Hi, I'm 15 years old, so I have relatively no experience in life, as such, the following opinions can be subject to change, so if you read my entire myTake and disagree, feel free to debate with me, I'd love to talk some more.
I'd like to start off by saying that I believe we are entitled to all our own opinions, and that if you are religious, please don't take offense to this. If you live in America, you're almost sure to know the pledge of allegiance:
"I pledge allegiance to the flag and the united states of America, and to the republic, for which it stands, one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all"
And you're almost sure to know the first amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
In summery, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly among other things. Lately, I've been seeing more and more people on both sides (but particularly with the conservatives), who will use religion as a motivator for laws (an example of this is the use of the bible as reason why the heartbeat act in Texas is good).
For those of you who don't know what the heartbeat act is, it is an act/law passed in Texas that bans abortions after first signs of a heartbeat (this can be as early as two weeks into a pregnancy, long before most people know they are pregnant). The controversy with the heartbeat act spans through multiple issues, including the removal of bodily autonomy and the fact there are not exceptions for special cases.
I don't have a problem with you voting on something in a manner that aligns with your beliefs and morals, but when it comes to law-making, freedom of religion becomes important. If you were to use a bible verse as your evidence in trying to pass a bill, (and for the sake of this analogy the bill passes) that bill would be unconstitutional. Specifically because not everyone follows your religion and you are trying to create a law the enforces your religious opinion, which would force others to follow a law that follows a religion that is not theirs. Definitely not freedom of religion to me.
In summary, the act of creating bills with evidence that uses religion is unconstitutional and wrong, but you could try to pass something using morals as your base reason why. I am not against religion, I'm against religion that forced onto me.
