10 Questions to Help Determine if Your Religious Liberty Is Being Threatened

The Rev. Emily C. Heath has devised a simple quiz that will let you know if you’re being oppressed. I have already found it to be a powerful tool for sorting out conflicting claims about violations of religious liberty, which has become one of the hot topics on Roman Catholic web- and blog-sites in this country. You will find the quiz on Huffington Post. Here are three of the questions that I particularly liked:

1. My religious liberty is at risk because:

A) I am not allowed to marry the person I love legally, even though my religious community blesses my marriage.
B) Some states refuse to enforce my own particular religious beliefs on marriage on those two guys in line down at the courthouse.

2. My religious liberty is at risk because:

A) I am being forced to use birth control.
B) I am unable to force others to not use birth control.

3. My religious liberty is at risk because:

A) Being a member of my faith means that I can be bullied without legal recourse.
B) I am no longer allowed to use my faith to bully gay kids with impunity.
