Why Religious Liberty Arguments Aren't Working

Back in April while the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act was a major news story, Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president of The Ruth Institute, wrote of the reasons why religious liberty arguments are not working to persuade people of upholding marriage as a man-woman institution.  They are as follows:

1. People who don't believe in God couldn't give a rip whether we religious believers are inconvienenced in our religious practice.

2. We are asking our fellow citizens to give up something they value, without offering anything they value in its place.

3. We sound like we are whining about ourselves. No one finds whining appealing.

You can read about these reasons in further detail, and the strategy of argumentation Roeback offers in place of religious liberty, here.

Stand firm in Christ,
