Liberty Sunday

From the Family Research Council:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." So begins the Bill of Rights with the first amendment to our Constitution -- one that guarantees a God-given freedom. For over 200 years the light of the church has illuminated this freedom, but now a radical agenda seeks to extinguish that flame. The expansion of anti-discrimination laws, including family law, to include homosexuality inevitably constricts Americans' right to express and act on their religious beliefs.

FRC is tracking these incidents as they occur throughout the country. Now we need your help. We are compiling stories from across the nation on how the homosexual agenda has threatened religious liberty. You can help us show America that government sponsorship of the homosexual agenda is a threat to the freedoms we value the most.

Have you been forced to attend pro-homosexual "diversity" training at work? Have your children been subjected to pro-homosexual books or rhetoric in school? If your religious liberties have been affected in these or other ways, we want to hear from you. Send us your stories - the where, the when, and the what. With your permission, we will publish and publicize these incidents so that all will know these are not random events, but the inevitable result of a clash of basic beliefs that puts religious freedom on a course of extinction.

Then, join us as we address these issues at Liberty Sunday: Defending our First Freedom, a live simulcast this Sunday, October 15, 2006 from Boston, Massachusetts.
