A weekly roundup of exciting things happening at First Liberty.

Remembering The Fallen and How Religion Carried Them Through

Senior Counsel Danielle Runyan,  who serves as First Liberty’s Military Affairs Practice Group Chair, wrote an op-ed for The Washington Times to commemorate Memorial Day and the positive impact of religious liberty in our nation’s armed forces:

“Memorial Day is a time of great reflection to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to our nation, how religion played an integral role in their service, and our continued remembrance of their dedication to something greater than themselves… Despite the push for a secular nation, many fail to realize that religion and religious liberty have always played an essential role in society and culture, making them necessary ingredients for good governance and a strong military.”

The True Cost Of Christian Denominations Going Bust

CRCD Senior Fellow Stephen Presley wrote an op-ed for Religion Unplugged discussing the decline of mainline churches in America and what this means for religious freedom:

“Despite its imperfections, the church provides a sense of community, a spiritual bond directing us to walk with one another in the love of God…The loss of community is not something that just affects local congregations, but affects the larger networks that produce social unity. Christianity has worked as a retaining wall to hold back the destabilizing pressure of American hyper-individualism, but that was also because Churches worked together creating the kind of religious pluralism that undergirded the social fabric of society. We will see what happens as that fabric continues to tear.”
