Freedom of Religion
Many people today have a distorted belief about what freedom of religion actually is.
That belief springs forth from the massive amount of misinformation in the public arena today.
Many believe the founding fathers wanted us to have freedom from religion.
The Constitution specifically states we as Americans have freedom of religion, not freedom from religion as many believe today.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
There is a big difference.
Freedom from religion means that we will not be allowed or subjected to any religious belief whatsoever.
It means that no religious or spiritual belief would ever be allowed in the public square.
That is not what the founders believed. They promoted
freedom of religion. Most of the founders believed we should discuss our religious and spiritual beliefs in the public square.
