Religious liberty is not freedom from ridicule

    Russell Moore: If we are a free people in a constitutional government, we should expect our government to leave consciences free. We will work for liberty and justice, for all. But that means that we should also expect many free people to jeer at us as crazy or stupid. We will walk with Jesus and bear such reviling, without reviling back (1 Pet. 2:22-23). As citizens, we should expect freedom of religion. As Christians, we shouldn’t expect freedom from ridicule.
