Coakley and redefining freedom

On the radio, someone named Ken Pittman, interviewed Martha Coakley, the Democratic candidate for Senate from Massachusetts:

Ken Pittman: Right, if you are a Catholic, and believe what the Pope teaches that any form of birth control is a sin. ah you don’t want to do that.

Martha Coakley: No we have a seperation of church and state Ken, lets be clear.

Ken Pittman: In the emergency room you still have your religious freedom.

Martha Coakley: (……uh, eh…um..) The law says that people are allowed to have that. You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room. (Washington Times)

In other words, like many--if not most Democrats, Ms. Coakley believes that the government should determine when, where and under what conditions you have freedom of religion and freedom of speech.

That's the kind of "freedom" people have in China, Cuba, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Iran, etc.
