Final Project. A maximum eight (8) page final paper/report shall be turned in by each group spokespersons. Use of charts and tables are strongly encouraged in the appendix and not in the body of the paper/report. Please keep in mind a source (citation and reference) is required on each table/chart used. All sentences with quotes or numbers need citations with page numbers. Groups are free to use the text book as a source but should not rely on the text book exclusively. The text book is merely a good starting point for additional ideas and resources.
Topic: 1st Amendments provides freedom of religion. It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individual’s religious practices. It is actually quite different in this case because “the courts have noticed that some beliefs may simply be too crazy to qualify for protection (Morrison E, p132).”
The textbook reference is below:
Morrison, E. (2014). Health care ethics: Critical issues for the 21st century (3rd ed.). Burlington, MA: Jones & Bartlett Learning.
