Religious Discrimination

Many of the original colonists of the United States came here to escape religious persecution, and today the U.S. government remains largely secular. According to the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, a government can neither restrict a resident’s right to practice their religion nor force a resident to practice someone else’s religion. In addition, civil rights laws were later enacted prevent the government and most employers from discriminating against people on the basis of religion (real or perceived). This section provides historical, legal, and practical information about religious discrimination under U.S. law.
