What is Religious Freedom?

Here at Project #adoptabench we believe that having freedom of religion is imperative for all people. Religious Freedom means to think and act how we want, as well as have the ability to practice where where we would like.

Religious Freedom is a principle which supports individuals and communities in their rights believe, think, and express devotions without restrictions or intervention from government.

Religious Freedom means having liberties to think and act freely upon what we want as well as have the ability to practice where where we would like to.

The First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America establishes the rights of every person to practice any religion of their choice or no religion at all. It reads, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” and this is important. Historically, the reason many individuals fled to America in the first place was to escape repression from intense and extreme religious repression. The founding fathers of the U.S. who came from various religious backgrounds themselves knew how imperative it was to establish the separation of church and state and the protection of religious liberty.

The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment prohibits the government from establishing an official country religion and prohibits favoring particular religions over others.

Religious Freedom is extremely important for all people, yet is wearing away throughout the world. Let’s take a seat and have a conversation. Let’s get out there and #adoptabench

 

Join the Movement

Let’s take a seat and have a conversation.

A movement that encourages everybody to look past religious differences in all people. It’s time to look around, speak up, set aside differences, and have a conversation. There’s no need to be afraid of the person on the other side of the bench. Let’s get out there and #adoptabench.
