Restrictions on Freedom of Religion



Universal Declaration of Human Rights

ARTICLE 19:


Paragraph 3:


The exercise of the rights provided for in paragraph 2 of this article carries with it special duties and responsibilities. It may therefore be subject to certain restrictions, but these shall only be such as are provided by law and are necessary: (a) For respect of the rights or reputations of others; (b) For the protection of national security or of public order (ordre public), or of public health or morals.


Exploitation: Although the freedom to chose and practice ones own religion is legally established as an international law, the government and prospect hired legal entities including the United Nations, may legally restrict various activities if they pose a danger to the public.


Present Example:


The novel coronavirus prompted many governs to ban worshiping in public facilities to protect it's population from the spread of the deadly viral disease.


Future Example:


Sexual abuse, terrorism and abuse of the legal system for profit will at some point prompt government entities and hired legal entities to eliminate and or restrict religious activities of the offending parties.
