What happens when laws that should be for the benefit of the people turn into something that restricts religious freedom instead? That’s when the Alliance for Defending Freedom steps. Last episode featured Travis Barham of the ADF and the topic was defending the freedom of speech. This week our guest is Matt Sharp of the ADF, and the topic is defending the freedom of conscience.

Freedom of Conscience is more than the freedom of Worship, or even the Freedom of Religion. This freedom does cover the right to worship as you choose, and follow any faith or religion you choose, or even choose to abstain. But the Freedom of Conscience also includes the freedom of thought and the freedom of being able to act on your beliefs. It also means that you cannot be coerced into acting in a way that is contrary to your faith.

This right is considered Inalienable, even by the United Nation, which categorizes it under human rights. Our most fundamental responsibility is to stand up and act for everyone’s right to free choices and particularly for everyone’s freedom of thought, conscience, religion or belief. They go on to say that they uphold the clauses in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which does not permit any limitations whatsoever on the freedom of thought and conscience or on the freedom to have or adopt a religion or belief of one’s choice. These freedoms, unconditionally protected by universal norms, are also sacred and inalienable entitlements according to religious teachings.

And here in the United States, The First Amendment of the Constitution states that: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. That would seem to say that any laws written can’t interfere with a persons right to live out their faith. But as we discuss in today’s episode, that isn’t always how the laws get interpreted. And that’s where Matt, Travis, and the rest of the Aliance Defending Freedom step in. So join Tom, Nate and Matt as they explore how we can uphold our Freedom of Conscience. But first join our hosts for part two of why we’ve declared this July ‘Freedom Month’.
