Re-Educating America Part8, Freedom of Religion and why it’s important In the United States, freedom of religion is a constitutionally protected right provided in the religion clauses of the First Amendment. Freedom of religion is also closely associated with separation of church and state, a concept advocated by Colonial founders such as Roger Williams, William Penn and later founding fathers such as James Madison and Thomas Jefferson. There has been so many attracts on religion over the years that it’s apparent that some don’t have any idea what religion is, what it can be or should be and what makes it a right anyway. The first thing that should be considered is religion is a personal choice not a mandate and should only be of interest to that person engaged in that or any other religious activity, and only important to them and not to anyone else who doesn’t have a direct interaction with that person except only those aiding the original person such as a spouse, and just because some wish to gather in a certain venue that is their choice. Second what is religion; it is a way of validating moral behavior and encourages comradery among people in a group setting by not being alone, engage with others. And with that comradery supports mental health. That right of freedom of religion is one major part of what gives everyone that and other rights and freedoms, and those that wish to eliminate any of those rights for any reason is like many other dictatorial or tyrannies actors. The attack on this right is an attack on everyone and their personal freedom to engage in any legal activity whether it’s religious or not. Remember do you want to be told what to do or make your own choices.
