In Defense of Religious Freedom

Religious freedom is under attack globally …

… in many Asian nations where a residue of Communism forces the church to operate underground.

… in the rise of the so-called “Arab Spring” where Christians and reformed-minded Muslims who once had a modicum of protection under secular tyrants are now threatened by Muslim majorities calling for the institution of  Sharia Law.

… in Europe’s growing anti-Semitism.

… in both Europe and North America where a sentiment is  growing to rid the public square of any non-secular religious influence, including Christianity.

The current issue of the online edition of FirstThings includes a statement by Evangelicals and Catholics Together that provides a warning on  the state of religious freedom today. This is a thoughtful read and worth your time.
