Since these freedoms aren’t mentioned in the Constitution, the government is allowed to exercise authority over these freedoms. Could you imagine that your state is announced to only believe in a certain religion, or that the government has announced everyone must follow only a certain religion? What would we do then? The only answer would be to rebel or to follow the laws of the government and we just only recently fought in battles to secure our rights. I am utterly confident that no one would want a Constitution that would jeopardize their rights.
Freedom of religion is another very important right. People are allowed to believe in what they choose to or they can decide to believe in nothing at all. Freedom of Religion makes a living in the United States better because in other countries there is a certain religion everyone has to follow. Freedom of Protesting is people who get together for a cause and whether its good or bad the protest should be allowed to by the government. People may create protest against you or to help you in anything they want.
Brown’s statement on how the fourteenth amendment being affected, was that the fourteenth amendment only talks of ensuring the treatment of citizens to be equal. This meant their treatment would be equal to that of a white person to the fullest extent, but they must be kept separated. This separation based on color was ruled completely constitutional. Brown also said that the fourteenth amendment was made to ensure that colored people are legally treated as equals, and that the fourteenth amendment never stated to have the colored people be treated socially equal. Their decision was also mainly based upon trying to keep peace and that it was a reasonable excuse to say that Separate but Equal was legal.
Because of that, Plessy and the lawyer not agree with the statement of Justice Hanry Brown than he prosecutes the Supreme Court and make a petition. In the petition, Plessy said that black and white race must have equal right for example in public transportation and schools, because in 14th amendment said that all US citizen have same right to life, liberty, or property without due of law. At the end this case make a wrong doctrine to the citizens about “Separate but
According to IIP digital “The U.S. Constitution’s protection of freedom of expression embodies the notion that an individual’s ability to express himself freely — without fear of government punishment — produces the autonomy and liberty that promote better governance. Allowing citizens to openly discuss topics of public concern results in a more transparent and representative government, more tolerant ideas and a more stable society.” Without freedom of speech, the voices of the great minority that live in the united states won 't be heard. How did the gay marriage became legal because they were able to express themselves and fight for what they believed was right. Without freedom of expression we would be stuck in the same era, do to the fact that no new ideas would come, and everyone would have the same
Lastly, Sharia law cannot coexist with a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people" because it would violate the American Constitution. One of the first things that the Constitution grants its American citizens is free speech; this means that people can say whatever they want. However, Sharia law does not grant such a luxury. It is against the code to "[criticize] or [deny] any part of Quran". If anyone under Sharia law violates said code, the punishment is death.
The rights of LGBT community are still currently seeking universal acceptance. Even though the declaration adopted by the United States in 1948 states, "Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this declaration without distinction of any kind ..." has not helped as it does not cover the sexual orientation of an individual. As a result, some countries in the world are developing techniques and systems to begin the legislative favor and enforcing laws that protect LGBTs against discrimination. Even an influential organization like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch are joining to finally eliminate discrimination by constantly protecting them against crimes and advancing equal views on each sexuality. According to Chinggu, LGBT couples around the world were still excluded.
While granting to its citizens liberty of belief, faith and worship, the Constitution abhorred discrimination on grounds of religion, etc. Not only in fundamentals rights (as has been discussed above) protected by the Right to Constitutional Remedies, but the Principle of Secularism has been incorporated (although implicitly) in the Directive Principles of State Policy (DPSP) and the Fundamental Duties as well. In the DPSP, the Articles of 38, 39, 39A, 41 & 46 not only attempt to promote equal opportunity for growth and sustenance for all, but these principles, coupled with the most basic objective of the state, the doctrine of ‘Parens Patriae,’ promote secularism in all of its forms. Although not justiciable but the onus of maintaining the cordial atmosphere among all the religions and caste, creed and sex is also the responsibility of the citizens as per the Fundamental Duties, especially according to Articles 51A(b), 51A(e) &
Even if this was done, it would have been a slow process. Therefore Articles 15-18 were introduced to widen the scope of equality in India. Right to Equality connotes the principle of equals among equals. It is a fundamental right that every person exercises in order to be treated the same as others. Therefore it is very essential to
The Courts are an organ of Government but they are not part of the Executive Government of that country but the apolitical organ of government the Courts are there continually to extend the protection of the law equally to all who are subject to their jurisdiction: to the minority as well as the majority, the disadvantaged as well as the powerful, to the sinners as well as the saints, to the politically incorrect as well as those who embrace a contemporary orthodoxy. The principle of judicial independence is not proclaimed in order to benefit the Judges; it is proclaimed in order to guarantee a fair and impartial hearing and an unswerving obedience to the rule of law. That is the way in which our peoples secure their freedom under the
