    Do we have it? Apparently not all our citizens really want freedom of religion.

    Why are Christian bigots allowed to force their hate and stupidity into the laws?

    “The civil rights of none shall be abridged on account of religious belief or worship, nor shall any national religion be established, nor shall the full and equal rights of conscience be in any manner, or on any pretence, infringed.” – James Madison (Original wording of the First Amendment; Annals of Congress 434 (June 8, 1789).)

    “During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What have been its fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution.” – James Madison (Memorial and Remonstrance against Religious Assessments, 1785.)

    I’m more curious to see what it would be like if we had freedom from religion.

  • Simple evidence of this is in countries like Iran where freedom of religion is NOT happening. All trust of others is erased and your neighbor becomes your enemy.

  • You would have a lot of people that did not really follow or actually believe what they facially “believed” in, and no one could ever be able to speak out about their differences in belief without a harsh punishment of some sort.
    You would have something similar to China. China, under communism, declares that there is no state religion by stating the country is atheist. However, although it is deemed unlawful, people will practice a religion (often Buddhism, Confucianism, among others) behind closed doors.
