Hostility against religious liberty has reached an all-time high, and the attacks are increasing at an unprecedented rate. America’s First Liberty – the freedom of religion – is being pushed out of public life, our schools, and even our churches.
Our friends at the Family Research Council and the Liberty Institute, our sister organization in Texas, today released an eye-opening report called The Survey of Religious Hostility in America.
The survey is a collection of more than 600 cases, detailing religious bigotry throughout America — most of which have occurred within the past 10 years – and worse, these happened right here in the land of the First Amendment freedom of religion!
” America’s First Liberty – the freedom of religion – is being pushed out of public life, our schools, and even our churches.”
Note: The subject of this report is all too real for Family Research Council and its staff, who were targets of a gunman at their headquarters just days ago who entered the lobby in their D.C. office and expressed “not liking Family Research Council’s policies” and is now under investigation by the FBI for domestic terrorism.
