To the dismay of some, many Americans still insist on living out their faith in the public square. These are the people fostering and adopting children, caring for the elderly and the poor, and organizing relief after natural disasters. They’ll carry on doing so even as their numbers shrink – unless they are stopped by politicians, judges, and public officials who are ready to tear up the guarantee of religious freedom in the Constitution.
And, make no mistake about it, that is a real possibility. Suddenly, religious liberty and what have become known as “conscience rights” are threatened by dogmatic secularists.
