Expanding on the 1st Amendment

The reason the 13 Colonies started is because the English people wanted freedom to practice their religion. Some of those people left the Colonies to start their own because their religion was not accepted there. Others moved to Holland to practice their religion freely. But they eventually sailed back to North America because they did not like diversity of the religions in Holland. They were the pilgrims. All those people had the same desire: to practice the religion they favored. Some religious groups were forceful about everyone in their Colony practicing the same religion, while others were open to other religions (as long as they were able to freely choose the religion they wanted). Everyone has a desire to believe in something. Whether it is a religion or moral values. So we should let everyone believe what they want to believe.
