2. That's actually not accurate, since the free exercise of religion IS the right of each individual

And that right is one of the most significant rights Americans have - on parallel with the right to free speech.

The question is how to reconcile competing rights when they butt heads. Conservatives, generally, would draw those lines differently from liberals.

3. Freedom of religion protects the populace so that individuals can practice their personal beliefs.

If a religion seeks to force its beliefs into law, then only those beliefs are expressed, but other beliefs become illegal. Not good.

4. To protect their right

 

to pass laws that are allow them that advances their
religious
beliefs even if the said belief infringes on my
constitutional rights?

I don't think so.
