Religion is not just one lifestyle choice among many. Not, at least, according to the Constitution. In fact, as Princeton’s Dr. Robert George tells John Stonestreet on today’s BreakPoint Podcast, “in our constitutional tradition, religion is singled out for special care. It isn’t a variant of freedom generally . . . Our founding fathers, those who bequeathed to us this great constitutional government … understood that religion has to do with the conscience.”

So at a time when so many Americans—not to mention our lawmakers and local officials—fail to understand religion’s privileged status under the Constitution, Christians must be especially vigilant to protect our religious freedoms—even as we make sacrifices during the current pandemic.
