Suggested Readings: Undeniable: The Survey of Hostility to Religion in America

June 1, 2017

Hostility to religion in America is rising like floodwaters, as proven by the increased numbers of cases and attacks documented in this report. This flood is engulfing ordinary citizens who simply try to live normal lives according to their faith and conscience. It is eroding the bedrock on which stand vital American institutions such as government, education, the military, business, houses of worship, and charity. It has the potential to wash away the ground that supports our other rights, including freedom of speech, press, assembly, and government by consent of the people. – Kelly Shackelford, First Liberty Institute

The First Liberty Institute has documented hundreds of cases of religious persecution and hostility here in the U.S. in their new study, “Undeniable: The Survey of Hostility to Religion in America.”  The authors suggest that hostility towards those of faith is increasing and expanding.  This is a difficult, but important topic, and I recommend reading the study.
