Religous Freedom in America

Now, I haven’t really gotten that involved in the Ground Zero Mosque controversy, not because I don’t care, I’ve just been busy.  I think it’s a bad idea for a myriad of reasons, but I do understand the left’s argument that Americans have the right to worship.  President Obama said, “As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country…This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable.” This is true, our commitment to religious freedom should be unshakeable; unfortunately, it seems the Left only feels this way if it will appease selected groups, or at least as long as we’re not talking about Christians.  Take for example this claim from Glenn Beck.  He claims he was told he wouldn’t be allowed to pray at an event he was hosting.  That’s right, he can’t pray.  We’re not talking about a Church built (not even one built on a Muslim holy site), we’re not talking about going door-to-door proselytizing to atheists or even using a town square for a nativity scene.  We’re talking about prayer, One-on-one talk with God, led by Mr. Beck.  Where is the outrage from the Left?  What about a Christian’s religious freedom or right to worship where ever he chooses, regardless of whom that offends?  I mean I know America is no longer a Christian nation, but still, shouldn’t Christians be given the same right as a Muslim?  I know there will never be an outcry from the Left about this, but why not?  I thought religious freedom was sacrosanct.  Maybe it’s time to admit this is an all out war on an ideology, specifically Conservative Christians.  People have known this a long time, but will the Left finally admit it?  I doubt it…

  1. I think this just shows that Christians are right since the devil is only trying to destroy our worship and no other religion! We just have to continue standing up for our beliefs!
