Columnist Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s comments about religious freedom show he has a fundamental lack of understanding of the subject ("Freedom of, not from, religion," June 1).
He seems to think that the "dominant culture" in any country should be allowed to dictate what religious beliefs are paramount. Isn't this why our ancestors fled their home countries in Europe — to get away from such thinking and practices?
Also, freedom of religion does indeed imply freedom from religion. Otherwise, one cannot practice one's beliefs freely.
