Religious Freedom Is Under Attack - 3 Things You Can Do About It

Religious Freedom is one of the key principles our country was founded upon.  When our forefathers came to America, largely from Europe at the time, there was religious persecution in many European countries.  People had to worship at one state church or along certain lines.

In America, people would be free to worship God as they chose.  While most of the original settlers came from Christian churches, they were free to join whatever church they wanted -- or to not believe at all.  Americans could practice their faith without the government telling them what they should believe.

Today, religious freedom is under attack.  Chaplains in the military are told not to pray in the name of Jesus.  Bakers are told they must compromise their religious beliefs or face heavy fines.  The government is attacking the Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic group, to try to force them to offer contraceptives in violation of their religious beliefs.

This is what our forefathers fought for -- to preserve our freedoms to believe.  Now it is our own government that seems out to attack those very freedoms.  Here are 3 things you can do: 

1)  Pray -- Pray that God will allow our freedoms to be preserved and to grow.

2)  Vote -- Vote for men and women who will stand up for religious freedom.

3)  Act -- Look for opportunities -- small and large -- to sign petitions, to protest, and to support religious freedom.

Is there anything else we can do?  We would love to hear your thoughts.
