Freedom of religion means that you do NOT attempt to force your religion on others through the law.

It means that you do NOT attempt to legislate other religions...be they Muslim, Mormon, Scientology or Christianity.

It means respecting the strength of our First Amendment and not being scared of "others."

Get it together and respect our Constitution.

That is all.

    Yes everything you said is true. Sharia law has nothing to do with religious freedom in America. As for the How So? I guess you're referring to the Religious Right comment? They are the ones who are despite abortions being deemed legal since 1973 in this country still try to intimidate doctors and patients and push legislation that makes it next to impossible for some to obtain a safe, LEGAL, abortion. Our Constitution guarantees rights for ALL Americans, yet the religious right continues to oppose equal rights for gays. So.... if you think there aren't elements in this country that want to rule via religion, then you aren't paying attention.

    Abortion being legal doesn't make it right. Murder is murder. Bypassing consequences of irresponsable behavior by murdering is wrong. Abortion rates should be going down due to all the birthcontrol available but they are not. The mentality of why be responsible when we can just get rid of it is just sick.

    Whether or not it is "right" is within one's personal belief system. Just because a group of people believe a law of the land isn't "right" doesn't give them the right to push what they THINK onto everyone else. People should really just mind their own business. All of these abortion protesters who bomb clinics, kill doctors, threaten doctors, heckle patients, etc.have no clue of that person's circumstances.

    A friend of mine took her daughter to get an abortion. Her daughter was married and wanted a baby badly. They found out that her baby was severely deformed and made the decision to abort. It was a hard decision and then she had to endure the heckling and hate aimed toward her while trying to get a LEGAL procedure that was deemed the best decision for her and her husband. So.. as I said - people should mind their own business. They don't know the circumstances.

    These abortion Bleeding Hearts - I wonder.....

    It is freedom OF religion not from religion. However any religion bent on violence towards others then comes up against other laws to deal with that violence. If your brand of religion does not contribute towards your being a peace loving law abiding citizen then there is something wrong with it. Those without religion fall under the same in that they are expected to be peace loving and lawful citizens. The government has no right to enact any laws against your religion unless it is advocating the breakage of American laws for the peace and security of all its citizens.

    Actually the Constitution advocates freedom FROM religion as well as OF. That is why Jefferson was adamant in including "there shall be no test of religion" for the office of the presidency of the United States into the Constitution. Per our Constitution, our elected president has to pass no test of religion other than that in the minds of the voters. Christians, - Protestants - Catholics - Baptists, Jews, Muslims, Hindu, Atheists, Buddhists - you name it Constitutionally can be POTUS - due to design, not accident. Just like all of the hoopla accusing President Obama of being a Muslim. He isn't. But what if he were? There's nothing in our Constitution that disqualifies a person from becoming POTUS because they are Muslim - or even Mormon. So indeed our Constitution does protect our rights FROM, as well as OF, Religion. Many are confused on that issue due to the rabid pushing of religious/moral laws by the far Right of the Republican Party. It becomes hard to remember/realize that.

    And the left attacks Romney on his religion don't they?
    Where can I find the words 'FROM' religion?

    Where can you find the words "OF" religion?

    The text isn't sacrosanct. Benjamin Franklin made an impassioned statement urging people to accept the compromise of the text in order to move forward.

    The founding fathers wrote broadly, as they were smart enough to know that if they wrote something too specific it wouldn't stand the test of time.

    "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". In actuality what they were trying to prevent was a government state religion like that had in Europe.

    I don't remember the Left or anyone else referencing Romney's Mormon religion since back during the Primary. And it actually wasn't the Left then - it was the religious RIGHT who wanted to claim that Mormonism was not a Christian religion. The Left really doesn't care what his religion is as they are the ones who really honor religious freedom.

    I gave you the "FROM" reference. When it is designated in the Constitution that there will be no test of religion for the office of the presidency of the U.S., that is not freedom OF, but FROM religion.

    "This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding".

    The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States".
    Still no word 'from'; however the test prohibts judging a man by his beliefs as requirement for office but does not preclude the voter his personal opinion to judge.

    Did I say that the actual word "from" was stated. Can you read? Can you interpret? Obviously "no religious test shall ever be required....." is not freedom OF religion - it is freedom FROM religion.

    Here is the problem, some religions attempt to sue law, whether it is the building notion of Sharia in Europe, or the fundamentalist xtians here.

    Freedom to worship, is different than shaping public policy, which has become a norm of religion in the US since the 1840s.

    I am proud to be Christian but also proud of America's Constitution: The word "God" is not used anywhere in the document, and the word "religion" is only used in the 1st Amendment. Roger Williams said "any attempt by the state to dictate religion or promote any particular religious idea is 'forced worship', and forced worship stinks in the nostrils of God."
