Tolerance of different faiths is a vital part of the foundation of American freedom. We do not have a national religion and thus, allow virtually all religions to exist side by side. But we also have reasonable limits on how people worship, meaning that one religion cannot claim exemption when their practices infringe or threaten the rights of others. Such is the argument in Michigan where students who follow the Sikh faith have been granted permission to carry into schools the small dagger known as the Kirpan.
