Why is a 'choice' so well protected?


Our religion (or lack thereof) is a choice which we all make. It has a number of protections, particularly in the US - Freedom of Religion (and from), Indiana's Religious Freedom Laws etc. However, it is a CHOICE - something one has chosen to believe (even if one was "called" to serve God). Religion has been used against numerous different groups - who's members have not chosen their specific difference nor can they change them...Why is a choice so well protected, when impossible to change characteristics are not?

    There is the choice to leave it though, even if it takes yrs of research. Thats not an option for those who are having religion used against them for things they cannot change. But I understand where you are coming from. Thank you for your answer.

    Thanks. Your final statement - I agree! That's my issue - a choice that is protected is being used to attempt to legislate on things that aren't choices. If all just rights were protected, it wouldn't be an issue. I'll get bak 2 the rest of yr answer

    As I said to Tom - there is always the choice to leave it though - something that is NOT an option to those who it's being used against for things they cannot change. I do understand about indoctrination. Thanks for your answer
