Religious freedom has been on my mind a lot lately. I have been trying to read as many books, articles, addresses, etc… as I possible can on the subject. It is a flammable current issue but a “fundamental right of paramount importance.”
I recently reviewed an address by Elder Lance B. Wickman, general counsel for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His remarks brought an intelligent, yet cautionary perspective to the cause of promoting religious freedom. It was delivered in early July at the Religious Freedom Conference, sponsored by International Center for Law and Religious Studies at Brigham Young University. Here is a link to his address.
The secularist and/or humanist age isn’t going to die off overnight or at the end of the week. Many in their ranks are indifferent followers. Some are ignorant. Some angrily rebellious. Some are very intelligent and study and plot to destroy religious liberty. Elder Wickman’s words offer sound advice as the battle intensifies.
