The Fight for Religious Freedom

Christians today are battling for their religious freedom in the Supreme Court.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Institute for Faith, Work & Economics, along with 36 pastors, theologians, scholars, and other Christian organizations, has filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in support of cases like that of Hobby Lobby Stores.

To ensure Christians are able to live out their faith in all areas of their life, certain civil liberties—i.e. the freedom of speech, the right to own property, and equal protection under the law—are necessary.

The government is seeking to limit Christians’ right to live out their faith in any vocation outside the church. This is problematic because whether Christians are in the ministry, in business, in politics, in medicine, or in education, their work is a religious activity and their beliefs inform their actions.

 

“We realize that religious freedom is not an isolated liberty, but one that encompasses everything we do”, said Hugh Whelchel, writing for the Institute.

The Founding Fathers understood that faith is foundational, which is why religious freedom is the subject of the First Amendment  the amendment which all amendments support.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I
    had to ask!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like
    you wrote the book in it or something. I think that
    you could do with some pics to drive the message home a
    bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing
    the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
    for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you
    could space it out better?

    I do consider all the concepts you have presented in your post.

    They’re really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for newbies.
    May you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe
    guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same
    topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot
    me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!
