Religiousfreedom is a right in the United States that is protected by the FirstAmendment, it is closely associated with church and state. Many citizens allover the world are forced into religions the day that they are born. They areplaced into their parent’s or grandparent’s lifestyle a choice and in somecases they are distraught with their beliefs. Freedom of religion is a constitutionalright that supports the freedom of an individual or community to manifestreligion or belief in teaching, practice, worship, and observance. Eventhough that in 1993 the United States federal law stated that it “ensuresthat interests in religious freedom are protected,” That may not be thecase for all religions throughout the United states.
The acceptance of religionin the US can be classified as sometimes biased when it comes to allowingreligious freedom. Most recently, Muslim communities in the U.S.
have faced adisturbing wave of bigotry and outright hostility. Overtime the muslincommunity had a name collectively as terrorists. Throughoutthe years, different acts of terrorism from the muslin culture had led to makemost of the population believe that muslins are dangerous people and should beshunned. In today’s society they are discriminated just by the fact of theirreligion and are forced to hide their religion or to change it completely.Women walking home in their hijabs with their children are frightened in thecase of someone making hateful remarks.
Onthe other hand, religious freedom has its place where each religion is free toserve whoever and whatever they like. There are over 120 religions in theUnited States and each one of them is protected under the First Amendment act.Morepeople than ever before are identifying as atheist, agnostic, or otherwisenonreligious, with potentially world-changing effects. Also more religiousgroups are being formed, some we haven’t heard of and they also will have theirequal respect.SigmundFreud regarded God as an illusion, based on the infantile need for a powerfulfather figure; religion, necessary to help us restrain violent impulses earlierin the development of civilization, can now be set aside in favor of reason andscience.
If that theory is viewed as true or not religion is an outlet forcitizens to release stress and escape reality through spending time withwhoever they may worship.
