      It always amuses me the way you get your logic tangled up.

      Nobody that I know of on critics wants to see anthroposophy or
      Scientology banned.

      We're in favor in general of freedom of religion. (It's just stupid
      to pretend your religion isn't one.)

      In the US, there is religious freedom, and anthroposophists enjoy
      this and should not only speak up for their own rights in this
      regard, but that of other religions too. These rights should be
      protected. Critics are not in favor of discrimination against or
      persecution of anthroposophists.
