As predicted, conservatives begin to speak out against religion-promoting laws | Secular News Daily

For some time now, I’ve been predicting that Christians–evangelicals in particular–would start to speak out against the very laws they are promoting. Laws that grant religious privilege.

It was only a matter of time, and that time has come.

Pamela Geller writes the Atlas Shrugs blog, which focuses on Islamic fundamentalism. She’s co-founder, with Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer, of “Stop Islamization of America”.

Geller is not a Christian; she’s Jewish. But she’s leading the way:

While speaking with conservative radio host Janet Mefferd yesterday, Geller called for the repeal of RLUIPA because “it’s become a weapon in which to club small towns and cities” where Muslims are seeking to establish mosques, lamenting, “the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.” She said that Muslims are “dishonest” with local governments by “circumventing the rules” on capacity requirements because they pray on their knees. Geller said that RLUIPA must be repealed for the sake of the “freedom from religion,” a phrase normally anathema to Religious Right audiences.
