“Religious freedom is more than the “freedom to worship” at a synagogue, church, or mosque. It means people shouldn’t have to go against their core values and beliefs in order to conform to culture or government.”
Religious freedom protects people’s right to live, speak, and act according to their beliefs peacefully and publicly. It protects their ability to be themselves at work, in class, and at social activities.
Religious freedom preserves America’s diversity, where people of different faiths, worldviews, and beliefs can peacefully coexist without fear of reprisal.
