The terms “religious freedom” and “religious liberty” are actually just code words for racism, intolerance, sexism, discrimination, and more, according to a radical left-wing activist Obama appointee serving as chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR). In a report released this month on balancing religious freedom with government decrees, the controversial outfit also called on policymakers to limit as much as possible religious exemptions on everything from mandated support for homosexuality to allowing men into girls' bathrooms. Critics, though, are outraged at the bigotry and intolerance displayed by Obama's extremist appointees.

For a self-proclaimed atheist, billionaire statist George Soros sure spends a lot of money on “Christian” causes and groups. But it is not because he is interested in spreading the Gospel, or even in helping the poor. Instead, hacked e-mails from his vast empire of shady tax-exempt foundations show that the radical “philanthropist” wants to change the views of Christians and churches around the world using deceit, manipulation, and money.
On Sunday morning, August 29, a group of about a dozen faithful Catholics stood silently outside Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine’s home church, St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Richmond, holding up signs drawing attention to Kaine’s persistent refusal to abide by his church’s teachings on abortion.
Wyoming is poised to kick a judge off the bench, simply for expressing her opinion that she could not perform a same-sex wedding, raising the question: Is this an example of a religious test, forbidden by the Wyoming state constitution?

When you hear about government controlling church sermons, you might assume that China or Cuba would be the scene of such tyranny.
