When Is Religion Taken To Far?
Religion in America
First and foremost our country was founded on God.
With that being said however, our four fathers created
the Declaration of Independence. That all people no
matter their sex, race, age and ect had the same
opportunities. America is known as a melting pot
and the land of the free. With different cultures
and beliefs that America has today, it has created
hatred,discrimination and death from religious groups.
You turn on the tv and read the newspaper about a
group of people or one person who has committed a
crime against a religious affiliation. Mass shootings,
bombings, massive suicides, and homicides are just
a few of the crimes against religion. But, where does
ones beliefs in religion come from? Most of the time
it comes from our family and are upbringing. We
are introduced to religion by our parents, friends,
media and ect. Some people take on the religion
of the family and others seek other religions out.
But, what happens when a child is forced to take
on the parents religion without choice? How does
this affect the child that is not willing to take on the
family's views? Is it ok to force your religion on the
child and make them not have a choice in the
matter? Does it create a monster against that
specific religion or all religions? What is causing
people to kill because of someones religion?
