At Values Voter Summit, Christians Relay Stories of Religious Repression

posted on October 14, 2013

The topic of religious freedom was a big theme at this year’s Values Voter Summit, reports The Washington Times’ Cheryl Wetzstein. “The Survey of Religious Hostility in America has found about 1,200 current incidents of religious persecution — about twice as many as last year, the Liberty Institute and the Family Research Council said in a report,” she writes. “The survey tallies challenges to public prayer in schools and in public events, efforts to remove crosses on veterans memorials, and rejection of public displays of Nativity scenes and the Ten Commandments. It also includes cases in which companies with religious convictions are forced to abide by health care rules that require coverage for ‘abortion-inducing’ products.”
