Defend America's First Freedom

Stand With Us To Help Protect Our Nation's Religious Liberty

Our Founding Fathers considered religious liberty our "first freedom," the bedrock upon which all other freedoms rest. Sadly, our country today would be unrecognizable to our Founders. America now has a small minority of powerful leaders who are using the courts, Congress and the federal government to suppress and remove religious freedom, turning the First Amendment upside down.

In 2004, Liberty Institute President and CEO Kelly Shackelford, along with a number of the organization's clients, testified in the U.S. Senate about the growing religious hostility in America. Because the opposition insisted these select testimonies were isolated incidents, Liberty Institute collected additional information and developed the first "hostilities document." The shocking number of cases made it clear…this was a very real problem, and it affected every age, and every religious group in every community across the country.

Fast-forward ten years, and hostility toward religious liberty has reached an all-time high. America's First Freedom – the freedom of religion – is being pushed out of public life, our schools, our churches, and even our military.

To alert the nation about this very serious issue, Liberty Institute, joined by the Family Research Council (FRC), launched the 2013 Edition of Undeniable: The Survey of Hostility to Religion in America, a compilation of almost 1,200 documented incidents of religious bigotry that have occurred throughout the country – most in the past 10 years.
