  1. I'd concentrate on explaining these basic rights.

    2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:

    (a) freedom of conscience and religion;
    (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
    (c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
    (d) freedom of association.

    Explain that everyone can go to any church or no church. Everyone can say what s/he wants. Everyone can have the friends they want.
