300 Word Essay
I chose freedom of religion because it is the one bill of rights that I believe has the broadest expansion in the constitution. I believe that everyone has the right to believe in a supernatural belief. That is why we have the establishment clause and the free-exercise clause. Which were established to keep the government from interfering with the exercise of religion. But in today’s time the government does have the right to limit the practice of a religion, but you still have the freedom to believe our own beliefs even if no else believes them. If the freedom of religion amendment wasn’t important to this country then it wouldn’t exists. We would have one religion where basically everyone would have the same religion and there wouldn’t be a diversity of cultures in the nation as there is today The right to have freedom of religion also lets us have and experience different cultures so we can learn and study how other people across the nation believes and lives. To practice organize prayer in public schools across this country has been erased but the schools must allow their doors to be open after school hours for any religious activities to happen for those who need/want it. As I have just graduated high school and saw for myself how the schools have changed since this has occurred. I saw many young teens needing a religious figure in their life, to help them and to have a sense of hope to keep living a pure and clean life. In school we started a small group of students who wanted to meet together each morning to pray before we started the day, and we were told by are supervisor that we wouldn’t be able to do this in front of the students and had to find a location to take these kinds of activities. But sadly most have already taken the road of darkness and destruction and I’m scared for my children in the future.
