Freedom of Religion is Not Unlimited

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

THE FOLLOWING IS a comment by Ipso Facto from this article:

Religious freedom is not unlimited. I am not a specialist in the restrictions on religious freedom in the US Constitution and American tradition but The European Convention on Human Rights (1950) specify the following limitations:

"Freedom to manifest one's religion or beliefs shall be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society in the interests of public safety, for the protection of public order, health or morals, or the protection of the rights and freedoms of others."

In a secular democratic society the most important is not religious freedom but submitting to the morals that make democracy sustainable.
