Under the law yes, we have complete freedom as outlined by Deana. But as Hondo points out the minority religions will always face hostility and ridicule from the majority. So you are free to practice and belief whatever you want but you should have a thick skin if it's not the religion that most follow.
Pretty much, as long as it doesnt require breaking the law. Religions requiring or allowing illegal drugs, human sacrifice, pederasty, murder, rape, prostitution, etc are not free to practice but most religions are free to meet when and mostly where they want and in the manner they choose. Not only that but most religious entities like churches do not have to pay federal taxes.
To an extent of the law (and sometimes past it) If you wish to kill an infidel in the name of Allah, you are not allowed. If a Christian wishes to bomb an abortion clinic in the name of god, that much is not allowed. Here's an interesting example... Years ago, a young man was given a date to have a job interview, and he was also Native American. When he took his urine test, peyote was found in his system, and he claimed that because of his transition into manhood (that required him to trip on peyote in the woods for a few days) is a justifiable reason for him to have tested positive in the drug test, and got the job anyway. It all depends on good a thinker you are, or have on your side, even in religious purpose
Answers1, maybe English is not your first language, but in America we have freedom of religion. And not freedom for "your religion". And yes there is. You are free to practice what ever religion you want to, as long as it does not bring harm to others. Rastafarians can smoke their holy smoke, and Muslims can pray their prayers at the appointed times (even though some Christians may protest).
There really is religious freedom in America. The difficulty in in being NOT religious, (agnostic), or in not believing in a god at all (atheist). While these are both legal, they are socially frowned upon and can make life in America very stifling.
technically? yes... but no matter what religion or spiritual path you have you will find ignorant people making life hard for you because of what you believe. LOTS of ignorant people who think if you don't believe exactly what they do, then you are wrong and they tend to be very vocal about it. however, legally we have religious freedom as long as it doesn't break any laws.

Well, considering gay marriage isn't legal in the majority of our states due to SOLELY religious reasons, I'd say not complete and TOTAL freedom. This is because these laws against gay marriage, which everyone is obviously forced to follow, makes it so that people who couldn't care less about the Bible are being forced to follow one of its rules by the law. These marriage laws mean that gay people who aren't Christians are still having to follow a 'rule' that only applies to Christianity (and Islam too, I think). We can't possibly be totally free if there are actual laws that force us to follow the 'rules' of different religions.
