I thank you for not only this article but all that has been published recently on Meridian Magazine regarding our First Amendment Freedoms. It has been outstanding.The First Amendment to the United States Constitution reads:“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...”The exact wording ‘Free Exercise of Religion” as opposed to simply "Freedom of Religion" needs to be emphasized. Freedom of Religion could just mean you can choose your religion but it still doesn’t clarify the right to exercise religion (employ, effect, apply, implement, bring to bear) in the daily affairs of life as we speak up and influence moral values, not just in the home or place of worship but in the public square.
I freely exercise my religious beliefs!
