Define "Particularaly Severe"
The other day Itacyara was filling out the application for her US visa. Among the routine questions was this gem:
So...violations of religious freedom are not a problem, as long they are not "particularly severe"? One could even interpret that as saying that it is okay to carry out severe violations, as long as it is not particularly severe.
In fairness to the State Department, they are probably trying to make a distinction between the kind of violations of religious freedom carried out be evil overseas dictators and those promoted on a regular basis by the ACLU.
Talk back to the missionary: What do you think constitutes a particularly severe violation of religious freedom, as opposed to a mere violation? Share your legal acumen in the comments section.
