America: Founded on religious freedom

Friday, November 15th, 2013

bibleOne of the greatest freedoms American offers its citizens is the ability to believe in a spiritual being of their choice, or not at all. Christians, Catholics, Muslins, Jews, atheist and more are welcome to the country and to their own beliefs.

Our government was founded on being secular…not as a theology. But many far right conservatives want to impose their religious beliefs on everyone. They believe they have the right and know what is best for everyone. They are wrong and our country needs to fight to maintain the principles of our founding fathers.

I strongly support religion and religious institutions, but understand they are not one of the three branches of government and shouldn’t be. While people have fought crusades for centuries to impose their beliefs on others, leaders are always claiming it is for their own good. They say they are compassionate, but their actions speak louder than their words.
