The right to be left alone works both ways

Each of us has the right to be left alone, to do and say what we want, free of governmental intrusion.

Yet, for some reason, some people think we also have the right to the approval and acceptance of others.

In fact, as private individuals, acting purely in the private sector, we each have the right not only to live as we want, but also to reject what we don't want.

In other words, my religion can preach that you go to hell, and your religion can preach that I go to hell. Neither of us has the "right" to belong to the other one's church.
