In this talk, Arland Nichols identifies and discusses how our first and most cherished freedom – religious freedom – is threatened today. He presents a number of shocking situations where citizens of our beloved country are being forced to act against their conscience and religious beliefs. He shows how federal and state governments are taking not so subtle steps to strip away the robust understanding of freedom of religion that is the hallmark of the American experiment. In the midst of the dictatorship of relativism, religion is increasingly viewed as a threat to progress, and people of faith are increasingly unwelcome in participating in the public square. Finally, he speaks about how we can stop this and turn the tide.
