Religious Diversity Sites

From the colonial days, America has always been defined by religious diversity. So central to American democracy and the belief of separation of church and state, the founding fathers enshrined religious freedom into the first amendment. By prohibiting government interference in religious practice, America has become a beacon for the world’s religions, creating an environment where diverse faiths have flourished for centuries. We invite you to explore the religious diversity through historic places. that has accompanied American cultural and ethnic diversity. They demonstrate that our differences in race, ethnicity, education, socioeconomic status, etc. -- and the ways we connect across them -- is what makes America, America.
