religion in america

for many americans, religion plays a major role in life. even lack of religion is importnant to some. something that still comes up in this “land of the free” is religious intolerance.

many people follow christanity, catholisisum, jewdism, mormonism, and many other monothiestic religions. many of these claim that all other gods are false, that their god is the real god,nd any other religion causes you to go to hell. all of these religions look for people to convert while all contridict each other. there are also pagan religions (multiple god religions) and athiestic veiwpoints that get thrown into this mix, most of which contridict each other.

while all (with the exception of pagan religons and agnostics) say that their god is the only god or that god doesnt exist it will often cause problems between people and may cause jokes from various shows such as american dad where one charecter will beleive in god while trying all means possible to convert an athiest because of his beleif that the friend will go to hell without beleiveing in the christain god and accepting him as his own.

with many pagan religions showing opposite beleifs and being misunderstood by people due to the media their often looked at as evil and bound to cast “evil spells” on anyone who crosses their path and many other myths. they tend to be less accepted than many of the other religions. none are considered equal here and many will face some sort of adversity because of their religious beleifs, no matter what god (or gods) they choose to beleive in or for a lack of.
