Is it Freedom of Religion or Freedom of Worship?


What is in a word?

The attack on religious liberty is a two front war. One front you know about, the other one you may not have noticed.


This is nowhere more apparent today than in the President's repeated use of the phrase "freedom of worship" rather than "freedom of religion." They prefer and proffer this language change because "freedom of worship" is about something you do for one hour a week. "Freedom of religion" is about how you live in the other 167 hours of the week. The secularist left now in control of our government is content to allow one hour of free "worship" so long as they get to tell you how to live the other 167 hours. Of course, our Constitution does not guarantee us merely freedom of worship but freedom of religion. The first amendment is about all 168 hours a week, which is the whole point. The secularist left hopes that by repeated references to freedom of worship, you will eventually come to accept the diminution of your God-given rights.

There is a lot in a word. It is why the Constitution is written and why we should use the words of the Constitution against those who would diminish our rights for their government gain.
