Here is the part I saw coming a mile off- Shortly after the prayer post, someone posted the Seven Tenets of the Satanic Temple. Predictably, many of the same folks defending the prayer had the dead opposite reaction to the 7 tenets. Comments such as "small-minded", "loser", "grow the phuck up", "shame on you", "disturbing", etc.
I don't know what the real-life percentages are... but in my experience, those who most often shout for religious liberties are usually only doing so for their sub-group. They have little real interest in religious liberty as a fundamental right... rather, they use it selectively as a shield to protect their interests.
The most perfect example of the 180 people can do came from a person who said,
"To all that criticized the religious post… I mean seriously, couldn’t you just scroll by?"
However, on the Satanic Temple post, she commented,
"You should grow the phuck up, you’re behaving like a spoiled child. Shame on you"
Moving the goal posts is a real and regular thing.
I see this topic in the same light you do.
