Topic: Religious Liberty Today.
The First Amendment to the Constitution begins, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” What did the founders mean by that, and is it being distorted in our day? We are seeing many scenarios where Christian people are treated as virtually 2nd class citizens in America. In many school settings, it seems as if just about any idea under the sun is welcome, but not Christian perspectives. And it’s been like this for a few decades now? How are we to understand this, and can we turn it around? William J. Federer is a best-selling author and highly sought after public speaker. His classic book of quotes, America’s God and Country, was even cited by the Supreme Court in a case where they said yes—we can have prayer in Jesus’ name in a town meeting, since this book shows the founders were doing that in Congress before we even became a nation. Bill Federer joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss this issue. www.americanminute.com
