How are the places of worship harming anyone else? How is having a religion freely expressed in public harmful?

Banning a religion from being in the public should only be reserved for a religious group that is actually harmful. Otherwise what you're suggesting is that religions go underground, and meet in secret. People of a faith usually come together to teach, pray, and worship. Is there a public harm in these activities that they must be restricted away from the public. (If someone gets angry or offended, that's not the same as if they are actually harmed).

Again if there is actual harm from one religion or even just one group within that religion, then let the reactions and punishment fall on that group. Christians, Hindus, and Buddhists should not be punished for the actions of Muslim gangs being formed. Nor should innocent groups be punished for cruelty and to animals done by some satanist (or any other pass by the night belief calling itself a religion) that descides Halloween is the perfect time to mutliate a cat, a rabbit, or any other animal they can get their hands on.

If a religion is innocent of the harm another one causes, should the first religion (and all religions) be punished for something they did not do?

Ise Mise you damn your own words because you put zero thought in to them or others rghts
The link can not be ignored, it however in no way says anything other than everyone's rights in this area should be respected
However, we must be sure any new law is not used to target one side or the other
It is a minefield, please believe it
Can a Christian school sack a teacher who is not Christian? maybe
But can a Islamic School do the same
Will some fool, one day, claim FGM is religious right?
The whole idea needs thought, let us do this right
Now for the person intent on side tracking this debate, Saturday is not a Christian holiday, Friday is for some, seventh day adventists indeed have Saturday as their sabbath
the concept of weekends is no longer a religious one, it it family time together
NOTE over 20 percent told us last census they follow no faith, the however almost for sure have family fun on weekends

It is the height of hypocrisy to deny that there is a God and then demand days off work in his name.
Is Mise,
yep and, the religious are exploiting the control they influence people with in his name ! Hyporcrites also !

How are the places of worship harming anyone else? How is having a religion freely expressed in public harmful?

I believe that everyone should have the right to express what they know and what they think.

Problem when it comes to debates over religion is that people lose sight of the fact that religious views are used to bring about political, social or economic action to promote the interests of one group over other groups. So debates on religious freedom extend beyond the limits of epistemological arguments and are really exercises in political persuasion.

We have institutions outside of religion that control political activities that give rise to power and authority in our society. This is why the modern nation states abandoned monarchical authority and separated politics and religion in the wake of the Enlightenment.
