How exactly are the rights of christians being taken away, or infringed upon?

I am a little confused as to how the majority has lost its foothold on the whole "freedom of religion" part of our constitution?

  • HOW are your "rights" being taken away? What specifically is a "right" that you have lost?

  • Inhibiting the proliferation of Christianity into every single facet of our daily lives, from conversation on the street to monuments in capital and court buildings, probably DOES feel limiting to Christians. Part of their faith is to take it and make it part of everything you do. When they hear about a judge being forced to take down his statue of the ten commandments, or a radio station deciding not to carry a Christian song, it offends them on a very personal level. They don't understand how having Christianity in our government is dangerous, or why not basing every decision the government makes on Christian teachings is a good thing, a FREE thing. They don't understand why it is offensive to some of us that they insist that having "In God We Trust" and "One Nation Under God" being something everyone sees and hears, and so when WE insist that it be taken away, it feels like a threat, an infringement. They're wrong, tho

    That is none of your business. Why do you need to know exact? It just has been.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Seriously, if you're going to argue with me, at least come with a leg to stand on. Stay out of "debate" forums if you can't reason.

  • Christians are FINALLY being forced to share the light with others... They aren't LOOSING rights, they are simply having to honor the fact that others have them as well... Any time a "minority group" (or a number of them in this case) gain rights, those who were in power start to holler and scream about how they are loosing their rights... We saw the same thing with the women's movement - men whined they were loosing their jobs... We saw it with the civil rights movement - white bitched about loosing rights to blacks... Every time those in power are forced to share the power, you see a "revolt" - they aren't actually loosing anything besides the right to force others in to living how they feel they should...

  • Why did you even ask if it does not affect you?
    Christians have lost alot of freedom and I agree with the other poster but there is even more, and its just getting worse.
