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?

Hi, Kasey! I just want to latch on to your use of the word “coercive.” I very much agree that religious freedom (and advocating for it) is under attack. And for understandable reasons, dialogue with Muslims is particularly difficult given the political climate since 9/11. If we have to force people to the table, how are the talks genuine? By standing up for religious freedom, we create spaces where views can be expressed and discussed freely, and hopefully forward movement generated.
