There is justification in limiting freedom of religion.

jscmedley

(This comes from a Christian! Of course, this is just for debate purposes.) Freedom of religion spurs people to act on their religion, sometimes in radical ways. For example, Muslims are commanded to kill infidels- people who don't share the same belief. So a Muslim goes out and kills a Hindu. This act of murder to the Muslim would be justified because he/she is simply exercising his/her right of freedom of religion. However, murder is still murder! By limiting this freedom of religion, that Hin...

According to http://www.numberofabortions.com/ There have been over 90,000 Abortions today across the entire world. The majority of people might choose the pro side to this, abortion should exist. And I have noticed the main argument for this is "The baby is not considered alive and/or human unit birth." An Abortion typically occurs between the 13th and the 20th weeks of fetal development. By the 13th week of fetal development, the baby has already developed its organs and body parts meaning t...

So far in my life, I have not come across anything that convincingly suggests that a god exists or that we should believe in one. I would like to hear what another has to say about this topic....
