Why should we be afraid of freedom?
We should be afraid of an ideology that removes or stifles freedom.
Either we are for freedom or we are enemies against it.
E pluribus unum
It seem like you are saying we should be afraid of Christianity. It is a religious ideology that certainly seeks to stifle freedom, in the extreme. I can't imagine you are talking about atheism, which is simply skepticism of religious claims for lack of proof. No stifling of freedom there.

It’s not my decision but the family of the deceased make those decisions. Not the government, not anyone but the family.

It’s pretty clear what I said.

Either you are for freedom or you are against it.

It sounds like to me from you reponse you are anti-freedom.

You have a lot of work to do in changing the Constitution.

Atheism was a common denominator. And Atheism was married to Communism.

What escape did your pornography business give to the millions who died of AIDs and STDs from the promiscuous activity pornography promoted over the years?

What escape did your pornography industry give little babies alive in the womb when they were aborted because of the promiscuous activity promoted by the porn industry?

Many of those abortions were late term abortions. There’s no telling how many children have been aborted because of the sleazy irresponsible porn industry. The porn industry could have promoted safe sex and birth control but no it promoted promiscuous and irresponsible activity.

Your part of a seedy and irresponsible industry that supersedes anything that BP did in it’s disastrous oil spill. Eleven died in the oil well explosion and millions have died because of the contribution of the irresponsible porn industry.

Christian groups threw a hissy fit and demanded the military step in and block the family's and the soldier's wishes. Do you denounce them stopping the family from fulfilling the deceased's wishes yes or no?

You literally buy any garbage they feed you as long as it has no supporting evidence at all. Nothing of what you said is based on fact, and the facts actually oppose much of what you stated. You need to learn how to learn.

He was a pagan of you had read the article, he had clearly expressed his wishes to his family on his funeral and memorial stone desires. These were denied even though he gave his life for his country. Do you condemn the religious bigots who fought his poor family in their time of sorrow yes or no? Stop DUCKING the question DAFFY.

See this is exactly why the separation of church and state is so important.

Well he said his god gave everyone a chance to save themselves in the time of Noah's flood which was ridiculous. When this was pointed out all he had left was his usual way out in left field Daffy style rant.

Could we add to that the innocent unborn that untold numbers of pregnant women were carrying. And lets not forget the developing fetuses that God saw fit to destroy. And all because of a temper tantrum.

Your maligned and twisted interpretation of what I said is purposeful and represents your core principles. Which embraces falsification and deception. Dishonesty and trickery is your modus operandi. Thank you sincerely for that little display so people can see the caliber of person you are.
