatever nonsense he likes, and people are likewise free to believe his blather.
“I’m a protestant.”
What are you protesting?
