Russell Moore appeared on Fox News yesterday to talk about Obamacare’s contraception mandate and the threat that it poses to religious liberty. The money quote is at the end. From the transcript at FoxNews.com:
You can see this happening all over the country not only related to Obamacare. This is just one fiery rafter in a burning house. Religious liberty is under assault all over the place in this country in ways that I think are probably more pronounced than we have seen since the founding era… People who are doing good things in their communities motivated by religious convictions are simply being driven out of the public square because they won’t sing out of the hymn book of the church of the sexual revolution. I just don’t think we can live this way as Americans.
He’s spot-on about this. The battle is being waged on multiple fronts, and we are going to have to be vigilant on all sides of this challenge. If ever Southern Baptists (and other evangelicals!) have needed an active and engaged ERLC, it’s right now. And I am grateful that is precisely what we have. Watch the rest above.
