Devoid of any spiritual compass, religious universalists contend that all religions (or none) provide an equal basis for enlightenment. Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights upholds the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion; but Article 29 limits these rights to the purposes and principles of the United Nations. Furthermore, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (3 April 1992) sets open-ended limits on religious freedom and "peaceful assembly" (Trinity Law Professor, James Hirsen). As a result, Christians gradually forfeit the same liberty afforded politically correct Earth pagans who worship Gaia; Muslims who worship the Moon God, Allah; and neo-pantheists who worship "the god within" -- all freely and openly.
Case in point. Not long ago, in the name of "separation," a 5,000-pound granite-based monument to the Ten Commandments was indecorously ripped from the rotunda of Alabama's Supreme Court building. However, Tibetan monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India were allowed to create a sand mandala in the third-floor rotunda of the King County Regional Justice Center in Kent, Washington (Kent Reporter, 15 October 2003).
