The 1st Amendment to the United States Constitution is as follows:
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.
Guess the first country to allow it’s citizens to freely practice their religion? The one country that got the ball rolling? That would be us.
How many countries today have freedom of religion today? I found 66 and I’m sure that’s not all of them.
We all know the countries that don’t allow freedom of speech. We know countries that will kill you for saying certain things. It’s sad. It’s a right we have that we too often take for granted.
You get to say what you want to say without fear.
Yes, a lot of the time people say things we don’t like, but they get to say it. The media get to as well. It’s a difficult system, but it’s a beautiful system.
