OK, that sounds good, but does such “freedom” allow people to do whatever they want under the cover of religion?
Well, that answer is no. �
Here’s how that applies to the most common allegation in religious freedom cases today-charges of discrimination. �
In these cases, there is not a compelling interest for the government to interfere. Religious freedom prevents the cultural majority from using the power of the state to impose their beliefs on others. Religious freedom preserves America’s
diversity, where people of different faiths, worldviews, and beliefs can
peacefully live together without fear of punishment from the government.
