is derived from the notion that each person is given a "Free will". The exercise of that free will in speech ,religion, and thought transends the Governments authority to either grant or to take away . It is an "Inalienable" right. given to us by God. Individual "Free will" is a Christian concept rooted in Judiasm, and codified in the United States Constitution by Christians and Jews when creating the United States, giving that freedom to all Americans, even the Satanists, Muslims , Hindus all are free to chose and practice their religion.
