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?

Grace, I thought your post was entirely accurate. If we want sincere converts, it is through tolerance and love, not coercion, that we will win them; this is evidenced by the crypto Christians of the 19th century. In addition, I think it is important to stand up for religious freedom for all because that is the very definition of religious freedom. It is not freedom if only our group is allowed. If we do not stand up for the rights of others, they will not advocate for us if we find ourselves in the same position someday.
