I have twice written here about “freedom of worship’s” attack on “freedom of religion,” that is, the attempt to shrink free exercise into a mere right to worship .  President Obama has pushed that theme once again in his speech at a White House dinner celebrating the end of Ramadan.  From the speech:

Of all the freedoms we cherish as Americans, of all the rights that we hold sacred, foremost among them is freedom of religion, the right to worship as we choose.

No, Mr. President.  It is much more than that.
