What is Freedom of Religion?
Supreme Court Case
This case was about the University of California and how a student led organization was discriminating who could be in their organization because of their religion. They made every new member recite "I believe in: The Bible as the inspired word of God; The Deity of our Lord, Jesus Christ, God's son; The vicarious death of Jesus Christ for our sins; His bodily resurrection and His personal return; The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration; [and] Jesus Christ, God's son, is Lord of my life." The court ruled that they couldn't limit their members to only people who believed in the same religion as they do.
