  • No. I think religious freedom is why America was made.

  • Nope, because in the end, if that person didn't want to be converted... they could walk away or speak up against it.

  • I do think that some prosthelitizers are actually harrassers. But that's already illegal. While I don't appreciate people knocking on my door and telling me I'm going to hell I don't want their freedom to do so taken from them. I support their rights just as much as my own.

    So no, I would not support that legislation.

  • Sure if they added every race, religion, sexual orientation, and anyone else I disagreed with. Thank God we live in America.

  • No way. It's a right. If anyone wants to go get on a soap box and tell me what they wanna say, bring it on! It's what America is all about!

  • Im kind of in the middle.
    On one hand it would keep twits away(you know the kind that are freakin' nuts over their religion and never shut up about it and push and push and push) but at the same time...its a freedom and once you start taking one away, others tend to follow and that doesnt lead to good places usually.

  • No, I Think it's an important part of religious freedom.

    But I would support something to the effect of them respecting a "no proselytizing" sign on a door.

  • That's why there is a NO Soliciting sign on my door. If they are out in public, as long as they don't get pushy, I don't mind any religion.
    I would rather NOT screw with restriciting FREEDOM OF SPEECH...we fought too hard to get it.
