Letter-writer should be ashamed for intolerance

There is this pesky little thing called freedom of religion, which gives an individual the right to believe in whatever (deity) they want, and express their beliefs without being judged, or persecuted.

Mr. Fevin,
In response to your letter: "School trip to March for Life was unacceptable":
There is this pesky little thing called freedom of religion, which gives an individual the right to believe in whatever (deity) they want, and express their beliefs without being judged, or persecuted.
If the parents signed the permission slips, they were in agreement of their children's attendance of the event.
I understand, you are an atheist, and that is your personal choice as well as Charter right. What you find "unacceptable" seems perfectly acceptable to those involved in Catholic faith, in which case, again, freedom of religion and freedom of expression trumps your personal bias.
I'm curious, would you be equally judgmental towards students skipping many hours of (taxpayer funded) class instruction to participate in climate change related protests? Or Pride events? I'm guessing that would be a "no".
I'm an agnostic, so personally I could not care less what you believe or don't believe in. But just because you are not religious, that does not give you the right to tell others how they must behave, just because you do not approve. That is simply a capricious, thinly veiled censorship.
One can only be horrified by your personal attack on other people's religious views. If anyone should be ashamed, it is you, Mr. Fevin, for being so arrogant and openly intolerant.
J. Gil, St. Albert
