How do today’s young people view religious liberty? Given that millennials have grown up within a culture dominated by political correctness and a misunderstanding of true tolerance, then it’s not surprising that so many view religious liberty as a personal, individual right but not one that extends to the larger marketplace.
Unfortunately, by defining religious liberty through the eyes of individualism, many millennials miss the point. Writes FRC’s Mary Beasley, “Societies are formed by individuals, many of whom infuse religious practices into their daily lives. They naturally affect, influence, and inspire those around them. Therefore, religion cannot be displaced from the actions of the individual just as the individual cannot be displaced from society. Therefore, religion cannot be contained from society.”
