Here’s another good post from Skye Jethani on why it’s important for Christians to defend religious freedom for more than just Christians;
In Barna’s 2012 study, which uncovered this same discrepancy, David Kinnaman wrote:
“The research raises the question as to why Christians are so much more concerned about religious freedom than any other group…. What is it Christians are trying to protect and why do they feel under threat? Is this an example of a historically privileged group losing some of their privileges? Is it possible that evangelicals are interpreting their loss of religious privilege as loss of religious freedom?”
If we are worried about a level playing field for religious practise (as distinct from legislating religious adherence) we may have lost our appreciation for the innate winsome of Christ.
