Why does religion limit human freedom of thought and oblige him to faith in God?
Why should a person trust the one whom is written in the Old Testament about likeTyrant and Despot, the murderer of children, and about who could send diseases and pestilence to humanity. Maybe the god of Israel is the real Demon, to whom the lost ones pray?

Religion is a extortion racket giving people a phony promise of life after death in exchange for their freedom and their money.

It does neither one, silly. Questions are always good. Doubts are not, since they are the antithesis of faith and guarantee that we shall have no miracles.
My religion doesn't force people to believe. It encourages them to find out for themselves.

The fact that Old Testament Judaism had a lot of mistaken ideas about God is irrelevant. God Himself came to earth to correct such faulty ideas and to reveal the actual truth to us.

No one using mangled grammar like that should be questioning the ability of others to think.

Pretending god limits your scope severely. You have left all options out except one and that one (god) option is demonstrably wrong. Religion closes a mind solid, no more reality, only one wrong option...religion has proved itself to be a bane on humanity. Yet some still claim that is good, but it isn't.

Mere religion certainly does limit human freedom of thought.
But faith in the living God opens up the mind to new understanding that those without faith in God cannot grasp. Further, faith in Jesus Christ results in a transformed mind that thinks in a renewed way. That's because faith in Christ causes our slavery to sin and death to be smashed. We are liberated by trusting in what God did in Christ.
As He said, He came to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those bound. But those who despise Him remain bound and without understanding.

You should see the OT and NT for what they are, ancient superstition and nothing more.

Religions are "For Profit" business run by professional charlatans. Their product is bullshit intended to control people through FEAR .
Freedom of thought is their competition.
Atheism is freedom of thought.
