The right of any people to freedom of belief and choice are fundamental and cannot be denied. If someone does not want to be religious, they should not have to. If the government is allowed to enforce religion, many religions will fight for power, and civil rights will disappear. Look at the Crusades, the Salem witch trials, the Spanish inquisition, the Wahhabi movement dominating Saudi, Afghan, and Pakistani governments. Look at the Hindu versus Muslim thing in India. It is not right, and I believe in Jesus, but I am saying this.

Personally I think the government has no right to enforce religion on people. this days most places in the world are a liberal democrat countries and being liberal it means that we as individual are free to exercise our own religions and plus if you take Canada for example. Canada is a multiculturalism country were you have a large number of different races and backgrounds. I think the only reason Quebec is enforcing the ideal of the government neglecting religious right is because they want to be unique, different from the rest of Canada. just by making a sort of one religious for everyone within a country will create civil war.

Cry me a river, build me a bridge, and get over it. It is uncalled for to spam and start drama on MY debate.

1. That is not true. 2. That is not relevant to this debate.

ROFL. You must hate people calling out your utter mistakes. Have you ever heard of constructive criticism, or are you too arrogant to accept criticism?
