Freedom of religion is important because it is a big part of happiness for most people. If people don’t have the freedom of religion or belief then their lives will be really weird because they might be worshiping someone they don’t even believe in. If individuals don’t have the freedom to religion/belief then they can’t worship whom they want. Sometimes people don’t even want to worship or have a religion at all. Freedom of religion/belief is important also, so that people can’t be just forced to join a certain religion/belief, or maybe even leave one.
Everyone has the right to follow his or her own religion. However everyone also has the right to change his/her own religion. You also have the right to profess your religion freely, and to practice it on your own or with other people. http://www.un.org/cyberschoolbus/humanri ghts/declaration/18.asp
In my religion, we believe that everyone should have the right to belief and religion also. In our 11th article of faith it says, “We claim the privilege, of worshiping Almighty God, according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how where or what they may. http://www.lds.org/scriptures/pgp/a-of- f/1?lang=eng
everyone has the right to his/her own religion for example: there are 2.1 billion Christian people in this world. About 1.3 billion Islam people. 900 million Hindu. 376 million Buddhism. 23 million Sikhism. and 14 million Judaism people in this world. http://www.woodlands- junior.kent.sch.uk/Homework/Religion.html
I think that we should uphold this right because if we don’t, people’s lives will be unhappy. Fighting, and even wars can happen when people disagree about religious freedom. We should protect religious freedom as long as it doesn’t hurt other people.
