Freedom of Religion

Freedom of religion is the idea that people have the right to practice the faith of their choice. In the United States, this right is secured in the First Amendment, which states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” Many people chose to immigrate to the American colonies due to religious persecution in their homeland between 1492-1763. The founding fathers had this in mind when they added the First Amendment to the U.S Constitution in the Bill of Rights.
