Leonard Pitts's of The Miami Herald writes about the shooting of and recovery of Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban for supporting the right to an education for girls and women in her country.
The column expands beyond that particular case to discuss some other actions people take or things people say in the name of religion:
Take it all as a stark reminder that too often, people who speak glibly of the will of God really describe no will higher than their own. They presume to interpret God like tarot cards or the stock market, forgetting that God is sovereign and does not need their help. He is a big God. He can speak for Himself.
Freedom of religion has and must continue to also include freedom from religion for those that do not believe, or believe in a different god than you do.
