The Difference Between "Worship" and "Religion"

It's been noted that Bammy and HRC have shifted rhetoric and no longer refer to 'freedom of religion.' Instead, they talk about 'freedom of worship,' which is a very different thing.

How different?

Four Christian missionaries were arraigned today on misdemeanor charges of disturbing the peace following their June 18 arrest at the Arab International Festival.

Yes, it's a State prosecution--but it's a State run by the (D) folks.

And yes, there are 1st Amendment issues.

But that was when the 1st Amendment actually meant something to Government.

Even more interesting - this group had obtained an order from a US Federal Judge allowing them to do what they were doing. Perhaps the Dearborn Police Department might be in contempt of court?

The rights of these four that have been trampled on is amazing. But then, they were threatening all those tolerant islamists. Then again, under sharia, I believe what those 4 were doing is punishable by death.

City officials said police received a complaint of the members of Acts 17 Apologetics “harassing and intimidating patrons of the festival and that a large crowd was gathering.”

The behavior of these individuals drew and incited a large crowd to a point where they were in violation of city ordinances, including breach of peace and failure to obey the lawful order of a police officer, according to the city’s public relations department.

And we know, Jim, how.....ahhh........."Accurate and precise" complaints and police reports are, right?

Sometimes they are and sometimes they aren't. Why would you expect that the police would want to stifle religious speech? Are police now librul stooges?
