Should this conflict be approached as a matter of individual sovereignty or should a global norm be adopted? Technically speaking, the right to express religious freedom without the influence of government is enshrined in sovereign treaties, doctrines, and constitutions all over the world. It is also addressed at a global scale, specifically in the Declaration of Human Rights(SOURCE). However, this matter would not be necessary for discussion and improvement if there were no exceptions. While the general idea is that this is a basic human right and there should be absolutely no reservations to religious expression, there are certain matters where religion must be regarded behind the interests of national security and individual safety.
Religion is a special thing indeed, and the religious liberty is a significant and specific part of human rights. There are different kinds of humans’ basic right, including equality and freedom of expression, only under the specific provisions can protect this kind of freedom substantially. No matter national law or the international law, the provisions which protect the religious liberty, is specific. 1.the constitutional protection of religious liberty:the experience of US Religious and belief liberty is one of the important human right in th... ... middle of paper ... ...rch and government; we have not formed a legislation system to protect the religious liberty substantially. 3.
The answer here is yes.

There would be a true "separation of church and state." Religious freedom has always been an important part of American history. It is the concept, which originally divided us from England, and without it, this country might not exist today.
Proselytism is an integral element of mainstream religions, in particular Christianity and its sects. Its restriction arguably run contrary to the very notion of human rights, undermining the freedom of religion, of association and of speech as enshrined and protected by the UNDR . At the same time however, it needs to be recognized that this is merely scratching the surface of the debate, that there is a parallel in which aggressive proselytizing could at the same time infringe upon the very freedoms of others. So with this contradiction in mind, is there any way to justify laws limiting proselytism for the very sake of religious freedom? What is the stance the human rights regime ought to take?

The mentioned freedoms should not be limited by any religion or ideology. The only reasonable limitation to public freedoms is other people’s rights and freedoms. The only place that government can stop people from exercising their religion is where a law is violated; a law which is passed enacted and applied by a secular government. To put it in a nutshell, religious freedoms have to be respected and protected.
Freedom of speech means that one must speak his mind to without fear of being punished, detained or discriminated against it. Freedom of speech also means that you may distribute your personal views, for example by organizing a demonstration against a new law, or publish his opinion in a newspaper, on the radio, television or the Internet. Freedom of speech is one of the human rights that the United Nations has included in 'The Universal Declaration of Human Rights'. All 193 member states of the UN have agreed so to guarantee the freedom of speech in their country. Nevertheless, it is not respected everywhere, including in countries where there is war or that have a dictator as head.
There are organizations working internationally to protect our rights and there are religious groups working individually and together to assure that we can exercise our rights fully. The first amendment addresses freedom of religion, speech, and the right of the people to peacefully assemble and petition the government (U.S. Constitution). This amendment specifically states that the people preserve the right to worship how, where, and who they want. They also have the freedom to not worship as an atheist. Congress cannot make any laws that take away these rights or prohibit the exercise of them.
This phrase should be removed for an assortment of reasons, including the country’s freedom of religion. The United States of America is a country based on freedoms; freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of petition, and the freedom of religion. This is the first amendment in the United States Constitution, which goes even farther to say that church and state must be separated. This clause is one that is difficult to follow, while being a nation based on religion. The negligence of this clause is especially noticed in the line,
The reason for my including of this liberty, and my stressing of its importance, is that I feel that the government interprets this liberty in a one sided fashion because of the incorrect interpretation of the already in place separation of church and state clause.

In these aspects of equality and self-reliance, it is my belief that only government is powerful enough to ensure or attempt to ensure this pursuit. To conclude, I have covered the two main ideas that I wished to add to my constitution essay, along with one civil liberty that I had already addressed. I explained my reasoning as to why I had established the civil liberty of religious protection within my original paper, along with the reasons that I wished to add those of freedom of speech and the pursuit of happiness.
These questions are difficult to answer. Nobody wants to see any human rights violations. However, defining what human rights are varies by country and even by individuals. What one nation believes to be a human right, another may not. Then there is the dilemma of a nation’s sovereignty.
