The First Amendment

One clear distinction of the United States is its promotion of a religiously tolerant and free country. The First Amendment to its Constitution prohibits the government from leadership or authoritative roles in religion, allowing free expression of religion in society.

It’s no doubt that to most Americans, the freedom to practice any religion without persecution is without a doubt an immediate human right that should be upheld in America.

A majority of Americans identify themselves as Christians, but a multitude of different religions are represented within the country.

Personally, I feel like freedom to practice and hold any religion is a significant element to America. It allows not only for religious tolerance, but cultural tolerance and acceptance, which promotes a more aware and understanding people.
