I am all for freedom of religion....

...but rights are not absolute. Freedom of Speech does not mean that you can say things that put people in danger, such as the "fire in a theater" chestnut. So why does religion get a pass? In Wisconsin, you can commit certain crimes and get away with it as long as you say God told you to do it. What if I starve my kids to death and say the FSM told me to do it?

A quote "would essentially allow parents to use religion as an excuse for homicide, neglect, and endangering the safety of a child."
