There are several social issues surronding the concepts of  Freedom of Religion vs Freedom from Religion. I have listed a few below – you may have others.  Pick 2 different issues (either from the list below or something else you are interested in)

For each issue: 

  • state what issue you  picked – state your sources (3)
  • find a source for each side of the arguement – what information did they provide to support their position? (10 pts)
  • after looking at both sides – what do you think? (5 pts)

Should American Laws be based on religious beliefs?

Should business be allowed to deny services based on their religious beliefs?
