Freedom Of Religion In Syria
In the Syrian Arab Republic, freedom of religion is a constitutionally protected obligation. Although the Syrian Constitution of March 13, 1973 will soon be amended, applicable religious clauses are not expected to be changed.
In Syria religious freedom is closely associated with collective rights and duties. In other words, the comprehensive structure of the Syrian constitutional system has evolved and continues to evolve mainly around collective dimensions of religious tolerance. The extent of autonomy by which a religious community is free to organize and administer itself devoid of state external intervention or control is largely determined by personal status laws and public endowments.

“That, upon the whole, we may conclude that the Christian religion not only was at first attended with miracles, but even at this day cannot be believed by any reasonable person without one. Mere reason is insufficient to convince us of its veracity: And whoever is moved by Faith to assent to it, is conscious of a continued miracle in his own person, which subverts all the principles of his understanding, and gives him a determination to believe what is most contrary to custom and experience.”
—David Hume (17111776)
