No Freedom from religion
seeker
In a recent article here A Republican congressman declared that there is no freedom from religion.

Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX) said the bill, called the Preserve and Protect God in Military Oaths Act of 2015, would protect the religious freedom of American troops.

“Our Constitution’s very First Amendment protects every individual’s freedom of religion. But our servicemen and women who protect our county with their lives are seeing that freedom under fire,” he said in a statement.


and

“Let me be clear: Americans have the freedom of religion, but not freedom from religion. That’s why I am introducing legislation that requires Congressional approval before any change would be made to military oaths,”


Am I the only one that finds this very disturbing?
