religious freedom and non discrimination

Talking about . . . religious freedom and non-discrimination

Our constitution guarantees our freedom to express our religion. But what happens when our religious beliefs impact others in society? How can we honor and respect others with different viewpoints? Most recently, the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage was the law of the land. But what about traditionalists whose creed says that it is a sin?  This conversation is about the line between individual rights and community values…plus the role of government.

The First Amendment of our Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…" Under the Internal Revenue Code, 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. In light of this amendment and regulation, and in the context of the political division in our country, how do we conduct ourselves as people of the Gospel who are also responsible citizens?
