Religious freedom

We are a free country that allows people to express their beliefs and allow evertone to have a choice of what they believe in and what religion they wish to follow.

It is important because it gives us free will and the right to be able to choose what we believe in, as 80% of our country are religious.

It impacts on us as it could strengthen our belief, helpse us to see a God in every religion aswell as our own.

It also could impact on us as we may decide to change our religion.
