Dear Friends,

We hear much these days about "tolerance" and "acceptance." Too often, when used by the Left, these terms really mean, "Agree with me - or else."

Consider: In 2011, a young woman in suburban Seattle had to go to federal court to be allowed say something during her high school valedictory address. That "something" was a simple prayer, offered in Jesus' Name. Does the mention of the Savior so threaten religious sensibilities that it must be adjudicated from the bench? Really?

Last week, FRC President Tony Perkins partnered with Liberty Institute President Kelly Shackleford to launch our new joint study, "Religious Hostility in America." A catalog of 600 cases of anti-religious - and predominantly anti-Christian - bigotry, the report demonstrates how expressions of traditional faith increasingly are under assault in many realms of public life. You can download the report, and learn more about FRC's efforts on behalf of religious liberty, here.

"It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor," wrote the then-new President George Washington in 1789. Those words were true at the nation's founding. We would do well to heed them, carefully and completely, today.
