But what about the Christians that claim Christianity isn't a religion but a relationship with Christ? But everything else is a religion?

Imagine the froth and spittle if a Muslim mayor passed an ordinance blocking people with a personal relationship with iron age carpenters from gathering together  on the grounds that it isn't a religion.

"Christianity isn't a religion, it's a personal relationship with Christ. And if you're a guy, that makes it a homosexual relationship. And homosexual relationships are bad. So if you're a man, you are forbidden to be a Christian."

Ironically leaving people outside the gender binary as the only true Christians.

Religious Freedom was also the name of a bill in 2012 that would've given tax money to churches and other religious groups, that don't pay taxes.  Fortunately, it was shot down, showing Florida does have some sense.

I just love how the Right loves to use words like, "Freedom," and "Free Speech" to push agendas that do the opposite. 
Whenever I hear a politician speaking strongly for or against abortion, all I hear is, "I have no idea how to fix the economy!"
