Letter: Should we exercise caution when supporting freedom of religion?

Published 8:28 am Wednesday, June 6, 2018

Our American Declaration of Independence states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life …”

Memorial Day is a recognition of those who sacrificed to preserve and protect that right to life.

Should we Americans support our First Amendment that prevents Congress from making law that prohibits the free exercise of religion even when religion instructs its followers to kill those who do not submit to that religion or its god?
