  •  defining the edge of religious freedom is easy: (5+ / 0-)

    False imprisonment is a hard boundary that can be used to define the limit of what a religion can do to its members.

    You have an absolute right to communicate with people outside the religion.

    You have an absolute right to leave the religion and its physical environs.

    Denying either of those rights to someone who wishes to exercise them is effectively holding someone against their will which is false imprisonment by definition.

    And needless to say, child abuse, neglect, or endangerment, constitute another set of hard boundaries.  

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
