A Different Climate Appearing?

News about American religious freedom has not been good in recent years. Religious Americans have watched in amazement as courts have ignored it, liberal sectors in the country disowned it after years of accepting and advancing it as a core commitment, and opinion against it has solidified even as religious liberty advocates articulated at length that religious commitments must be ultimate. Religious freedom has been placed in quotation marks to indicate that it is not real if used against the liberal/left agenda, and we are told instead that ultimate commitment must be to the state.

This writer has maintained for several years that as Christians we must always bear first an unchanging commitment to God, regardless of devastating penalties or any prospect of the return of religious freedom. It seems that many Christians do have such a commitment, while a large part of the public is now unalterably opposed – including most importantly the news media and the American establishment generally.

The key to the overall struggle lies with the uncommitted and indifferent, people who would understand as most people do the need and the right to decline actions believed to be wrong, but can be swayed when the question is presented using such words as “gay rights” or “discrimination.”

But the reality of an unbending sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) regime, denying liberty of conscience against homosexual or transgender behavior as well as persons, and the polite but firm refusal of committed Christians not to be complicit in activities that they believe to be sinful or immoral, may be leading to a new public perception.
