Attacks on religious liberties have increased by 133 percent according to an annual research survey. Over 1,400 cases are documented in the publication, “”Undeniable: The Survey of Hostility to Religion in America,” produced by First Liberty Institute.
The survey covers hostilities towards various religions in schools, military, public arena and even Churches and ministries.
First Liberty Institute is a Texas based legal concern. They began, “distributing its “Undeniable” survey to meet a challenge, issued more than a dozen years ago, by Senators Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., and John Cornyn, R-Tx. They’d held a hearing in which a number of Americans testified about hostilities toward religious freedom. At the time, naysayers tried to assure the senators these were just isolated incidents” Reports CBN News.
According to First Liberty CEO Kelly Shackelford, although this report covers 1,400 cases, that number is only a fraction of the actual cases. “…it is just the tip of the iceberg because what’s published is really a fraction of what is actually happening,” said Shackelford.
