The First Amendment Rights

The first amendment is freedom of religion. This law gives people the right to follow or worship any religion that they want to in the United States, however, this is not an absolute. The reason it is not absolute is because this is only true when it does not go against another law, or harm other living beings. For example, if a religion said that they were to burn other people's homes while people are inside, the government would not allow it. They have to put their people first.  That would probably have to arrest them for murder, which would be the law that they did not follow. That is the reason that the first amendment is not an absolute law.
