  • May I ask.

    Why do you feel that you (or anyone else) is losing freedom of religion in this country?

    Just so I understand the context or where you are coming from with this question. :-)

  • Well, it seems like things are closing in that's for sure. There are few places that offer most of the freedoms our Fore Fathers enjoyed.

  • Conservatives have been losing that for years. It's a progressive agenda that would rather not see any christian beliefs in America. As long as we have our christian beliefs they cannot fulfill their agenda of government control.

  • I agree that many people are losing their religious freedoms progressively. In an effort to make all religions equally accepted, the nation's most prominent religion, Christianity, gets more and more restricted. I'm not sure how that makes any sense, but it's happening on a regular basis.

  • I think whats been happening a lot is that the freedom of religion is turning into the freedom from religion, which is not what this country was founded on. People should be able to worship whatever they want wherever they want. But keep your eyes out because this is not the only freedom in danger these days.

    Who says you cannot have your Christian beliefs? You aren't allowed to impose them upon anyone else, that's all. You CAN pray in public schools. You CANNOT force them to stop instruction to allow you to pray, NOR can you force anyone else to stop and pray. But if you want to pray? Go right ahead!

  • Oh please. Tell me what freedoms you are losing? This is such obvious right wing talking point. Wjen you ask what freedoms? They can't come up with any. They are just in love with scare tactics. OH no they are coming for our freedom.

  • I haven't lost anything. I am still free to go to church if I choose, I happen not to choose but no one has taken that freedom away from me.
