You probably already know by now that there is a very real war against religious liberty taking place. Every day it seems I read another headline about a Christian losing a job, being denied employment, being sued, or being threatened by the government for their religious convictions. Finally people are waking up to the fact that many of the “politically correct” views lawmakers and activists are seeking to enact are diametrically opposed the religious convictions of millions of Americans.
What is needed now is for people to stand up and boldly refuse to sit in silence while their religious liberty and freedoms are taken away.
You might be willing, but wondering “what can I do to help?”
The good news is that taking a stand for religious liberty is easier than you might think. But if we all take part and do a little it will make an enormous impact. So, to that end I’ve copied a list of simple things anyone can do to defend religious liberty. (This list originally appeared here.)
I’ve been following the judicial activism in states with traditional marriage laws as federal judges, acting alone, usurp the will of the people and enact sweeping changes unilaterally. For previous comments on states that have had marriage redefined for them within the past year or so, scroll down to see an earlier post. (Or click here for my first post on the subject.)
The first post centered around 13 states – conservative states – where marriage was being threatened by judicial activism. Since that first post, much has changed. Two more states were added, Georgia and Wisconsin. Of the original 13 both Utah and Indiana have now had marriage redefined for them – along with Wisconsin.
All in all this means that 15 conservative states where marriage laws protected natural, one man one woman marriage by a vote of the people have now had those laws wiped out by a single judge. That fact should trouble ever freedom loving American that believes our Constitution stands as a barrier to such radical activism.
