"Religious Freedom" Usually Means "Everyone Should Believe My Religion"

Rep. Valarie Hodges (R-Watson) is backpedaling after coming to the realization that the voucher program she voted for, which would permit funding of religious charter schools in Louisiana, ALSO applies to those pesky non-fundamentalist-Christian religions. Lol.
“I actually support funding for teaching the fundamentals of America’s Founding Fathers’ religion, which is Christianity, in public schools or private schools,” the District 64 Representative said Monday. ...
“Unfortunately it will not be limited to the Founders’ religion,” Hodges said. “We need to insure that it does not open the door to fund radical Islam schools. There are a thousand Muslim schools that have sprung up recently. I do not support using public funds for teaching Islam anywhere here in Louisiana.”
