The free PRACTICE of Religion

One of the skirmish lines in popular culture is that Social Justice Warriors want to restrict the practice of religion.  Essentially, they are saying "You can believe anything you want but you may not act on those beliefs."

It is not even necessary to use logic to follow that line of thought to its logical conclusion.  That endpoint exists in the wild.  Source

Under the (Kazakhstan) law on religious activities, any rituals can be held only in specialised places for worship.  ...religious minorities...are systematically subjected to fines or administrative arrests, even for the joint reading of the Bible or prayers in apartment buildings.

Vladimir Vorontsov, the rector of the parish of the Nativity of the Most Holy Mother of God Church, stood trial. (...because) he, along with children ...and several parents conducted prayer meetings in the mountains.
The logical endpoint is that you will not be allowed to read books in the privacy of your own home.  The Bible is a book.  An apartment is a home.

Nor will you be able to go out into the wilderness and be able to pass your culture on to your children.

That is not "Social Justice".  That is a depraved lust for control and power.
