The Latest from Cardus Religious Freedom
“Religious freedom is profoundly rooted in who we are as human beings and in our inherit dignity as human beings. Religious freedom is not necessarily about the protection of the private aspects of our lives of faith because we are always free in our inner life of faith, even if you are imprisoned you can still continue to practice your faith. Religious freedom is fundamentally about living fully who you are who you were called to be in the public square” - Rev. Dr. Andrew Bennett
Christianity Today reports on a Canadian politician who speaks publicly about the importance of her faith.
"At Cardus, [Andrew] Bennett sees dangers associated with both the American and Canadian approaches to religion and politics. He worries that in some ways, Christians in the US have come to conflate their faith and politics. While he believes Christians should be involved in politics and be active and informed citizens, it is dangerous when politics becomes core of a person’s identity. "
