Freedom of Religion

Freedom of Religion allows everyone to practice whatever religion they may wish to practice with promise of not being forced to change religious views.Religious freedom ensures that people, regardless of their belief or nonbelief, are accorded equal rights and equal opportunity to have a voice in society.Going to religious places or activities increases the amount of people that can be met and made friends with therefore building social skills.

Prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, and abridging the freedom of speech. The Freedom of Religion forbids congress from stopping religious practices that aren't Christianity and trying to force a certain religion upon other religious groups that practice a separate religion.

Freedom of Religion

Pros

Devoid people of accountability for their own actions because their religion tell them it was alright to do the actions they’ve done that might not be lawfully legal.It creates mass delusion in which the religious people believe that they are right on moral grounds solely based on their religion or to what religious entity they are a part of.Limits freethinking and freedom of speech, for example, drawing of the prophet Mohammed is considered forbidden by Muslims.

Cons

Conclusion:I believe that Freedom of Religion could go either way being good or bad. It gives people the freedom to practice their own religions, but also it could make certain religious beliefs be done even though they may not be legal. Using the Aztecs as an example, they believed in human sacrificing which would be illegal in the United States, but it's their religion therefore this amendment would allow them to continue this practice.

Minersville v. Gobitas (1940):The Court upheld a Pennsylvania flag-salute law, because “religious liberty must give way to political authority.” This was reversed in West Virginia v. Barnette (1943).
