Generations matter. We each carry a vital part of the story. We must understand one another and communicate more effectively. Millennials, you have been commissioned for this hour. Those that have gone before us have great wisdom for us to glean. Together we are giving the next generation of Americans hope. Together, members of all generations, can ensure that America's greatest days are still ahead. .

Recently in Bekasi, Indonesia, "a mob of 300 Islamic extremists threw bags of urine and ditchwater, rotten eggs, stones and dirt" at Christians trying to hold an Ascension Day service. In places as diverse as northern Nigeria, Vietnam, North Korea, Egypt, and China, believers arepersecuted daily for proclaiming their belief in Jesus.
Could such persecution ever happen here in the U.S.? As far-fetched as this might seem, it's not too much of a leap to ask if the seeds for such oppression are not being sewn.

Last week, FRC Senior Fellow Ken Blackwell gave an eloquent address at a major Washington, D.C. conference on the growing threats to America's "first freedom."As Ken noted, many of the battles for religious liberty are taking place at the state level. Contact your local elected representatives to learn what's being done either to threaten or strengthen the freedom of religion in your home state - and get primed to engage, graciously but firmly, in the struggle for it.
