    It’s very simple, Mr Bedrosian. You draw the line at the point where your religious observance affects other people’s lives. So, for example, you can choose not to drive on the Sabbath but you can’t cut public transport for other people. You can choose not to use contraceptives but that doesn’t mean they are banned. You can celebrate Christian festivals but other people don’t have to follow your example. You can sit and pray quietly but you can’t yell your prayers in other people’s faces. If you want people to stand during your prayer, you stand for theirs. Not because you subscribe to their belief but because you respect their right to hold that belief, just as they respect your right to hold yours. It really isn’t that hard.
