Reply To: In your opinion, why is it important for Christians to stand up for religious freedom for people of all faiths, and not just our own?

As John Locke said, “I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” The day that Christians stop defending the right of Muslims to worship openly is the day that we too invite opposition to our own right to practice. The key to open worship is not theocracy, but tolerance. Furthermore, Christ is not interested in the worship of those who are being forced against their will. He desires for men and women to come to Him honestly and humbly, presenting their hearts in the hope of genuine reconciliation.
