For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here (Thinking).” Here, Patrick Henry went against the very first Amendment to the Constitution, which asserts, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…(Bill of Rights)” In saying that the United States was indeed founded on the religious practices and morals of Christian life, Henry stood for everything that all the Founding Fathers believed as a whole. Several people would agree with him, saying that the only reason religious freedom is allowed is because those who originally governed the U.S. were good Christian men, and therefore welcomed with open arms any of those who fled to America in pursuit of liberty of religious persecution
In America all we have every known is freedom, it's the main way we believe as you have heard the saying over and over again "Land of the free, Home of the brave." America is all about freedom of all kinds including religion and speech. Even though other countries may not believe in so much freedom as us Americans doesn't mean they aren't open minded.

Most people fight for there religion everyday, how they should have the same freedom as everyone else while others don't agree.
These three are the most important of all of the amendments in the Bill of Rights. It is important that we have amendment one, which allows American citizens the freedom of religion. Freedom of religion is very important to our country, and as individuals we should be allowed to worship the one true God, or anything else we want.

Freedom-Truth, Law, the Church and Morality. Kasey Smith Faith and Moral Development Mary Caprio 9.18.11 Freedom-Truth and Law In Veritatis Splendor, Pope John Paul ll addresses the issue between freedom and truth, and between freedom and the law. How he addresses each of these issues, and how these are related to these concepts for the faithful, as well as the church and the world as it relates to morality, will be reviewed in this paper. Pope John Paul ll begins by addressing the fact that human freedom is one of the most debated issues. “The dignity of the human person is a concern of which people of our time are becoming increasingly more aware.” I believe that what he means by this is that as the generations pass, people are thinking more for themselves than they ever have before.” People are now demanding to “enjoy the use of their own responsible judgment and freedom, and to decide on their actions on grounds of duty and conscience, without external pressure of coercion.” What I take from this is that people believe that they know what’s best for them, and they think that God’s law really has no bearing on the decisions they make.
What is religious fundamentalism? Refer both to literature on modernity and religious fundamentalism INTRO Throughout the course of this essay, a study will be embarked on fundamentalist movements in order to investigate what religious fundamentalisms are, if and why they appear to be resurging, their characteristics, their possible links to violence, and their relation to modernity What is religious fundamentalism?

Thus, not only are the Christian religious right in the United States and the global al Qaeda Muslims called fundamentalist, but so too are local parent groups who want restrictions placed on Internet access in local schools.
