Religious freedom has become on of the most debated topics that has been brought about. In America the Constitution states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” This shows that people are free to believe and exercise in any religion they please to exercise. Often times there is disagreement about the separation between church and state. The other side of the spectrum show disagreements of religious exercises imposing decisions on others.
The problems that came from the topic was should people be able to practice their religions freely in a public space. Both sides of the argument expresses a great deal of pros and cons on the subject. Other claims made in the argument were a separation between church and state, the two so that other religious views are not imposed on the outsiders. Most counterclaims in the argument were that implications of religious practices shouldn’t be around government agencies, such as schools, post offices, and other institutions.
Disagreements often escalate to legal challenges regarding public space and who can use it. Meaning sides from both groups try to practice freely in open space, and others try restrictions to stop the situation. The differing subjects clash on different matters between the pledge of allegiance, religious rules being displayed out in public, and the right for businesses to only serve those who share the same beliefs.Tags: Judge Memorial Catholic High School religion
