The deeply troubling federal report targeting religious freedom

The Independence Day parade on July 4, 2015, in Washington. (Charles Ommanney/The Washington Post) Nearly 225 years after the ratification of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the cause of conscience protected by the principles of “no establishment” and “free exercise” may be losing support in the minds and hearts of the American people. Appeals by religious individuals and groups for exemption from government laws and regulations that substantially burden religious practice are increasingly unpopular and controversial. So much so that many in the media have taken to using scare quotes, transforming religious freedom into “religious freedom.” Now the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights appears to be recommending that we make it official: Our first freedom is first no more. According to a commission report released Sept. 7, “civil rights protections ensuring nondiscrimination, as embodied in the Constitution, laws, and policies, are of preeminent importance in American jurisprudence.” If we accept this assertion, it means that conflicts between religious freedom and nondiscrimination principles are resolved by denying accommodation for religious conscience – except perhaps in very rare and narrow circumstances. According to the findings of the commission: “Religious exemptions to the protections of civil rights based upon classifications such as race, color, national origin, sex, disability status, sexual orientation, and gender identity, when they are permissible, significantly infringe upon those civil rights.” The findings and recommendations of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights – an independent, bipartisan, fact-finding federal agency – carry weight with government officials responsible for national civil rights policy and enforcement. Robust protection for civil rights is, of course, essential in a democratic society. But so is protection for liberty of conscience. Despite dark chapters of religious discrimination, the United States has a long and honorable history of taking claims of conscience seriously.

If you surveyed Americans, asking them to identify themselves as: A) Catholic B) Muslim C) Evangelical D) Mormon …and so on, an increasing number will select the very last option—none of the above. […]

Engage in Religious Freedom Debate Constructively, Mormon Leaders Say

full

At a religious freedom conference for Latter-day Saints in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas, Elder Dallin H. Oaks encouraged members to get involved “in a constructive way in the vital contest for religious freedom.” Emphasizing messages he has shared previously, he counseled local Mormons to seek a cease-fire in the culture wars and to employ a “fairness for all” approach in defending religious freedom because our pluralistic world requires we “live peacefully” with each other. Elder Oaks, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was joined by Church general counsel Elder Lance B. Wickman and Elder Von G. Keetch of the Seventy. Their comments at this regional religious freedom conference (the first of its kind) coincide with the creation of a religious freedom page on LDS.org. Although religious freedom may seem a subject more fit for those with law and political science degrees, Elder Oaks said “literally everyone, from kindergarten children through the ranks of professionals and mothers and fathers and friends and neighbors can and should understand what religious freedom is and why it is important.” Elder Wickman recited a brief history of the struggle that was the creation of the United States Constitution, and he reminded Mormons that in addition to belonging to a church they are also citizens. It is “we the people” who are to “do the hard work of citizenship that is necessary to protect and preserve rights so painfully established” in America, he said. Like Elder Oaks, Elder Wickman urged Latter-day Saints to actively participate in today’s religious freedom discussions. He said the most important freedoms to protect are “those that relate to private and ecclesiastical contexts, or are part of the rights of all citizens.

“The Star-Spangled Banner”

verse three

was written by Francis Scott Key in 1814 about the American victory at the Battle of Fort McHenry. We only sing the first verse, but Key penned three more. This is the third verse:

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,

That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion

A home and a Country should leave us no more?

Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

   

American Treasures of the Library of Congress: Memory (Star-Spangled Banner). In 1814, Francis Scott Key wrote new words for a well-known drinking song, “To Anacreon in Heaven,” to celebrate America’s recent victory over the British.

This reminded me: while on my mission, we were invited to attend a group of ladies meeting in one of their homes. We were invited to pick a topic; from experience, they were assume to take the  opposite. I asked for suggestions and was told works, polygamy… I asked if it could be my favorite topic and was told I could. The light of Christ. Wonderful meeting.

Same scripture we used as our position: Book of Mormon, The Book of Moroni, Chapter 7: 15-19. I had added verse 15.
