Does Jim Inhofe really believe this?

"If you restrict those of faith from applying their conscience to the world around them, then you quench the progress of freedom."

The 9-11 terrorists applied "their conscience to the world around them" - was that OK? Or are only Christians allowed to "apply their conscience to the world around them" ?

"The rule respondents favor would open the prospect of constitutionally required religious exemptions from civic obligations of almost every conceivable kind, ranging from compulsory military service, to the payment of taxes, to health and safety regulation such as manslaughter and child neglect laws, compulsory vaccination laws, drug laws, and traffic laws; to social welfare legislation such as minimum wage laws, child labor laws, animal cruelty laws, environmental protection laws, and laws providing for equality of opportunity for the races."

Inhofe said "If you restrict those of faith from applying their conscience to the world around them, then you quench the progress of freedom." -

Are you disagreeing that the 9-11 terrorists were Muslims? Or do you disagree that Islam is a faith?

That's a very small percentage of Muslims, just as the radicals are usually a small percentage of any faith.

Don't think he does. Nor does he explain how the 9-11 terrorists were not executing their consciences. Who the hell would fly into a building for something they DIDN'T really believe in? Given that - Inhofe's statement appears to suggest that preventing 9-11 would have been a detriment to freedom.

Irrelevant. Inhofe doesn't make that qualification in his statement.

Its not irrelevant. Freedom is risky.

It is if you want to talk about Inhofe's statement in the OP.

No, it isn't. Freedom means you run the risk of crazies coordinating an attack on someone they deem as evil. They were then roundly condemned by most civilized nations, and destructive aspects of their faith were scrutinized. This isn't that hard.

How is this in anyway controversial?

Does every single statement now need a qualifier? And just imagine the outrage Liberals would have had if he DID use the qualifier of "except radical Islam".

Why didn't you name the religion of the 9-11 terrorists?

Where your freedom contstrains freedom of others. Muslims killing others impacts the freedom of living.

This would certainly explain why you are naive about so many topics on this board.

Most reasonable understand the difference between practice of faith and unconsented to violence.
